SIG is a Swiss supplier of local energy services. The company serves 250,000 clients in the Canton of Geneva, providing water, gas, electricity and thermal energy. SIG manages waste water, waste recycling and also offers energy and telecommunications services. All SIG activities seek to promote smarter energy consumption, within a framework of on-going sustainable development.
SIG used a document management solution to store documents such as electrical diagrams, installation photos and corporate communication images, but it had reached the end of its shelf-life in terms of software and support. SIG opted for Microsoft SharePoint as their company-wide, business-wide, internet and intranet platform and wanted to concentrate all company documents on this new platform. A migration was therefore needed to export documents from the legacy repository to SharePoint whilst keeping valuable metadata from the existing assets.
