Intertape Polymer Group Inc. (IPG®) is a publicly traded company that is a leader in the packaging and adhesive products industry. The company produces a broad range of products for both the consumer and industrial marketplace including aerospace, automotive, building & construction, food processing, pharmaceuticals, marine, among many others.
IPG’s broad product range generates a plethora of sales literature and sales-related documents. Various departments continually update these materials with new content. They are stored throughout the company’s corporate website, as well as within both Microsoft SharePoint 2007 and 2010 intranet sites.
The Challenge: Sync SharePoint to Box
To keep the latest versions on their laptops, each rep has to manually browse a large number of company website and intranet pages, manually assess if its current, then download each one individually. However, busy salespeople are often unaware of changes which sometimes resulted in customers receiving outdated technical specifications or inaccurate promotional and pricing information. Thus Tony Fowlkes, IPG’s IT Project Manager became responsible for finding a way to put and keep the very latest documents in the hands of the sales reps—no matter what the file type or origin throughout the company.
