EvoBus Česká republika has been IXTENT’s client since 2012. Thanks to the digitization of a large part of the agenda in selected production areas relating to the lifecycle of specific business commodities (buses in this particular case), which has been implemented by IXTENT, EvoBus Česká republika belongs among the companies that welcome the digital era.
EvoBus is the European branch of Daimler AG. With its branches Mercedes-Benz, Setra, OMNIplus, and BusStore, it covers the entire service spectrum on the European bus market. As a member of the Daimler Buses division, it is the largest European bus manufacturer and one of the leading global producers. Until last year, all documentation about the vehicles produced and sold by this company was maintained in paper form. This has changed thanks to IXTENT.
The aim of the project, which was executed during two months in 2016, was to implement an autonomous solution for vehicle documentation organization within the existing document management system (DMS) including automatic import of both existing and newly generated documentation without any additional future costs. This has provided a structured environment where production records, commercial and technical information, invoices, or handover records are automatically stored. All historical documentation, which has been available only in the paper format, is gradually scanned and imported into the DMS. The scanned part of the paper archive has been disposed of. The process is set like that to encompass all records relating to the vehicles manufactured or sold in the future.
The solution had been based on the existing platform (OpenText Content Suite) based on which a new agenda has been created to adapt to users’ requirements regarding documents structure and individual processes. This agenda, among others, provides maximum transparency of all phases within the physical “lifecycle” of EvoBus’ fleet. This not only increases the internal transparency and traceability but also minimizes the risks relating to contractual obligations towards EvoBus’ counterparties.
IXTENT will provide EvoBus with software and application support for the implemented solutions for the future.
