With OnePlan, Equitable Bank improved the project intake process by integrating SharePoint using OneConnect. This provided an inexpensive intake environment using SharePoint and automated connectivity to OnePlan for prioritization. OnePlan also met the customer’s requirement for RAID integration by implementing OneConnect to JIRA. OnePlan helped Equitable Bank eliminate the proliferation of emailed spreadsheets containing resourcing and financial information, centralizing this in OnePlan.
