Meanwhile, Sievert SE uses numerous signature pads of the signotec Gamma and signotec Omega as well as our special software solution for companies in the logistics industry in use.
Even longer than the cooperation with signotec is the existence of Sievert SE itself - already more than 100 years. Sievert SE was founded in 1919 as a trading company for construction and fertiliser materials and is now active as a specialist in the field of construction materials and logistics solutions with approximately 1,700 employees at around 60 locations in Europe and Asia.
Using our special software solution, the handwritten electronic signature processes are simplified in the area of goods dispatch at Sievert SE. The focus is on being able to perform most of the necessary actions - from entering to signing the delivery notes or transport documents - directly on the connected signature pad. This is because there often is no possibility for the forwarder or the signatory to have access to a screen due to the existing local conditions. The signed PDF documents are then archived in the existing system environment and linked to the delivery. In this way, the documents for the archived process can be retrieved at any time.
Since 2014, it has been possible to embed images in delivery notes and, since 2019, delivery notes in transports. This way, it is no longer necessary to sign and archive countless delivery notes, but only a single transport document with the associated delivery notes as an attachment in the PDF. The reasons for introducing this comprehensive solution from signotec were, on the one hand, the desire that the driver should be able to sign digitally and, on the other hand, the wish that the delivery notes could be retrieved electronically. Furthermore, the focus was on eliminating the physical filing in folders and saving paper as well as the high process costs.
In 2020, Sievert SE looks back on 21 locations where delivery notes are signed and archived digitally and counts over 1.8 million digitally signed delivery notes and over 400,000 digitally signed transports.
In conclusion, Steffen Kretschmer from the SAP application support of Sievert SE emphasises: "I have been supervising the implementation of this solution from the beginning and have been working very well with Mr. Triebsees from signotec since the introduction. All previous requirements have been successfully implemented and I can contact him at any time if there are difficulties in the processing."
We would like to thank Sievert SE for the many years of cooperation and look forward to many more years together!
