Six Nations Rugby is the body responsible for organising the Six Nations Rugby championship. It manages a wide range of activities associated with this annual competition.
These activities include team selection, event co-ordination and media management and involve large volumes of data ranging from public information to highly sensitive team and HR data.
PFH Technology Group asked TEKenable to deliver a solution that supported Six Nations Rugby in managing this high-profile competition. We commenced our engagement with a ‘discovery’ phase, understanding how Six Nations Rugby used data across the organisation and mapping the key work flows and work processes involved in the competition. We then built out a SharePoint intranet, using ‘out of the box’ features creating sub sites, libraries and lists where appropriate.
Six Nations Rugby are now successfully using the SharePoint Online site to effectively co-ordinate this annual tournament, facilitating remote and mobile workers across the participating countries. The benefits in terms of more efficient work practices and a collaborative work environment have been significant.
