Success Story_UniCredit Leasing_ Austria


Published on

UniCredit Leasing is the number one leasing company in Austria. Drowning in paper, wasting a lot of time in copying, filing and passing around paper they decided to automate their archive, mailroom and business processes. Utilizing IBM FileNet P8, WeWebU's OpenWorkdesk solution framework and a well thought-out project plan, the company was able to move to a mostly automated handling of lease contracts as well as incoming invoices, also integrated into their core systems. Key success factors for this showcase are analyzed. Many solutions for problems in this challenging mixed organizational and technical environment are presented for this - now absolutely business critical - application within a widespread and complex business environment.
