In 2017, we began conversations with Mitaanjigamiing First Nation on the value of a centralized information system to support the community through their busy day-to-day. Throughout the following years, we worked on small-scale projects aimed at digitizing specific department files within the organization, which led to the easier retrieval of information and more effective internal processes for the team.

In 2022, we stepped up our game and tackled a large-scale project for MFN that created an organization-wide digital file management system, in addition to setting up Microsoft 365 for more streamlined communications and everyday processes. While the results of this work can be a little difficult to navigate during mid-transition, they undoubtably bring invaluable benefits to the organization. One of the most notable benefits is the ability to access files from anywhere, at any time, just by having an internet connection. Cloud-based networks also have robust protection measures for important files, they are cost-effective when you consider the fees associated with hardware and infrastructure maintenance, and they protect your files from physical damage. We’re so glad MFN trusted us with this project, and we look forward to taking on more of this vital work in other organizations.
