Significant time saved by finance team  as able to access corporate data directly


DS Smith plc is a leading British-based international packaging business. It is headquartered in London and is a constituent of the FTSE 250 index.


The problem

DS Smith needed a global solution that allowed secure 24/7 access to company entity data, such as their Intellectual Property register. In order to improve speed of access and accuracy, other departments had to access areas of the new system so administrators had to have the ability to set read-only rights to individual users.


Our solution

After considering various other solutions, DS Smith chose Blueprint OneWorld for its functionality and customisation options. Blueprint OneWorld enables per-user access rights, giving the Blueprint OneWorld administrators complete control. The added feature of a full audit trail ensures accountability and visibility, allowing other departments to securely access corporate data directly.


The outcome

DS Smith are now taking advantage of the flexibility Blueprint OneWorld offers to manage their specific governance and compliance needs. Significant time has been saved by their finance teams as they can now access corporate data, such as account information and their Intellectual Property register, directly.


“Blueprint OneWorld is driven around the specific needs of the users rather than the needs of the software.”
