Coffey International – Scholarship Candidate Management System

Coffey International are experts in engineering, geotechnical, environmental and project management services. A network of 16,000 development professionals working in 400 locations across the globe deliver technical consulting to manage complex risks for the transport, property infrastructure and resources sectors.


Coffey International needed to create a critical system to enable the processing and management of Scholarship Applications from applicants in Laos wanting to obtain scholarships in Australia. Over 650 project staff were reliant on a system that enables applications to be easily processed. Coffey was engaged to run this project on behalf of an Australian Government client.


Coffey engaged WebVine to build a Scholarship Candidate Management System (SCMS).

Deliverables included Consulting, Solution Design and SharePoint Online Development. In addition, training and support was required for the Coffey SharePoint Team in Manila

The solution was in-depth and contained many workflows, forms, complex permissions and reports.

It is hosted on Office365 enabled access by staff from Adelaide, Sydney and Laos.


A complete Office 365 SharePoint solution for managing overseas applicants for sponsorships.

  • Applicants abroad visit their local office where operators ask them questions.
  • The operators enter a profile of the candidate, attaching passport images and other documents.
  • Applicants are searched and selected depending on criteria.
  • Scholarships to Australian Universities and Colleges are offered to successful applicants.

The solution was replicated to provide other services and Coffey staff were trained to manage the solution from Manila.

WebVine continue to support Coffey International by providing enhancements to the system.

“Webvine have provided us with the assurance of expert 365 SharePoint knowledge when we need it. We have found Webvine very responsive and engaged with our operations. They have been enthusiastic, innovative, comprehensive and produce quality outputs. Webvine provide support and advice, and have also completed system development projects that we use to support running Aid and Development projects abroad. They have fostered our staff’s professional development with SharePoint. Coffey International Development Asia Pacific systems team, view Webvine not as a contractor, but a partner.”
