Majedie Case Study

Organisation - Majedie Asset Management
Sector - Financial Services Industry

The Challenge:

As a technology leader, Majedie place particular emphasis on information transparency and accessibility; they engaged Perspicuity’s services to ensure that their systems were continually making the most of Microsoft SharePoint’s new features and capabilities to improve functionality to their clients and staff.

What we've done:

Perspicuity improved the end user experience by replacing Majedie’s legacy system for displaying financial data to clients with AJAX-enabled web parts. Operating within SharePoint and communicating via web services, the web parts retrieve data from Majedie’s SQL Server databases: this data can be refreshed without the need to reload the entire page every time, making it more akin to using a desktop application than to Web browsing.

Integration with Salesforce.com, Majedie’s CRM system, improved both usability and productivity: using Web parts that interact, via a services layer, with the Salesforce API, Majedie clients can now access Salesforce.com without leaving the SharePoint user interface.

The more recent upgrade to Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS) delivered further technology and user benefits following on from the initial upgrade to SharePoint Server 2003.
