Plante Moran

Project Description:
Plante Moran PLLC, a public accounting and business advisory firms, has built a digital collaboration platform that blends cloud, mobile and social technologies to serve as the foundation for the company's digital workplace. The digital platform, called KnowledgeShare, enables the geographically dispersed staff to feel engaged and part of a team even when they're working virtually. The KnowledgeShare intranet platform lets users tailor their own experiences in the context of the greater organization. KnowledgeShare brings together over 10 TB of rich content from the entire organization and makes it readily available for staff to leverage. It's the primary digital platform for Plante Moran staff to engage with leadership and each other, provide insight, share best practices, find experts across the firm and connect staff wherever they are. KnowledgeShare has enabled Plante Moran to reduce the time it takes to find experts and content by 50 percent, increase staff engagement 100 percent and reduce annual technology spend by $600,000.
