Project Outline

The company were in the process of migrating their global desktop infrastructure to Windows 7 / Office 2010 and were experiencing compatibility issues with their VBA tools and templates.
The role

My job was to liaise with the product owners in different areas of the business to implement remedial issues and enhancements to mission critical tools and financial reporting mechanisms. I also provided co-ordinating functions between business users and system architects for all matters related to Office applications to avoid downtime when the system finally went live.

Other reponsibilities included coaching the in-house developer to create robust code using object oriented techniques applied to the VBA language, system documentation and general first line support.
