Self-service portal for business teams

Avoid disrupting workflows with a self-service portal

Increase the autonomy of your employees, improve compliance and security standards and promote transparency across business processes with an intuitive platform that centralizes information, tools and services.

Common challenges faced by business and IT teams without self-service

Managing the huge volume of administrative tasks and processes

Teams from different departments lose valuable time and productivity due to the amount of administrative tasks and cumbersome processes, distracting you from the core objectives.

Inefficient communication and information systems

Communication between employees or with customers is often inefficient and not centralized. As a result, important information is lost and processes are unnecessarily prolonged.

Ensuring data accuracy and availability in relevant systems

Employees have more difficult access to correct, complete and consistent data. This impairs operational efficiency and employees' ability to act.

Difficult access and availability of essential tools and apps

Employees often encounter significant delays in procuring the software and hardware they need, hindering their productivity and ability to innovate.

- Features and benefits -

Self-service for business team. Reduction of administrative tasks

Automation of routine tasks and streamlined workflows

Reduces the time and effort spent on manual processes, allowing teams to focus on their primary business objectives. Repetitive tasks (e.g. updating personal data, recurring requests) can be handled more efficiently with the help of automation and interfaces to other apps (e.g. Slack, AWS, Active Directory).

Integrated communication platform in self-service for updates and information exchange

Promotes clear and prompt communication between employees and customers, prevents loss of information and misunderstandings and promotes the prompt processing of open processes.

Self-service portal for faster access to data and information

Easy and fast access to current, accurate, personal and work-related data and information

Employees can access up-to-date information about their workplace at any time using a simple search query. The link to a knowledge database enables service employees to provide information where it is needed and to answer recurring questions without a service request. This increases the operational efficiency and autonomy of your teams.
