What we do

allfields provide advice and best practice implementation consultancy services for organisations looking to deploy new, change or upgrade their ECMS. 

How we can help

Content Management Systems can be called ECMS, EDRMS or Document Management Systems. In Public Sector some clients implement from the New Zealand, AOG ECMaaS offering, OpenText®, SharePoint® or Oracle®. Other clients purchase or install cloud based or on premises solutions, for example SharePoint®, Objective®, or pure cloud such as Box®.

Our team at allfields can step clients through all stages of the implementation, without actually selling the system itself. We will push the vendor to deliver the very best system possible to your organisation. We are highly experienced in Content Management Systems, we know all the good an all the bad they offer. First, and foremost we consider the people side of the adoption. No investment is worthwhile if your organisation's people do not embrace the technology.

  • Working with key stakeholders to develop a strong business case and commitment for change.
  • Design the Information Architecture (file structure) based on best practise and fit for both your organisation and chosen system.
  • Project Managing the implementation (bridging between yourselves and the vendor).
  • Change Managing the implementation (getting the whole organisation on board – see our section dedicated to Change management).
  • Writing the Test Plan, identifying success then testing the build, unit testing and system.
  • System administration, back end system administration for SharePoint® implementations.
  • Migration strategies – documenting the strategy, what success looks like and managing the migration approach.
  • Designing the Education and Training Strategy (see our section on training).
  • Documenting business process change, and preparing the organisation for the stage of Business as usual.
