(Reading, UK, 12 June 2018) – Long-standing GroupBC customer upgrades their programme management system in order to manage delivery of major branch transformation and their asset replacement programmes
GroupBC, a leading digital information management solution provider to the built environment, are delighted to announce that Nationwide Building Society will be using BC Enterprise to support delivery of their branch investment and the asset replacement programmes.
Nationwide, the world’s largest building society, were GroupBC’s first enterprise customer back in 1998, when GroupBC developed a custom application for them known in-house as WideXchange. This was designed to encourage collaboration, drive programme wide efficiencies and enhance knowledge management across geographically dispersed teams in order to co-ordinate and accelerate their branch fitout works.
As GroupBC’s platform capability has developed over the years, following multiple roll outs to other leading Retail organisations, Nationwide decided to invest in an upgrade and refresh project of WideXchange. GroupBC’s latest cloud-based solution, BC Enterprise, will enable them to enjoy all the benefits of recent developments such as a simple, user-friendly interface and mobile access, as well as providing a single, secure location to track project progress using live, trustable data.
The new solution, to be known in-house as WideXchange 2.0, is built upon GroupBC’s core document management system, enabling 24/7 access to documents, drawings, project information and processes, reducing the risk of working to out of date information, ensuring the quality and consistency of project delivery, and providing transparency and improved communication across teams.
Gurmeet Grewal, Nationwide Property Business Systems Manager, commented, “We’ve had an excellent relationship with GroupBC over the years and they were first choice when we needed to refresh our system. Although WideXchange has served us well, we were keen to take advantage of the latest functionality to provide project and programme managers with a clear understanding of status and be able to easily track and report on progress. We’re confident we have a solution that can help the team deliver our investment programme”.
Stuart Bell, GroupBC Sales and Marketing Manager said, “After working with Nationwide for the past 20 years we’re delighted that they have chosen to invest in our latest version and their decision supports our belief that our unique offering and focus on customer service is exactly what our customers value.”
