One of BAT's corporate goals is to bring its product innovations to market more rapidly, and having a 'single source of the truth' is a vital requirement in order to reach that goal.
Faced with the internal IT challenge of providing such a service to its partners, BAT turned to Intralinks for a cloud-based solution to collaborate externally.
“Intralinks' cloud-based document management platform is quick-to-deploy, scalable, and functionally rich,” said Gary Fallon, head of innovation technology, marketing futures at British American Tobacco. “With Intralinks' project management and support capabilities, the solution was up and running in less than four weeks and globally in use on the first project.”
Intralinks Connect is an enterprise-grade offering that enables any employee, within or outside an organization, to share content and collaborate with business partners beyond the firewall while ensuring adherence to corporate control, security, and compliance requirements. Using a single, scalable solution, BAT can manage data more efficiently allowing all parties to work faster while never compromising security.
“We are delighted that BAT has selected Intralinks to help bring their product innovations to market,” said Derek Flynn, managing director and senior vice president, Sales, EMEA of Intralinks. “We are proud to join together multiple parties across various territories and time zones within and beyond the BAT firewall whilst retaining the necessary security and control.”
