Professional services and consulting firm Capgemini has deployed Microsoft Dynamics 365 to charity Big Brothers Big Sisters Australia on a pro-bono basis.
The multinational firm expects the implementation will help Big Brothers Big Sisters gain efficiencies and free up resources to allow staff to “focus where it matters”.
“This recent implementation by Capgemini will build capacity in our operations," Big Brothers Big Sisters Australia chief executive Sarah Downie said.
The new Microsoft solution implemented by Capgemini will increase efficiencies right across our entire team with the online management of volunteers, mentoring matches and the facilitation of the donor support.”
“Our objective is to provide mentoring services to support even more vulnerable young people in need of a positive role model and reduce waiting lists. The new platform developed by Capgemini will provide an excellent foundation to scale our operations more effectively.”
The deployment was completed across 14 weeks and included end-user training, deployment and post-deployment support where needed.
Big Brothers Big Sisters provides one-to-one mentoring programs for young people aged between 7 and 17, particularly focused on those feeling socially and emotionally isolated.
Capgemini stated that it hoped the implementation would enable more young Australians to have the opportunity to realise their full potential.
“We are thrilled to be working with Big Brothers Big Sisters to help inspire positive change in the young people of Australia by contributing our talent and skills to this initiative,” Capgemini Asia-Pacific head of human resources Anne McGirr said.
McGirr said IT consultant aimed to improve the lives of a million people by 2020 with projects similar to their deployment with Big Brothers Big Sisters as part of its corporate responsibility and sustainability program.
