Mastering the Calendar Challenge during Email Migration Using OnTime
For many years, OnTime has been an integrated part of Evonik-employees’ everyday work environment. Therefore, it was natural to use OnTime for stability when Evonik decided to change their mail platform from IBM to Microsoft. During the implementation phase, OnTime played an unexpected but fundamental part bridging the way from one mail platform to another. OnTime carried the organization through chaotic changes by keeping the employees in sync and up to date, preventing the internal coordination from being compromised.
”OnTime carried our organization through the chaotic changes of migrating from one email platform to another by enabling the scheduling overview for our employees allowing our internal coordination to stay intact”
The group calendar served as a vital tool in assuring Evonik employees an overview of their colleagues working in both the IBM and Microsoft environment. The easily accessible and editable scheduling lifted the coordination skill level in the organization making sure that the migration process didn’t negatively affect their customer service, flexibility or transparency. This allowed the company to get to the other side without having to spend any energy worrying about the internal and external consequences of migrating.
Request and OnTime Meets Your Needs
Evonik has been early adopters of social business software in terms of IBM Connections. Therefore, they found great value in OnTime’s advanced calendar widgets for this platform. As active customers, they are also thrilled that OnTime engages their customers by taking requests into consideration for future releases. An example of this is the upcoming implementation of Microsoft Teams as a new platform for Evonik’s project groups. Likewise, many of their earlier suggestions are now integrated into the group calendar and improving their scheduling experience on the daily.
