Application-based Requirements of the Department of Education and Sport
The introduction of the new act about the funding of childcare in Zurich had raised the question how to efficiently handle contracts in an enterprise content management environment. Regulations require all households, which receive support from the city of Zurich, to communicate changes in their household and financial situation on a yearly basis. The census forms (12’000 applications per year) reach the households by sending them through the post. For the coordination of holiday support another 60’000 holiday support applications must be processed and managed annually. Thus far these documents had be processed, mailed and archived in paper form. The entire handling was considerably simplified by means of the comprehensive solution implemented by Advellence. The solution includes the “Information Manager” ELOenterprise, an SAP interface as well as the 3-Heights™ Document Converter Service.
