Electricity North West power up their bid writing thanks to Ideagen
Maintaining an electricity supply across a network that includes 13,000km of overhead power lines and more than 44,000km of underground electricity cables is no easy task – and something Electricity North West couldn’t do without its network of external partners. In the same way power needs to flow through the electricity network, it’s essential for information to flow easily between all parties to ensure a smooth and consistent service.
Without a dedicated system in place, Electricity North West made best use of patching together different applications. They used SharePoint internally, but that didn’t work with external partners which meant they had to rely on email and data transfer programmes. However, this didn’t provide one central location for everyone to edit documents with full version control – which resulted in the team having to manually manage everyone’s amendments which was difficult and inefficient. They needed a solution that would be the conductor for collaboration and create positive charges to power the north west.
Huddle has been an invaluable addition to our team. The time it has saved compared to our previous, more manual processes has made a real impact on the way we work. Huddle plays a key role in maintaining excellent relationships with our external partners, they are equally as complimentary about Huddle and enjoy using it just as much as we do.
