PricewaterhouseCoopers, with multiple locations in India and thousands of employees, was looking for an efficient way to communicate company news, events, articles and policies, on mobile. While the organization already had a SharePoint based intranet to cater to this need, they realized that their employees are constantly on the move, and would need to access the portal data on the smartphone. The client tasked Impiger to build them an Android mobile solution to be the go-to resource for their employees to tap into information and expertise they need on a daily basis.
Impiger designed the User Experience (UX) of the application, keeping in trend with the current Android style guidelines, after realizing that the existing iOS SharePoint intranet application cannot be translated as-is to Android. Unlike regular SharePoint mobile intranets which requires configuration of Microsoft’s SharePoint application, Impiger built a new way to configure SharePoint components and present the data via customizable formats.
Impiger’s unique approach to bring SharePoint intranets to mobile offers several advantages over the regular Microsoft’s default mobile application such as customizable UI, pagination that allows posts to auto load and much more. More custom features as required can be built using Impiger’s framework and it doesn’t need to wait for Microsoft’s team to enhance the default SharePoint application.

- Impiger’s solution now connects all of PricewaterhouseCoopers’ locations and the employees. It has become a trusted place for information that enables teamwork and collaboration.
