As the financial year comes to an end, are you feeling like there was more that could have been achieved from your IT wish list, leveraging technology to improve processes, productivity and overall employee experience? There’s still time left to hit some home runs with any remaining budget. Whether you wish to say farewell to frustrating, repetitive manual forms or want to clean up your Microsoft Teams environment, there are several options that won’t break the bank.
Get inspired and tackle one of these projects to finish this financial year with a win. We guarantee your colleagues will love you for it.
Digitise forms or processes
It’s surprising how many organisations are still printing, signing and emailing forms like leave requests, employee expenses and purchase orders. Not only does this create opportunity for manual errors, but it’s time consuming and repetitive for employees.
You can automate forms and create process workflows to send automatic reminders, track approvals and guide users using the capabilities of Microsoft 365.
Single source of truth
While a full document management project might be unrealistic, you can address priority issues like compliance and risk management. Get your most important documents in order by conducting an audit, eliminating superfluous versions and creating a centralised hub where final approved documents can be accessed and managed.

Clean up Microsoft Teams
Has your Teams environment become painful and unruly? You may be suffering from Teams sprawl, with users creating and abandoning Teams and Channels unchecked. Teams sprawl impacts not only the usability of the platform, but has security implications, making it difficult to effectively manage and monitor access. With customised support, WebVine can help get your Teams structure back in shape and minimise further issues.

Training and workshops
Technical skills training is a smart budget allocation option. It will increase productivity, reduce calls to helpdesk and employees will value the opportunity for development. If your organisation is lacking in internal expertise, why not get a third party expert in to help lift your business capabilities. Consider breaking training down by:
1. Application upskilling
Is there a Microsoft 365 application like SharePoint, Teams or the Power Platform that your internal teams are not using effectively? WebVine offer bespoke training that is flexible, practical and interactive.
2. Adoption, governance and other strategic initiatives
While you might have a full digital workplace including a sparkling intranet, perhaps employees are still not as engaged as they could be. WebVine can work with you to shape and execute a strategy to drive user adoption and engagement, delivering return for your technology investment. If your organisation is lacking a proper governance framework, putting valuable data and technology at risk, we can work with you to create and implement best practice plans.
3. Citizen development
With citizen development on the rise, many organisations are looking at their everyday staff to drive new innovation and change.
WebVine provided technical support to Jacqui Peck, an audiologist with Hearing Australia, to help create a comprehensive solution consisting of a central model-driven app that works as a CRM system capturing information in the Microsoft Dataverse database.
How healthy is your intranet? Are people using it? Instead of making your intranet next financial year’s problem, why not get a head start and look at what can be done to optimise it now by:
- Refreshing the design
- Integrating with Teams
- Adding a new module to address a business problem
- Revamping your staff directory
