Penske Transport Group (MTU Detroit Diesel Australia recent aquisition) is a leading distributor of diesel and gas engines and power systems across the most dynamic on and off-highway markers in Australia, for over 60 years. They constitute of brands like MTU, Detroit Diesel, Mercedes-Benz, MTU Onsite Energy, Allison Transmission and Kohler Power Systems.  With 19 physical branches and over 700 staff across Australia.

PTG was looking to have an internal marketing portal built and branded with SharePoint as the platform. After a number of consultations with Evocate, it was decided to extend the scope to include building an intranet, an extranet (for collaboration with partners) and a document management  system to replace the company wide shared drives (Consisting 17 TB of files). The benefit to the business was that by moving to SharePoint 2013 for all 3 functions, they would no longer be reliant on a complex array of file shares and other related infrastructure.

Evocate set up a Large High Availably SharePoint 2013 farm with constituted of 8 servers. SQL 2012 high availability groups are in place to ensure Database redundancy. Multiple front ends, Search components and application servers are in place to ensure application redundancy. With 4 distributed caches in play, high performance is a norm.  Evocate was involved from the conceptualisation stage all the way to final rollout and implementation. This project included Custom code, Custom SharePoint 2013 branding, workshopping requirements,  Solution and information architecture design, Infrastructure planning, Farm setup and configuration, Administrator training and knowledge transfer and migration of existing files to the DMS
