BG Group’s LMS implementation was an extension of many existing HR and Intranet tools that already had account creation, user management, and seamless access in place. The addition of a new 3rd party system brought about the potential for another set of user-credentials and additional, redundant, management tasks around account creation and distribution. BG needed a fully integrated process that would work within their existing structure.
With collaboration from BG, KMi helped to develop a fully integrated process for both creating and managing user accounts as well as providing a seamless login experience. Secure WebServices are used that BG calls on-demand to push user updates to the LMS so that when a user is created or modified in the local HR system, the changes are immediately applied to the LMS. KMI LMS also had a custom grouping structure created that was “mapped” to the existing HR User Organization structure so that all group-assignments could be automated as well.
BG was able to fully implement KMI’s LMS and deliver a unified, globally accessible platform without having to worry about any additional user management or access issues. BG has also retained the ability to create direct-access accounts so that the implementation can be opened to “External” users as well, getting the best of both worlds as part of the solution.
