GF Casting Solutions optimises Lifecycle-Management

GF Casting Solutions relies on the Fabasoft Business Process Cloud to facilitate structured cooperation with suppliers for the lifecycle management of die-casting tools. For this purpose, data relating to the tools (costs, deadlines, technical execution, and so on) is digitally recorded, compiled from the individual locations, and made available to all employees and suppliers involved in what are now the standardised processes, in accordance with the specific requirements. By migrating GF Tool Manager to the Fabasoft Business Process Cloud, a comprehensive solution was created that digitally manages the entire tool life cycle.


Security, transparency and improved process quality

Implementing the Fabasoft Business Process Cloud means that there is now only one standard system for document management with the suppliers. Security, transparency and improved process quality are ensured by the history of documents, folders, or entire projects, by the option of setting deadlines and by the defined approval process. Additionally data security is guaranteed by certified European quality such as the C5 certificate of the German Federal Ministry for Security (BSI). 

“With the launch of the Fabasoft Business Process Cloud and the roll-out of GF Tool Manager, our organisation can now work more easily, quickly, and more securely with all suppliers", says Alois Edtbauer, MSc, Buyer Sourcing Group Capex and Tooling at GF Casting Solutions.
