Customer = Defra

The United Kingdom (U.K.) government’s Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs (Defra) discharges its responsibilities through 3,000 core employees, dispersed throughout the country, who collaborate with a range of outside experts and stakeholders. Defra wanted a combined electronic document and records management (EDRM) system, and a tool set for 10,000 people to improve collaboration and comply with the government’s modernising agenda for e-government services. Defra chose Microsoft® Office SharePoint® Server 2007 to fulfil all three objectives with a standardised solution. Users are now creating records as part of their everyday work due to the automated workflows, without any extra burden. The department hopes to make significant cost savings by adopting a single system for records management and collaboration.
