IntraCor Deliverable Three - Topic: 4 Top Use Cases

Quick Link: IntraCor Meeting Five, IntraCor Meeting Six

 

The Word form for the 4 Use Cases:  IntraCor Cases

 

4 Top Activities: Tools & Resources, Associate Services, Business Operations and Company Calendar

 

Use Case One - Tools & Resources

 

Kevin Baker – IT Manager

 

  • Company Name: eFly Travel Group Company

  • Location: Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles

  • Company Size: 125 employees

  • Job: IT Manager

  • Age: 41

 

Goals:

Find an intranet solution to allow employees the ability to customize the necessary tools and resources to perform work functions more efficiently. In addition, the solution needs to provide a link to applications for associates to perform their duties and implement security to classify various user privileges and access levels.

 

Scenario:

Kevin Baker is an IT Manager for the eFly Travel Group with headquarters in Chicago and he wants to implement an intranet portal in order to allow employees to connect directly with other branches. Prior to asking the CO for approval, Kevin did a survey at all three locations. Most employees argued that it was difficult to find the right tool for job duties quickly because they are hidden within a large folder hierarchy. In addition, employees also have a hard time trying to locate applications and files when needed. After evaluating the survey, Kevin schedules a meeting with the CO and asks for permission to launch an intranet portal that allows employees to customize integrated tools and resources based on usage and need. This solution should also enable employees to directly link to applications in order to perform duties more efficiently. In addition, Kevin also wants an integrated search engine that combines full-text search and relational query capabilities to present specific search results relating to local teams, tasks, products, and services. In order to maintain privacy, Kevin wants a security application that gives various user privileges and access levels, personalized content distribution, and data encryption.

 

For the last few years, Kevin had to connect employees from the three offices through a secure and static web page. As this model worked well for customers, it did not work well for employees. Kevin researched products that fit employee’s needs according to the surveys conducted. He wants to implement an intranet portal that gives employees the freedom of customizing tools and resources, links applications as needed, and offers security features to define user privileges and access levels.

 

Affordances

Must Have
  • Customizable Tools and Resources:
    To allow employees to tailor available tools and resources as needed for daily use.
  • Linkable Applications:
    To allow users to build and customize links to any application available on the intranet.
  • Search Capability(unique teams, tasks, products, and services: Define Metadata vocabularies):
    The search box should have predefined search groups (files, tools, help, etc.) that allow the user to find relevant content within the intranet portal more quickly.
  • Cross-Browser Support:
    To comply with the most popular web browsers, such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Google Chrome, and Opera.
Nice To Haves
  • Digital Data Management:
    This option should enhance digital media storage and distribution, file administration, and data repositories.
  • Collaboration and Communication:
    This option should include newsletter, message board, calendar, blog, VoIP, chat, and other similar tools.
  • Help Desk (including: user manual, FAQ):
    This option should provide employees with direct access to user manuals, FAQ, training videos, and (if necessary) to technical help via internet or telephone to the vendor.
  • E-mail Integration:
    This option should provide users with an implemented email function that includes customizable email templates, address book, media center, multi messenger, text message, fax, mail domain, and mobile mail.
  • Remote Access:
    This option should allow employees to access the intranet at anytime from anywhere with a valid user id and password. For security reasons, there should be a predefined user authorization, data encryption, and an access log.

Use Case Two - Associate Services

 

Rowaj Trebor - Director of Associate Services

 

  • Company Size: 6,000 employees

  • Company location: Tulsa, OK

  • Job: Director of Associate Services

  • Age: 32

 

Goals:

Create an easy to use portal page for employees as a first stop for any human resource question related to associates services. Such a system will increase worker productivity and satisfaction as many tedious tasks will be handled by the new Portal. In addition, this new solution will result in quicker information distribution to employees. This solution will reduce costs as only one location is needed to update information.

 

Scenario:

Rowaj Trebor is a Director of Associate Services at Cell-Tech, Inc. a regional wireless communication provider. His responsibilities include insuring communications between upper management and associates occur in a timely fashion throughout all regions. Rowaj finds himself catering to multiple department needs when distributing important company information.

 

This organization has been around for over 25 years and the majority of employees have over five years of experience with the company. As a result, the associates deal with each other on a very personal level and are often reluctant to change. When new information needs to be distributed to employees, it is filtered down per department and often this information is not passed along to all associates. Rowaj wants to increase the efficiency of knowledge distribution while keeping the high level of company morale currently being enjoyed even in these tough economic times.

