E.ON Ruhrgas AG – Security for Contract Management Documents
E.ON Ruhrgas AG’s core business is the purchase and sale of natural gas. Both directly affected departments create and administer contracts and supplementary documents. For processing and fulfi lment of these contracts, other departments require knowledge of certain, preselected contract content in the form required by deregulation (unbundling of business areas in the energy industry). Until recently distribution was paper based, leading to considerable delays and lack of transparency. In addition, retention periods needed to be respected. This led to the project “Contract Data Management” as the implementation of an integrated, user friendly and audit proof administration and distribution of contract data on the basis of EMC Documentum and setupSmart of fme. The standardized method and consistent architecture of setupSmart facilitated the implementation of all internal enterprise WebTop applications.
»It was very important for us not only to optimise the transparency of document administration, but also to improve and accelerate the entire process«
