Global Express turned to Liferay to implement their new intranet solution, having leveraged Liferay technology for more than five years through their digital self-service and ordering platform. Global Express told the Liferay team the intranet had to be live within four weeks, so Liferay recommended a Liferay DXP Cloud-hosted platform, which would enable fast deployment and hands-off maintenance.
With the aid of Liferay Professional Services, one-on-one internal training, and Liferay University, the Global Express team got the freshly-branded intranet up and running on time.
The intranet, called GEConnect, was so successful that the Global Express team leveraged Liferay to create another important solution: a public website that would serve customers and parcel receivers. As the Head of IT, Grant Pattison, put it,
“We were able to … stand up two fundamental platforms for the new company inside a couple months using the same team and the same infrastructure and the same approach.”
