iDistrict

iDistrict is a job and resource planning business system for allocating teams, resources, tools, people and technology around the world. As part of a long-term relationship with this large oilfield services client, HexaGroup was tasked to assist with the development of the new iDistrict user interface, creating over 100 screen applications, conducting user testing to ensure the interface was user-friendly, performed entire presentation layer implementation and implemented the new user interface. HexaGroup integrated with the client team and worked together for 8-12 months to successfully implement the new application.

Because HexaGroup specializes in change management and related communications, the team was commissioned for a second aspect of the project. HexaGroup developed communications that conveyed that the new version of iDistrict was a big change, was going to be successful, and would resolve most of the known issues around usability and speed that had historically rendered this tool ineffective. Addressing these change management points, HexaGroup created a series of videos around the functionality of iDistrict, promoting the benefits of the new tool through light and interesting core vignettes. Each 20-second vignette addressed one benefit of the tool, such as its beauty and speed, while an all-encompassing video promoted the overall improvements of the tool.
