A specialist in premium hospitality operating internationally, Châteauform used RunMyProcess DigitalSuite to reduce repetitive manual effort in expense management to almost zero.
Châteauform’s accounts department had a long-winded process for managing staff expenses. It involved recording all of the expenses into an Excel spreadsheet that then had to be printed out, approved by a manager and finally, reviewed by accountants. These manual steps were extremely time-consuming, taking 10 hours a month to carry out.
Fujitsu RunMyProcess developed a solution for Châteauform in just one month, allowing employees to submit expense information online. Personal data are then automatically reviewed by the application and forwarded to the corresponding manager, who receives an email notification and can either approve or refuse the expense. If approved, the request is sent to accounting for validation, where reports can be exported with one click to the ERP of the accounting department or to salary payments in .csv format. The application was originally developed based on Google Apps (with Google OpenID authentication from any location), later to be migrated to Office 365 as part of a larger IT re-base.
Châteauform is an international hospitality chain providing luxury conference venues and meeting rooms for professional events across Europe. Originally founded in Persan, France, it has employees in the UK, France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Belgium, and Germany.
