BHEL Intranet

The Challenge

Bharat Heavy Electric limited (BHEL) is the largest engineering and manufacturing enterprise in India in the energy-related/infrastructure sector today, with 42,600 highly skilled and committed employees. Microsoft India had engaged Convergent Technologies to develop an Intranet portal for BHEL which can manage dynamic content through an intuitive user interface as well as mass storage capability. The portal also required to target content to various audiences based on different sets of rules, to automatically facilitate intuitive navigation through the website while tailoring the navigation to the individual user and to deliver comprehensive site content management and structural facilities. BHEL also needed a Balance Score Card application involving complex ad-hoc workflows for doing Performance Tracking and Appraisal of employees across departments and levels.

The Solution

The BHEL Employee Intranet and Balanced Score Card was developed on the MOSS (Microsoft Office Share Point Server) 2007 platform. Info Path 2007 was used for designing the forms and workflow designed in Microsoft Office Share Point Designer 2007 and Visual Studio 2008.

The solution had the following functionalities:

  • User Authentication using Windows Authentication.
  • Balanced Score Card using InfoPath Forms
  • Custom Workflows
  • BHEL Department wise Sites and Document Libraries
  • Blogs
