The decision to go with EUM turned out to be a success with Lassonde Industries and their external vendors being pleased with the results. SharePoint out of the box was “more of a container to aggregate all pages and documents”. The need to implement EUM was based on tools that would offer control over external users, such as user management paired with a friendly user login interface. EUM alleviated the pain of internal users having to type in their credentials by leveraging the EUM automatic login feature. EUM also gave Lassonde the capability to seamlessly create a username and password for each of their external user accounts. After one month of having EUM go live, Lassonde had the capability to create a new user using the client’s own email address. Using EUM, Lassonde was able to easily connect and manage all documents related to food safety and risks managements from a single platform. EUM gives Lassonde control over ingredient specification by driving suppliers to put documents into their internal system. Lassonde is then able to approve or reject these documents and manage the overall transformation of raw materials. EUM continues to present Lassonde with “big win” business results by delivering a business solution that manages the execution of time-sensitive documents in a secure environment with external vendors.
