This paper describes an extranet system implemented for a major UK bank to permit the management of many thousand annual branch 'upgrade' projects by the bank's property services division. The system has been developed to provide intuitive use by a user community of project managers, design consultants and contractors. The system differs from traditional hosted extranet services in that it has been developed specifically to address the complex issues of rapid programme management. It provides long term confidence to the bank by guaranteeing their ownership of the system and data. The system also retains the look and feel of bank systems to give clear brand identity. Users securely access the system and navigate within it by identifying a project, viewing programme information and accessing data folders.
