What have we delivered?
We have digitized the auditing process for a large association of craft cooperatives from all over Germany.
What we created was a user-friendly (even for the inexperienced users), easy to use, twofold system responsible for audit management.
The product we delivered consisted of two platforms. The first one was dedicated to the Genossenschaftsverband (cooperatives’ union) representatives, where users could upload the necessary documentation, and the second was developed to support auditors in their duties.
We carried out the project working closely together with Horn&Company.
What was the challenge?
Craft cooperatives in Germany are large and numerous organizations.
Genossenschaftsverband, the cooperatives’ association, includes 358 credit cooperatives (with total assets of over 481 billion euros), and it employs more than 1,500 people. The activity of cooperatives in Germany are subject to specific audit regulations.
Before we delivered our product, audit procedures relied on paper and were performed by not computer-savvy users. The necessity to depaperise and increase the efficiency of the audit required the development of a tool that, on one hand would be in line with the procedural requirements, and on the other, would be friendly to users accustomed to traditional working methods.
