Shared Services Case Study

Case StudyImagine the challenges of managing over 100 convenience stores with over 1500 employees and growing – that is what Petrogas Global Limited, trading as Applegreen does every day in the beautiful country of Ireland.

Managing all of the various store assets is quite an undertaking.  Everyday equipment, including cash registers, fuel pumps and coffee machines, needs to be in good working order to serve customers.  Employees must be trained and kept abreast of current company
information, and it is essential that corporate management is alert to recurring or problem
issues in each store.   Initially purchasing the software for IT, the Novo software was later
implemented as a powerful tracking solution across multiple departments.

consolidating processes and saving money.

Citizen Request Management

City of Philadelphia Neighborhood Liason Program
pdf5All municipalities have to deal with problems such as sidewalk repairs, graffiti, or other disrepair issues. It is challenging for city workers to always be aware of these troubles as they arise, and can be difficult for citizens to know just who to call to make a report.

The city of Philadelphia knew that if they could make it easier for the citizens to dialogue with them, they could empower citizens to help make their neighborhoods a better place for all. Thus began the idea for the “Neighborhood Liaison Program” as part of their
Philly 311 call service.
