Background

With the onset of deregulation or privatisation, the competitive landscape of the utility sector has changed significantly in the last few years. Many organizations have faced increased regulatory demands to improve efficiency and reduce costs in order to hit stakeholder and shareholder targets. As a result, many organisations in the sector are seeking to improve information management in order to help address these challenges. The utility industry has mainly to deal with projects facing maintenance and extension work. This goes along with lots of old documentation which has to be considered for new projects. In order to integrate old documents into a new product structure, new data and surveys have to be generated. Utility companies generate a wide range of document types including procedures, system descriptions, reports and reference materials, and these must be distributed both internally and externally across a supply chain that can extend to many thousands of users who all need to access key pieces of information.

The best way to preclude or alleviate these workflow issues if they have already had a noticeable effect on both the quality and quantity of work, is to commit to document management, business process management and project collaboration solutions: software and web-based platforms that can either build upon or replace existing workplace systems, and enhance efficiency and compliance without sacrificing ease-of-use.
