Success Story


Alberta's leading energy provider.

Embracing SaaS: A strategic migration from Sharepoint to Sitecore XM Cloud.

Meet ENMAX 👋

Say hello to ENMAX: a leader in the energy sector of Alberta, Canada. Headquartered in Calgary, ENMAX operates across the entire energy value chain and powers the potential of people, businesses, and communities across the province.

Beyond supplying electricity and energy services, ENMAX has become a staple in the day-to-day and evolving energy needs of Albertans. However, their previous Sharepoint website could no longer scale with their brand growth. ENMAX needed a platform that aligned with the company's commitment to harnessing the latest and greatest in technology to enhance its digital presence and customer engagement.

The Challenge ⛰️

As one of Alberta's leading energy providers, ENMAX faced a pivotal challenge: their website, a crucial touchpoint for interacting with a dynamic customer base, was anchored in an outdated SharePoint infrastructure. This platform significantly hindered their ability to offer a seamless digital experience and provided further limitations, like:

  • Shortage of self-serve options for limited customer experience.
  • A rigid CMS stifled the brand's potential for growth and evolution.
  • Marketers lacked the autonomy and agility necessary to launch and manage campaigns effectively.
