PRO Club Microsoft SharePoint Migration Case Study

PRO Club Uses KnowledgeLake to Maximize their Migration to SharePoint Online

The PRO Club in Bellevue, Washington is an award-winning health and wellness club and salon. Founded by renowned cardiovascular surgeon Dr. Mark Dedemenico, their resort-style destinations are on the forefront of breakthroughs in health and longevity. The 272,000-square foot facility in Bellevue is home to a range of sports specific courts, state-of-the-art pools and exercise rooms, restaurants, and a medical spa. As one of the premier health club providers in the United States, PRO Club needed a different approach to document management that would allow them to keep pace with innovations in business technology and leverage Microsoft SharePoint Online.


PRO Club had recently migrated from SharePoint on-premise to SharePoint Online to take advantage of a number of cloud-based benefits in cost, scalability, and service. As a result, they needed document management tools for scanning and data capture that would complement the move and enable process efficiencies and innovations across the various departments within the company.

“The system had to be easy to use, but most of all, work with our SharePoint Online document repository,” said Aaron Withington, ITS Senior Technician at PRO Club.

This made finding a complementary tool that would allow users the ability to search and interact with SharePoint easily of utmost importance. Fortunately, according to Withington, PRO Club didn’t need to look far. “We first became aware of KnowledgeLake back in 2007 when we were looking for a replacement for our aging document management system Docuware,” he explains. “We investigated several document management systems and we liked what KnowledgeLake had to offer in terms of customizable document types and indexing workflows.”

Despite many other options available, Withington explains that making the choice for a company-wide solution was an easy one. “We are happy KnowledgeLake customers, and prices for comparable systems were at least as much or more than the KnowledgeLake solution, so we decided to expand our use of KnowledgeLake rather than adopt another solution.”


PRO Club utilized KnowledgeLake to migrate from SharePoint on-premise to Office 365 in the cloud. The effort encompassed about 250,000 documents. But, in addition to the migration, PRO Club is using the KnowledgeLake platform as a centralized and logically-organized resource for the entire organization. Departments including Accounts Payable, Membership Events, Security and Payroll all have files indexed, classified, and stored electronically in SharePoint Online via KnowledgeLake. This dramatically streamlined operations and helped extend the use of SharePoint, turning it into a valuable platform for future efficiencies and process innovation.
