Digital Leader: 2nd Place at the Digital Leader Awards 2017
At the Digital Leader Award 2017, Eissmann Group Automotive won 2nd place with its Doxis4 project “iRoom Eissmann Suppliers Platform as a Service (PaaS)”.
On July 5, 2017 Mr. Hilbig (Head of Digital Services / IT) accepted the prestigious prize for the category “Spark Collaboration” at the formal Awards Gala in Berlin. Eissmann triumphed against 95 competitors with its iRoom project which was judged to be one of the best digital projects put forward by a German manufacturing company. Eissmann’s IT department rose to the challenge and worked together with Procurement to expand its well-established Doxis4 supplier file by creating a collaborative solution, the iRoom.
The iRoom is a virtual internet-based project room. The aim was to make interactions with suppliers work even more smoothly. The iRoom serves as a joint information centre for processes and a medium for the exchange of documents and multimedia objects.
