A very large ($50B+ yearly revenue) multinational technology corporation decided to spin-off a significant services division as a new independent company. This was complicated by the fact that the two entities would continue to have a very involved operational professional relationship. It was imperative that the new company include the instantiation of a capability to automate the request from their now customer. Cask leveraged out-of-box (OOB) Resource Management (RM) and Customer Service Management (CSM) capabilities to give the new company the capability to automate a business process currently being run in Excel to manage resources for their customer. By extending the CSM framework, Cask was able to leverage the OOB security model for internal and external users to grant access to a portal where the customer can request new resources, promotion of existing resources, authorize overtime (OT) and on-call time for resources and provide an approval and auditing framework accessible by both internal management and their customer. Additionally, Cask built a reconciliation tool that will identify missed billing opportunities and eliminate improper billing to the customer for unauthorized OT and standby time. Reconciliation is run after each week’s time is reported and reconciliation tasks are then assigned to any manager who has potential findings against planned vs. actual for their direct reports.

Many constituent requests are in support of uses that must be extensively reviewed by Subject Matter Experts for impacts to standard public health and safety measures and general facilities management practices among other constraints prior to being authorized. The system outputs complex PDF documents that are then stored in the customer’s official system of record.

A customer required a capability that could manage and tie resources of multiple partners and contractors to manage, mobilize, and track emergency response resources in one easy-to-use platform.

This direct end-user interaction reduced the number of handoffs between the person identifying the issue/need and the development team working to resolve it. This collaboration allowed the team to synthesize the user research to identify issues and enhancements in order to develop, test, and deploy the fixes and enhancements quickly in an Agile DevOps cycle of continuous exploration, integration, and deployment. Furthermore, Cask leveraged design thinking for customer-centered design by analyzing user research and collaborating with users to develop personas and empathy maps, as well as conduct usability testing.

The Contractor Onboarding process encompasses all of the processes and communications that are involved in hiring/onboarding a new contractor.

The applicant will use this username and password to access their account, complete the documents in the Welcome Package/Investigation Pack, then acquire from the Onboarding POC all accounts and investigative reporting necessary to obtain equipment, network and building access, and complete onboarding for a contractor.
