WINNER, Most Innovative Intranet: LaSalle College
- Industry: Education
- Region: Montreal, Quebec (locations worldwide)
- Employees: 1,700
- Intranet Name: AGORA
With 120 full time teachers completing paid Research and Development projects, managing the projects, hours and approvals through Excel took countless hours. Using a ThoughtFarmer customization, LaSalle now tracks all of their hours throughout the year using AGORA. This system allows teachers to enter their project’s title, description, amount of hours and collaborators into a personalized page under their program. This system also allows LaSalle to summarize all hours completed by teachers in eight different categories.
For the Academic Dean and Program Directorate, it is easy to track the completion of projects. With one click an Excel report is generated that can target a specific teacher, program or the whole college. This system ensures an efficient management of the Research and Development budget. Because of LaSalle’s innovative tracking system and the results it garnered, they are the winner of the Most Innovative Intranet for 2015!
The ThoughtFarmer customization allows LaSalle to summarize all R&D projects by teacher, program and category.
