The long-established company Lindt & Sprüngli is actively promoting digitisation. The first step was the digitisation and partial automation of a previously purely paper-based approval process. 1stQuad advised the company on the process definition and implemented a solution based on SharePoint and Nintex – and this was so well received that further processes have already been digitized today.

At Lindt & Sprüngli AG, investment applications have traditionally been prepared, reviewed and approved in a paper-based process. Documents were forwarded by internal mail. Information on the status of an order could only be obtained through targeted demand. A complete overview of all current investment requests was difficult to obtain. Lindt & Sprüngli was no longer satisfied with this and was looking for a solution that would standardize and shorten the process.

1stQuad had already set up an intranet and collaboration platform for Lindt & Sprüngli and now received the order to digitise the investment approval process. In close cooperation with the business departments involved, the digitized business process was developed and implemented using SharePoint, Nintex Workflow and Nintex Forms.

Today, the investment requests go through a uniform process. The applicant fills out a form on the intranet. Once the form has been entered, an automated workflow starts: a controller decides on the scope of the application and forwards it to one of the specified approval chains. The persons involved are notified successively by e-mail and record their decision in a form that displays exactly the relevant information. In addition, a PDF file is generated, which logs all steps up to the decision.

Each investment application is thus archived without gaps, unchangeable and traceable. Authorized employees can view the status of all applications on a dashboard at any time. Lindt & Sprüngli is convinced of the benefits of automated workflows and has already digitized further business processes with the support of 1stQuad.
