Greater TEXAS Federal/Aggieland Credit Union has 19 branch offices and Austin is the central HQ. Greater TEXAS Federal Credit Union has been serving central Texas since 1952.

The Challenge

SharePoint is an integral part of GTFCU is used for training support and content management. Their portal had grown organically and was in need of some better navigation and pruning of outdated and unused areas.

What We Did

This was an enhancement project in the sense that it was a migration to 2013 without any urgent timeframe. As a result, this went on for about four months which provided internal staff comfort to learn the new environment without any pressure for cutover.

    • We built a new SharePoint 2013 farm
    • Added several of our key navigation enhancements
    • Re-templated 2010 sites that were using Fab 40 site definitions
    • Reduced the number of retained versions of files and redacted unused sites
    • Using a database attach process, the site was upgraded and placed in data synchronization with the old farm
    • Power user training was conducted to familiarize strategic content managers with the new environment
    • A custom training video was created as part of the cutover process support
    • Cut over to the new environment was achieved with zero business downtime

The Results

The portal was freshened up for better ongoing cultural adoption, was made more manageable, and general enhancements to the training area put in place and now this portal can continue to grow within the boundaries of best practices.
