The FINANCIAL — On July 28 Oracle announced that professional services firm and Gold-level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), TekStream Solutions, has adopted company-wide secure file sharing and content collaboration and reduced project setup costs by 30 percent using Oracle Documents Cloud Service.
For its consulting services, TekStream needed an efficient and scalable solution for accessing, sharing, and collaborating on documents with its consultants and customers. The firm wanted to be able to quickly and cost-effectively set up content collaboration instances to support new clients and IT projects, while safeguarding sensitive client content and providing superior version management, content segregation, and document accuracy.
“As a business consulting and technology implementation organization, we very carefully consider our IT purchases on behalf of both our company and the value they can deliver to our clients,” said Judd Robins, executive vice president, Consulting Services, TekStream Solutions. “Oracle Documents Cloud Service delivered the results we were looking for without adding complexity to our environment by introducing a new information silo. The service is intuitive, easy-to-use and highly scalable, and allows our consultants to share and access files anytime from anywhere, even on mobile devices, and drive effective project collaboration with our clients.”
Oracle Documents Cloud also supports document mobility, social collaboration and version control, which is designed to eliminate one-off emails that can increase inefficiency by causing confusion and errors. As a result, TekStream and its clients have been able to increase productivity and focus on revenue-generating initiatives, according to TekStream.
By deploying Oracle Documents Cloud, TekStream was able to avoid the typical chaos around project management – 20 to 30 people collaborating over, on average, 30-50 documents often with multiple versions, and where the collaboration and document sharing is happening over a 1000+ emails going back and forth. With Oracle Documents Cloud Service, TekStream has already reduced project administration costs by 30 percent and accelerated client and project onboarding, reduced administrative overhead, and optimized the use of clients’ budgets for core projects. Both TekStream and its clients now have an easy-to-use, secure and flexible platform that enables them to share, access and store files quickly and set up file systems to meet their unique content collaboration needs, as well as integrate content with other applications as necessary.
Additionally, TekStream can now develop tailored security taxonomies for each instance of Oracle Documents Cloud. This helps ensure that all documents remain secure, and its enterprise file synch capabilities allow TekStream to efficiently and accurately manage dozens of documents and multiple versions for each IT services project. As a result of the implementation, TekStream now has a centralized repository for contracts, project workflows, IT architectures, and many other mission-critical documents securely segmented by client project.
Built for the enterprise with robust security, application and business process integrations, Oracle Documents Cloud enables users to easily store business content in the cloud, sync with enterprise content, access it securely from anywhere via desktop, web or mobile devices, and share and collaborate on it with colleagues, partners, and customers in real time. Oracle Documents Cloud is part of the Oracle Cloud Platform, a comprehensive, integrated suite of services that make it easier for developers, IT professionals, and business users to build, extend and integrate cloud applications.
