Case Study: Luck Stone
Aggregate Supplier Enhances Internal Community, Cuts Costs $160,000 Yearly
"Cross-business-unit projects are among our largest and most profitable, so the effective cross-business-unit collaboration we are achieving with our intranet gives us a powerful advantage."
- Trevor Blanning, Network Manager, Luck Stone
Since its founding more than 85 years ago, Richmond, Virginia based Luck Stone has achieved and maintained success not only by providing reliable aggregate products and services, but also by promoting a strong sense of community within the company. To build and maintain that sense of community among 800 employees in four business units and 39 locations, the company deployed an intranet twice but to no avail because of content-management problems. Then, working with Microsoft National Systems Integrator Partner Ironworks, Luck Stone learned about Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 and decided to deploy a new intranet based on that platform. Now, employees access documents in seconds instead of minutes and collaborate more effectively, and the company is saving up to U.S.$160,000 yearly in IT costs and enhancing the culture of community that is central to the Luck Stone tradition.
