The Challenge

At STAR Group, the team perform a lot of tasks manually and wanted to automate and improve these processes. It made sense to start with an intranet, which would become their central information and communication hub, connecting current and future software they have in the business. They also embarked on a website redesign. Their audience is generally tech-savvy but time poor, so they looked at ways for the website to be easier to use and navigate. It had to be modern, informative and mobile responsive.  Star Group chose Elcom to design and build their new website, intranet and LMS.

The Solution

The STAR Group website now has a new modern and uncluttered look and feel. It is easy to navigate and mobile responsive. Given the large number of projects shown on the website, they use Elcom’s meta tagging feature to classify projects by section, service, region and status. This lets visitors drill down to view the most relevant projects for their needs.

The power of the platform is how user friendly it is for administrators and publishers. They launched the intranet recently and they've already seeing a lot of quick wins around speeding up existing processes. They're using forms and workflows as a tool to automate operations around HR, financial requests and administration. They’re easy to set up, are knocking down the number of steps in each process, and reducing the time to process forms.

Since STAR Group work in a highly regulated industry, they’re really excited about improving and automating both the staff training and incident tracking processes. With the Elcom Learning Management System (LMS), they can bring the many training programs they have online, making it much more efficient and easier to manage, deploy and report on. It’ll go a long way in improving their induction and internal training processes.

What's inside

Digital Asset Management, 21st-Century Style

If content is king, then managing content is definitely queen. That’s why digital asset management is at the heart of Elcom’s Intranet software. All your documents, images, content (and even style sheets) are version controlled and simple to manage. Libraries allow lightning-quick searches and filtering on all kinds of criteria.

Get People Talking and Your Business Moving

Maintain a vibrant, social-driven heartbeat in your organisation. Elcom’s Intranet software incorporates a social layer that allows social profiles, real-time status updates, commenting and interaction on blogs and other content, and much more - all to make things easy (and a little fun) for your people.

Automate Your Forms and Workflows

Managing forms and approving content can be a time-consuming exercise. Use a drag and drop interface to quickly design detailed forms. Automate all your approvals by setting up workflows that handle serial or parallel processes with ease, and comes with a powerful rules engine to adapt and branch workflows based on the submitting user and other details.


Harness the Power of Your Information

Without information, everything stops. Help your people find what they need in seconds with real-time search tools. Search on keywords, taxonomy or build pre-defined queries for common searches. For departments or subsidiaries, create personalised views to make common searches as simple as “click-click-found”.

People Powered Publishing

Elcom is designed to be used by non-technical publishers. Users can edit content directly through the front-end with inline editing, which keeps the context for the user as they make updates. Combine this with Elcom's dynamic widgets to automatically display this new content anywhere throughout your site in aggregated blog, event, news and other related feeds.

Harness the “Amazon Effect” To Draw A Crowd

Amazon’s success has put personalisation in the spotlight. With Elcom, you can take advantage of powerful features such as tags and categories, multilingual capability, membership management and content personalisation to deliver a truly personal experience for your customers, whether they’re on your website or getting your emails.
