Case Study: La-Z-Boy Collaborates with ExCM and SharePoint

La-Z-Boy has numerous business partners, vendors and licensees, and sharing information with organizations outside the company had become a major issue. Because SharePoint out-of-the-box only allows administrators to create user accounts and assign security roles, the IT department was faced with making business decisions about what information to make accessible to outside parties in critical areas such as intellectual property.

ExCM enabled La-Z-Boy to shift the burden from IT to line-of-business employees with expertise in specific areas who know what is appropriate to share with external parties, and let them manage the account-creation process.
