xECM- accelerated business process at DNVGL

Information connected across 2 Oracle clouds, 7 apps and Office 365 with OpenText xECM

Author: Ilja Ziegler, Peer Lohmann

Connecting content to key business processes across lead business applications has dramatically increased
efficiency and improved insight for different users across the Enterprise at DNVGL. In its NGPS (Next Generation Productions System) DNVGL implemented a new CRM and production system based on Oracle Cloud products.

This program addressed everyday business problems:

  1. A winning business process needs to allow Sales to secure new orders
  2. An executing business process needs to allow the delivery teams to deliver in
    time & quality
  3. A seamless handover from sales to delivery teams needs to be enabled

DNVGL partnered with InfoSys to deliver the needed CRM and ERP functionality for the NGPS program. Turnpikes joined this program to provide the needed information management within the each business process and especially to secure the seamless handover of information between processes. The product of choice for the information management was OpenText xECM. Within the agreed time lines NGPS was rolled out to thousands of users around the globe.

“xECM provides our knowledge workers access to the right information throughout each step of the business process.”

“Turnpikes was exceptionally fast to understand our business needs.”

“If the users process an email on MS Outlook 365,
prepare a proposal in Oracle Sales cloud or issue a
certificate in Oracle Service cloud, they all share and access the information via the central OpenText xECM repository.”

 Roger Engelstad, Senior IT Engineer at DNVGL.

“This allowed them to find practical approaches to different challenges and deliver the OpenText xECM in time & quality despite a challenging timeline.”

NGPS is now live in the Americas, Asia Pacific and EMEA used by thousands of end users. Daily hosting more than 3.9mio document workspaces with more than 18mio documents & emails.
