I would like to introduce one customer’s case where they built a system in a short time and achieved efficiency by combining the following services:
- kintone:Graphing database, statistics information
- Questetra:Automation of flow, Visualization of progress
- box:Secure storage
The target business was the “Management of contract renewal”.
Out of hundreds of contracts, we pick up the ones which are close to expiration and proceed their processing.
Since the process was done manually using Excel before, there were problems such as
- Mistakes by copy and paste etc. Could occur
Then, by combining the services above and automating the process, not only
- Reduction of working time ・ Elimination of mistakes
, were possible but also
- Easy visualization of the processing situation and statistics information for each issue
could be achieved.
The structure of the each integrative part is as follows.
- kintone → Questetra
- Questetra → box
- kintone ← Questetra
