Projects - reducing costs

savings at Norfolk County

Market: Government

We’ve been collaborating with Norfolk County Sheriffs Office since 1996 when we produced their very first Inmate Orientation Video so every inmate would receive the same consistent message in their native language [English or Spanish] and the facility limits its liability.  We even produced an award-winning televised documentary here entitled “Correcting Our Ways”.  Today we continue to produce their videos, provide onsite IT support, web maintenance, website hosting and writing technical RFP’s.  Most recently we have been hired to help them streamline their vendor contracts and operations for greater efficiency and cost savings.

Goals: improve efficiency, limit liability, increase productivity, consistency and deliver cost savings

efficiency and savings at Able911

Market: Industrial

Able Restoration’s reputation as a premium-quality restoration company has grown over the course of 10 years.  Today, they are one of the largest, most respected independent restoration companies in Massachusetts.  They needed a ::play:: solution for tracking their equipment, jobs and personnel. They also needed an electronic dispatch board and they needed it fast.  In less than 6 months they were up and running with the Able Restoration InfoCenter.  One of our favorite clients to collaborate as they worked closely and rapidly with u at every turn.

greater transparency at Biogen Idec

Market: life sciences

Founded in 1978, Biogen Idec Pharmaceuticals is a global leader in the discovery, development, manufacturing, and commercialization of innovative therapies. Patients in more than 90 countries benefit from Biogen Idec’s products. In 2008, Biogen Idec’s total revenues grew 29 percent to $4.1 billion and the coall volume inside their IT department skyrocketed created delayed responses.  Committed to excellence for its employees, Biogen Idec quickly began improvements but they needed a way to rally the patience and support of 4500 employees in 5 countries .  After 3  informal user meet-ups (with food of course), the ::play:: team designed one simple phrase “tiny victories for success” marking each seemingly small and possibly insignificant change as a tiny victory for ultimate progress.  Now instead of everyone wondering where’s the progress, they can easily see Biogen Idec is on tiny victory #45.
