Real EstateReal Estate Firm Saves $500,000, Improves Service Delivery with Collaboration Solution
Jones Lang LaSalle had grown rapidly—and outgrown its tools for collaboration and content management. At the same time, an economic slowdown and global competition increased the company’s challenges. To fuel continued growth, Jones Lang LaSalle adopted a consistent solution for its intranet, client extranet, and Internet sites. Based on the 2007 Microsoft® Office system, including Microsoft Office SharePoint® Server 2007, the solution replaces flurries of e-mail messages with collaboration team workspaces that business units create and control themselves. Centralized enterprise content management reduces version control problems, eliminates the need to support storage of multiple document copies, and saves the company U.S.$500,000 per year. The solution was adopted with little or no customization required, containing development costs and speeding time-to-benefit.
