TasWater : Using Microsoft 365 for business transformation

TasWater has implemented a Virtual Workplace Program (VWP) consisting of three interlocking projects covering a new SharePoint intranet, knowledge and collaboration, and document & records management. The VWP is based on Microsoft 365 technologies and has been delivered with a user-centric approach.

Notable features include a refreshed intranet, an employee onboarding site for pre-hires, and a Knowledge Hub for technical information. TasWater has also improved and automated various business processes using PowerApps, Power Automate and SharePoint lists.

Apps include a weights calculator to support health & safety, employee onboarding workflow, project space creation and enabling field workers to submit data from mobile devices while working out in the field.
