Bridon-Bekaert The Ropes Group works on better collaboration, communication and knowledge sharing with a unified intranet platform.
Bridon-Bekaert The Ropes Group is a successful joint venture between Bekaert, a world market and technological forerunner in steel wire transformation and coatings, and Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, the owner of Bridon. Following this recent merger and international growth, the information was spread across a number of obsolete communication platforms at the different entities. And this while communication and sharing knowledge within the Bridon-Bekaert Group are absolute priorities in the HR, Marketing and IT policy. The visions and needs of Marketing, HR and IT were aligned and the choice was made for a new unified intranet platform based on SharePoint Online. Bridon-Bekaert contacted Spikes to put a variety of facilities in place.
