At KIBAG Bauleistungen, innovative ideas are transferred digitally from the construction site to the headquarters – photos, videos, voice and text notes can be captured directly on the smartphone or tablet. Behind modern innovation management is a cloud solution based on Office 365 and AgilePoint. 1stQuad has supported the construction company from the proof-of-concept to the start of productive operation.

There are numerous KIBAG construction sites throughout Switzerland. The company specialises in road construction, civil engineering and demolition, hydraulic engineering and special civil engineering. During the construction activity and the inspection of the construction sites, innovative ideas often arise, which were previously recorded on paper and transmitted to the head office for further development.

KIBAG wanted to convert this classic workflow into a digitalised innovation process and already had very clear ideas about how innovation management should proceed in the future. For the implementation with IT resources, initially in the form of a proof-of-concept, the construction company involved 1stQuad.

In close, iterative cooperation with those responsible for business at KIBAG, the process, which had already been largely defined, was reengineered in individual points and mapped in IT in the form of two components: Via a portal created in Office 365, KIBAG can maintain the process and dynamically provide content. The actual workflow is based on AgilePoint: ideas are captured using a form that is automatically routed through the individual process steps. The departments involved are notified by e-mail and the collected information is finally stored in the portal.

Form processes created with AgilePoint are inherently mobile. KIBAG employees can enter ideas directly on the construction site with their smartphones and tablets, using the native capabilities of the devices: Photos and voice notes allow more direct and convenient communication than just text input.

Since Office 365 and AgilePoint are a pure cloud solution, integration into KIBAG’s IT was possible without great effort. The proof-of-concept convinced KIBAG. The new innovation process is now being used productively.

"The cooperation with 1stQuad was profitable in every respect. The team was motivated, competent, always available and open to our concerns.Due to their constant efforts to implement our ideas in the process in the best possible way, the final solution corresponded exactly to our needs. "
