An IBM Workplace Services Express story...

Designed in August last year and going live in December, Wattyl has become one of the first companies in the world to implement IBM's Workplace Services Express collaboration platform, according to IBM.

"We love Workplace's flexibility," Hough said. "It has an office document editor and e-mail workplace functionality. Workplace really refines what they get - the right document and version. Also, staff log on to the portal and see task lists and knowledge [references]."

Currently being trialled on a limited basis, the portal will be extended over all 850 staff by August. ...

"The ROI for the project is expected to be a couple of years.  The savings are in a more flexible and efficient organization. For example, we spend about $250,000 a year on paper and ink so if we can get that down by 20 percent by using [Web] forms for everything then that's a $40,000 per year saving."
