SharePoint Online Intranet

A leading provider of HR consulting services worked with Imaginet to create a brand new company intranet in SharePoint Online to replace their 10-year old corporate, on-premises employee intranet. Imaginet worked very closely with their communications team to design, build, and configure an Intranet Communications Hub. Using all of the latest features provided by a modern SharePoint solution, the Hub linked all of their company divisions and locations together with common navigation and news feeds that fed to the top of the Hub from each of the separate sites. Custom themes and page templates were created to achieve the desired look and feel and were propagated to all sites in the solution. Lastly, to ensure proper handoff at the end of the project, Imaginet provided train-the-trainer sessions to help ensure the proper look and feel were maintained.

SharePoint 2013 to SharePoint Online Migration

A not-for-profit research organization engaged Imaginet to plan and lead a migration effort from their existing SharePoint 2013 environment to SharePoint Online. Part of this migration effort was to develop and roll out a new intranet using the latest SharePoint modern technology and branding customizations. This new Intranet was utilized as a hub site to connect all the site collections that were created and migrated to as part of the new SharePoint Online Site Taxonomy standards. Power Apps was used to replace existing InfoPath forms with new modern forms and Power Automate running in the background to process the approvals and notifications.

SharePoint Intranet Modernization

North America’s favourite craft store engaged Imaginet to design, configure, and deploy a new intranet. Their goal was to connect employees with the corporate brand and learn more about news, events, and initiatives using the latest SharePoint Online modernization technology. Imaginet conducted workshops to review the types of content that needed to be published. From these workshops, Imaginet designed wireframes and mock-ups using modern UI and existing brand colours and styles with a consistent Information Architecture wrapped in corporate security for easy administration. The new design resulted in a new modern intranet experience that is easier to use and easier to share.

SharePoint Online Restructure and Redesign

A charity organization engaged Imaginet to restructure and redesign their current SharePoint Online environment using the latest best practices and guidance from Microsoft. Team members were originally working in a nested sub site structure that did not facilitate Teams usage that was ramping up within the organization. We used this opportunity to promote their current active sub sites into site collections with the ability to add Teams to them. We also created a new Communication hub site to link all of the sites together. We archived the inactive sites in read-only to allow the historical records to persist but out of the way of current work. Custom themes for SharePoint were also designed and applied.

Microsoft 365 Implementation

A faith-based organization engaged Imaginet to implement Microsoft 365. Many team members used traditional methods, like storing files directly onto their hard drive or OneDrive, and email to share files. Or communicating and scheduling meetings using various instant messaging apps. With so many team members comfortable with their current setup, adoption to Microsoft 365 proved difficult at the beginning. Imaginet setup multiple review and training sessions with different teams to understand and resolve any issues and concerns. With User Adoption Coaching, Imaginet helped get everyone on board to use the new Microsoft 365 platform and improve collaboration.

SharePoint 2013 to SharePoint Online Migration

An insurance provider engaged Imaginet to migrate their SharePoint 2013 content to SharePoint Online. To ensure a seamless process from start to finish, Imaginet conducted Business Content Audit sessions with the insurance provider to properly identify content and site taxonomy. Once determined and approved, Imaginet used Sharegate to migrate their content safely. With the switch to online, Imaginet can now design and develop modernized business processes using new tools only found in Microsoft 365 unique to the clients needs.

Custom Teams Configuration with Business Process Automation

A municipal power agency engaged Imaginet to address their content and collaboration challenges. With so many committee members creating single adhoc agendas, their content system was left severely disconnected. Imaginet configured a custom Microsoft Teams solution to streamline processes across different committees and allow members to collaborate effectively. Power Automate Flow was integrated to create a series of automations. Folders are automatically created for each new agenda in its channel based on meeting dates, agenda drafts are created from existing templates, and leadership gets notified when documents are ready for review and approval. Flow can also create and assign tasks to members based on actions outlined in the agenda. With the power of Microsoft Teams and the ease of automated Flows, their committees can now effectively collaborate and post messages for all agenda members to see.

Project Site Automation

An engineering company engaged Imaginet to replace their manual project site creation process with an automated solution. Admins were required to follow a long and tedious step-by-step manual to create all the different areas required to store content. To automate their process, Imaginet created templated sites and stored site templates as XML using PnP. Azure Runbook and Power Automate were utilized to automatically create the templated site when new items are entered into a project list, saving the organization much needed time and resources to focus on other important tasks.

SharePoint Workflows

A leading manufacturer and wholesale distributor engaged Imaginet to correct a previous SharePoint engagement with another consultancy. There were many unfinished SharePoint 2010/2013 workflows in a SharePoint Online environment and a tight deadline that their workflows would no longer work in SharePoint Online. The client site was extremely slow because of External Content Types being using throughout the environment. Imaginet removed the External Content Types and replaced with an Azure syncing function to store data in real SharePoint lists synced from a database in Azure. Imaginet worked quickly to redevelop a selection of workflows as Power Automate Flows to ensure use of the latest tools to prevent issues going forward.

Google Workspace to Microsoft Teams Migration

A financial services firm engaged Imaginet to recommend a single tool to improve their business processes. They had used Google Workspace for storage, Trello for project planning, and a custom solution for internal communication which each required authentication and juggling to get their jobs done. Imaginet proposed a solution by configuring an Information Architecture in Microsoft Teams to include all features for effective communication, simple content storage, and secure planning and sharing with their customers. Imaginet performed multiple working sessions with their technical teams to understand their business needs, configured the one stop shop that meets all their unique goals, and successfully migrated their content from Google Workspace to Microsoft Teams.

Modernized Data Storage and Reporting

A crown corporation engaged Imaginet to design a storage structure of data from a retiring IBM UniData system, extract the data, prepare it for storage, replicate the ODBC connection functionality in SQL Server and Excel, replicate reports in a reporting tool, and develop trust in the data. Data was extracted to a SQL Server database using SSIS pipelines and C# custom applications. SQL objects were created to prepare the database as a source for analytics tools. Reports were built using Microsoft SSRS and ASP.NET. The data was also provided to power users through an Excel connection.
