“Sara has brought a healthy combination of information management skills and strong governance to her consulting assignment at Polson Higgs. These skills and experience combined with her understanding of the capability of Microsoft SharePoint continue to provide added value to our understanding and practice of information management in the 21st century” Shane Boyle, IT Manager
Polson Higgs is a firm of Business Advisors and Chartered Accountants based in Dunedin, with around 60 permanent staff.
In 2014 Polson Higgs’ IT Manager asked Elucidate to undertake a review of PH’s Microsoft SharePoint environment. Polson Higgs had been using SharePoint for document management and Intranet for a couple of years and wanted an independent review to assess the effectiveness of their adoption and use of SharePoint. Elucidate undertook this review and subsequently recommended some improvements including new information management governance structures and processes. Sara was then asked by the Polson Higgs Executive Management Team to implement Elucidate’s recommendations, and chair the newly established SharePoint and Information Management Group. Since then, Sara has continually encouraged and facilitated PH people to be collaborative owners of SharePoint as a fundamental platform for PH operations.
Elucidate has now worked successfully with Polson Higgs for over 2 years, and continues to assist PH to strengthen its maturity in approaching information management as a key ingredient for its success.
