During the combining project, Medisize realized a need for centralized information storage to facilitate collaboration between Medisize entities globally. After a serious evaluation of different options, Medisize found Webforum, whose online service Teamwork suited their needs for a practical, easy-to-use and secure workspace perfectly.
Initially it was used as a global intranet, but Webforum soon became a way to handle document management between the companies. People are informed directly when there is new documentation thanks to the built-in group e-mail function with links to documents.
Medisize then also started to look at Webforum Project, which in addition to the Teamwork functionality also handles project planning, time reporting and follow up. The functionality in Project allowed Medisize to get control over all cross-location projects and store all project information, including time reports, in one place rather than each location running its own system.
Lately, Medisize has started to handle customer projects in the solution. The customers are invited to a workspace where all project documentation can be shared. With the built-in version control, all parties can be assured that they are always working with the latest information.
Also the Medisize Board has its own workspace. That way the board can handle all the board documentation without risking that the information is stored on local laptops or is sent through unsecured mail.
“Medisize is an excellent example of how a company working in a regulated business can facilitate and improve its internal and external communication as well as project management without investing heavily in system development” says Fredrik Adolfsson, partner responsible at Webforum. Medisize now has around 250 users of Webforum.
