CORIX is a fully integrated provider of utility infrastructure services and systems for water, wastewater, and sustainable energy. Headquartered in Vancouver, BC, and Wauwatosa, WI, CORIX has over 600 employees spread across multiple locations in North America. CORIX needed a scalable solution to fix communication issues and improve organizational performance in the process.


With a team and resources spread across several locations, Corix was encountering challenges with communication and collaboration between employees, especially after new hires, mergers, and acquisitions.

Their existing corporate intranet was managed by central webmasters and contained only information from head office -resulting in ineffective and siloed information sharing. Additionally, they had been using email and file sharing, but the information was often repeated which desensitized staff to the information.

To ensure a successful SharePoint implementation, Softlanding provided a five-phase approach: Envisioning, Planning, Building, Stabilization & Deployment, and Support.

To drive value for individuals and the organization, the team canvassed all business lines to find out what information should be shared across all departments.

For Adoption & Success, Softlanding launched the “People Finder” project, which required employees to add their information so that everyone knew more about their coworkers.

Softlanding created publishing sites, so each department could gain visibility across the organization, distribute workloads more efficiently, and update their content according to corporate guidelines.
