Before: Inefficient and time-consuming manual document process

Due to its core business, FRIGO STAHL has to deal with a multitude of information on a daily basis.

But the number of documents was growing exponentially within the company and relevant information was difficult to find. The previous manual document process was inefficient and time-consuming. Thus, a new way to handle and manage documents was essential and FRIGO STAHL was looking for an intelligent information management system. The goal was to have documents on responsible persons and suppliers stored in electronic folders that could be easily accessed.
