Managing a global programme across 100+ countries is a challenging task! Thanks to the amazingly generous pro-bono support of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Provider Barhead, coupled with a new technical partnership with Oakton, tracking our global programme is becoming much easier. iRAP’s Programme Management System (PRM) will manage our individual and organisation champions, metrics, training events, projects, partnership agreements and advocacy and road upgrade activities.
What’s more, FedEx is helping us take the benefits to the world! Doing what they do so well – “connecting people and possibilities around the world” – FedEx is generously sponsoring the associated 5-Star Global Connections Initiative. The Initiative will leverage iRAP and its partners globally to maximise how the PRM and a Partner Portal are used to connect, track and enable RAP stakeholders and activities world-wide to save lives and serious injuries on 3-star or better roads. The company’s professionalism in serving 220 countries and territories that connect 99% of the world’s GDP; delivering more than 15 million shipments on average a day with over 180,000 motorized vehicles (in addition to more than 680 aircraft), being highly valued by customers and one of the top 100 best places to work are just some of the traits that will help make the Global Connections Initiative a success.
The iRAP Global Connections Initiative, sponsored by FedEx, is a 3-year project that will run from 2019 to 2022. Several sprints of work have been completed on the PRM and enhancements will continue over time leading to the launch of a connected Partner Portal to share insights. A Global Connections Strategy is also being shaped that will connect partners around the world to share resources, expertise and results, target investment, foster community unity and magnify the impact of success for the benefit of all.
iRAP’s Partner Management System and Portal would not be possible without the generous financial and pro-bono support of FedEx, Barhead, Oakton and Roadway Safety Foundation. Their incredible support is helping us achieve 5-star global programme management and, most importantly, our vision for a world free of high risk roads.