 

With such a large company, the level of computer skill ranges from high to almost non-existent. The company employs many engineers with high computer skills while the 88-year-old founder lacks a deep knowledge of computers but will be using this new solution.

 

Rowaj determined that some of his HR employees spend up to 50% of their time answering and distributing information to employees. With this new solution, these employees will be free to work on other more desirable tasks.

 

Affordances

Use Case Three - Business Operations

 

Jimmy White - Dynamic Business Operations System

 

  • Company Size: 500 employees

  • Company location: Long Island

  • Job: CIO (Chief Investment Officer)

  • Age: 42

 

Goals:

Find a software backbone solution to adapt quickly and to reduce costs to constantly changing business, securities market and industry requirements.

 

Scenario:

Jimmy White is a CIO (Chief Investment Officer) and a Director of the Investment Department of a Securities Company. Jimmy is responsible for managing and monitoring the company's investment portfolio. Responsibilities include managing the investment portfolio and pension funds, investing surplus assets, working as a liaison with the investment community, and counseling financial analysts.

 

For the last 3 years Jimmy has been maintaining the Investment Department at the office in Long Island via telephone, email and meetings. Jimmy has found these tasks are taking up a large portion of his time and is having difficulty keeping track of tasks. His biggest challenge occurred when the company tried to access the European market and set up an Investment Office in London last year.

 

Jimmy needs to manage the Long Island office when he travels to London and develops the business in Europe. Also, he needs to monitor the European progress, when he works at the Long Island office. The telephone and email are insufficient for him to ensure the business on both sides is completed properly. He needs a system to manage and coordinate all the resources, information, functions and share data stores in two offices. The Long Island system needs to handle the daily business data as usual and the London system needs to have the ability to add or reconfigure because the business scale has not yet been determined.

 

Affordances

Use Case Four - Company Calendar

 

Williams Smith - Newly Hired Employee

 

  • Employment status: Full Time

  • Company: Procter and Gamble (P&G)

  • Location: Chicago, IL

  • Age: 27

 

Goals:

Find a way to arrange and schedule important events and meetings for the company. Employees should be able to navigate through the calendar easily when looking for a past meeting date or a forthcoming event. There must be an event reminder or a way to notify employees about any upcoming activity.

 

Scenario:

Smith is a newly hired employee and has been given the responsibility of planning the company’s events. Before the company hired Smith, the company had been facing a lot of problems concerning scheduling of meetings and hitting project deadlines.

 

Smith, a recent graduate of DePaul University, has gained experience through his internship with Johnson & Johnson. Smith's first step in fixing this problem was to talk to some serious minded employees at Procter and Gamble. From his research, he realized that the company has been scheduling meetings without proper tracking of individual's availability. In addition, some projects were scheduled to finish within an unrealistic timeframe.

 

After conducting his research, Smith worked with the IT Intranet Portal development team to include a page (section) for a company-wide calendar. The calendar will be set up in a way to warn meeting coordinators of any departmental meeting that overlaps with the same people involved in a previously scheduled meeting.  Also, there will always be a customizable pop-up a reminder set as the event's day or project deadline gets closer.  This page will also be used in retrieving past data or planning future occurrences.

 

Affordances

Must Have

  • Standard Calendar Template:
    Allows users to view and schedule meeting according to available date and time.
  • User Right / Permission:
    Allow users to view pages of the calendar that they are given access to through their password.
  • Intranet Portal:
    This is where all information will be stored and processed.
  • Events Announcement / Date:
    This will serve as a reminder for all scheduled events and projects that are approaching due dates once anyone logs into a department webpage.
  • Events Manager:
    Allows Administrator to update the calendar on a regular basis.

Nice To Haves

  • Remote Access:
    Allow users to access the page via VPN access.
  • Email Access:
    Allow users to email each other within the company.
  • Search Capabilities:
    Allow users to search for past and upcoming events.
  • User friendly:
    Allow users with basic computer knowledge to use the page.

Good tool list.

Use Cases -- your Must haves should be more descriptive and include some measure (how will you know if the candidate tool can do this? It should be noted that often checking off the capability is NOT a good way to determine best fit as HOW a feature is implemented is often very important. You may want to explore a little more exactly how people will use the tools within your scenarios. for the most part fairly well done. The weakest is your newly hired employee. The system will reject any overlapping meeting? Holy moly -- my company would never get any work done (there must be concurrent meetings -- different departments, etc.) Maybe this just needs to be rewritten more clearly.
