Careers guidance company Morrisby provides help and advice to people about their education and career options. Established over 50 years ago, their careers guidance products are now used in over 1,000 schools throughout the world.
The team at Morrisby needed to develop an intranet that would incorporate their existing document management system. It also needed to be flexible enough to store different assets and files within the folders, yet simple enough for all of their employees to use. As many of existing solutions are complex and don’t offer easy integration of document management, this search proved to be something of a struggle, until they discovered OverDRIVE.
Frequently used as an intranet and web portal, OverDRIVE which uses documents and data from Google Drive and other cloud applications to automatically generate a site, was a perfect solution. As an existing Google Apps user, Drive offered a simple and familiar way to build the intranet and the OverDRIVE team worked closely with Morrisby to ensure that the site delivered specifically what the organisation needed.
CTO for OverDRIVE, Ian Weatherhogg commented “Because OverDRIVE reflects your existing Drive structure it automatically creates a site that is unique to your organisation and evolves with it and it’s this level of flexibility that sets OverDRIVE apart.”
I spent a long time trying to find something that would allow us to build our intranet and incorporate our document management system into the same system. As a Google Apps customer, OverDRIVE offers the familiarity of Drive, with the security of Google Apps in a user friendly way, to deliver a hard working and bespoke intranet. With great support during development, and beyond from the OverDRIVE team, we couldn’t have asked for more.
