In 2013, Raffinerie Heide GmbH began to build an IT system landscape with an SAP system and an
ECM solution as a platform to manage document-supported business processes and electronic
records. With this landscape in place, the company started in 2015 to design a more secure and
effective project approval process. The project approval workflow was supposed to create, edit and
grant approval of proposals. The project documents, e.g. cost estimates, offers, etc., were to be
electronically attached to the proposal and made accessible for every project participant. The goal
was to create an integrated solution based on Doxis4 iECM, on the newly developed budget planning
tool, and on SAP solutions for project planning, approval and processing.
