In Wellington, the capital of New Zealand, the City Council has adopted Yonix to enhance productivity and team efficiency.
The City Council often takes on projects with a large number of requirements. As a result, handling requirements can be a daunting task, especially when teams are spread out over several locations and specifications are often changing.
The City Council has historically used Microsoft Word and IBM DOORS as tools for requirements activities. The interface of these tools did not support a collaborative way of sharing and tracking changes. As a result time was often wasted generating documents, making formatting changes and controlling different versions.
We chose Yonix because it is web-based and collaborative so you can share things really easily. Plus it can export to Word really well to for people who want to see paper based versions. The thing that I like about Yonix is the ability to put in context around the requirements. Using the narrative sections within Yonix documents, we are able to provide context and background information to specific requirements. Using Yonix as a repository, we are able to attach relevant documents, diagrams and files which support requirements.
“The stand out features are Yonix documents and the output to Word; very professional, very easy to do and very quick.” ##### Kate Fox | Senior Business Analyst,
Yonix is definitively more efficient in document generation - I love the interface to Word, and just being able to push a button and generate professional requirements documents is a very powerful function. We can also upload a template into Yonix to start a project using a standardized approach from pervious projects. It’s very flexible, I can use it for all my projects. It’s a great tool for any document that uses requirements.
