Context

Seeking to stand out from their competitors and make life simpler and less stressful for millions of Canadians with easy-to-use technology that is dependable, fast, and accurate.

Our Customer was tasked with the deployment of dedicated software that would cover the entire network of newly implemented devices. This large-scale innovative project required special knowledge of custom software development, particularly of .NET development specifics, so the Customer turned to datawalls to handle a part of the project.

Solution

The project included custom development and implementation of a new intranet on top of the video conferencing for use by the  managers, students  and trainers.

The Video Conferencing Platform  

Datawalls engineers customized and deployed the OpenCms platform to introduce the following:

  • Core features, including content publishing workflows, integrated templates, a sitemap, and navigation management.
  • Content areas, such as the distributor finder, testimonials, use cases, maintenance and service guidelines, installers, events, news, product descriptions, and more.
  • The training and examination module, where users can take up the company’s online courses relevant to their position and pass internal tests in line with their content access rights.
  • File sharing, to enable content distribution across teams and departments.
  • User account and access management, which allows admins to create, manage and deactivate user accounts, assign user rights, set content access levels, etc.
