Victorinox, a world renown Swiss company with a long tradition, has decided to adopt Comarch ECM as its document management system throughout their whole group of subsidiaries. In doing so, Victorinox implements its second IT system provided by Comarch In 2004, the company chose Comarch’s ERP system. Comarch ECM has the ability to map a broad range of processes: from archiving sales slips in the 25 stores via scanning and workflow control regarding incoming invoices and other incoming paper documents to archiving e-mails. In the near future, the document management system will be used by more than 500 employees.
In an intensive evaluation process, Comarch ECM prevailed over all the other services on offer. Remo Furrer, project manager for Global Logistic and Process Management explains why: “Besides the modern technology concept of the ECM server architecture offering ideal possibilities for scalability and the ergonomic, and the user-friendly interface for the management of dossiers and workflow processing, another decisive factor for us was the competency of the project when we had questions regarding individual integration concepts. For the same reason, we had already decided in favor of Comarch ERP Enterprise following the previous evaluation process concerning ERP.”
The new project’s objective is to enable all employees to store, search, and display business-related documents and data by implementing the document management system as a unified solution. E-mails, documents and data from MS Office as well as from business applications such as ERP, HR, and freight forwarding software shall be provided to the employees as part of the ECM software or within MS Sharepoint. They shall be sorted into dossiers, connected to respective tasks, and provided within workflows. This saves time when storing, searching, compiling, or forwarding documents and dossiers.
Furthermore, Comarch ECM offers excellent possibilities for integration. Thus, it is possible to create continuous processes, e.g. mapping an invoice receipt workflow, or displaying archived documents directly in the ERP environment.
