GE Renewable Energy


  • We assisted GE Renewable Energy in replacing an old Oracle project management system
  • We used out-of-the-box SharePoint and MS Teams functionality from Office 365 to recreate the same functionality

The Challenge

  • Currently using email for project management, which is making it difficult to track meetings, RFIs, and action items
  • Meetings involve sending a “Reply All” email with action items included, but this method is not effective for tracking progress and ensuring tasks are completed
  • Poor reporting and analytics

The Solutions

  • Created SharePoint Data Lists for meetings, meeting issues, RFI log, and action items
  • Workflows automatically move action items to the Action Item Log for tracking and management
  • Notifications and reports to provide visibility on the status of action items for each project and individual user
  • Analytics Dashboards automate reporting busy work
  • Custom Report Templates automatically pull data for Forms and Templates
  • Excel custom Import and Output functionality


  • “The transition to SharePoint and MS Teams was smooth and saved us a lot on software costs. It’s also made tracking meetings, RFIs, and action items easier.”
    – Director of Construction
  • “SharePoint and MS Teams have made managing projects a breeze. The data lists and workflows have helped me stay organized and the notifications and reporting features let me see the status at a glance.”
    – Construction Project Manager
