These advantages convinced the Munich-based specialist for brakes. "In addition to its convenient handling, the crucial argument for choosing the tool was its ease of integration into our existing IT infrastructure," recalls Franz Eisenmann, Business Process & Application Consultant Human Resources at Knorr-Bremse IT Services GmbH.
Knorr-Bremse has been using the projekt0708 PDF Converter since January 2013. "Previously, we had to spend a lot of time clicking through all of an applicant's documents one by one," reports Franz Eisenmann. "With the add-on it is now possible to present electronic applications with the look and feel of a typical application folder. The electronic candidate folder does not only look like a conventional application file, but is also inspired by the classic version in its handling. Instead of opening individual file attachments, we can now scroll through a single document via the dashboard - comparable to flipping through a classic application folder". In the background, all uploaded attachments of an applicant are combined into a central PDF document, provided with cover sheet and table of contents and made available to the user. "This greatly simplifies the handling of the documents for our recruiters and managers," explains Franz Eisenmann. Within a single click an overview of a candidate' s profile is provided. The systematic structuring of all relevant candidate data supports not only the entire application process but also simplifies the comparison of applications.
The specialist for brakes describes the cooperation with projekt0708 as thoroughly positive. Consequently, the company will continue to expand their cooperation. "This year, we will gradually begin to introduce the projekt0708 PDF Converter at other locations as part of our e-recruiting rollout," reports Franz Eisenmann. As a technological pioneer, the group is aware of the central importance of continuously optimized and harmonized processes for the company's success. Since this goal can best be achieved in a team, projekt0708 will also be involved in the future.
