Jay Bahel, former CIO of Brunswick New Technologies, has been using WebGUI in his unit for the past four years. When searching for a content management system, Jay knew that flexibility and adaptability were key factors. They were searching for a product that could keep up to their global community’s constant growth and evolution. WebGUI has been able to adapt and rise to that task in every way.
On a daily basis, at least half of the company’s 800 employees utilize the site’s 30 applications, with nearly 95% of the employees making use of it each month. Particularly useful are the workflow and database functions, as well as the general ease of use WebGUI offers. The Intranet is used for virtually all communication needs within the organization including employee contacts, time zone applications, tuition reimbursements, leave request systems, employee notifications, human resource applications and general content management. According to Jay Bahel, “WebGUI is firmly embedded in the business process,” at Brunswick New Technologies.
Adding to WebGUI’s presence in the organization is the firm foundation of trust Brunswick New Technologies has been able to establish with Plain Black. In addition to support, Brunswick New Technologies has taken advantage of virtually every professional service Plain Black offers. Jay Bahel considers Plain Black a strategic business partner, not just a service provider. Jay states that with Plain Black, “there’s no doubt that you will achieve business success. There’s just no doubt about it. They match the business process, so they yield success 100%. Guaranteed.”
