DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH decides on windream

Federally Owned Society for Air Traffic Control Purchases windream Company License

The DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung (German Air Traffic Control) GmbH based in Langen, Hesse, has decided to use our ECM system windream in all divisions of their company in the future and to implement windream as their standard ECM company software.

A corresponding agreement was reached between the executive boards of windream GmbH and the DFS. With the DFS, we are winning a renowned customer operating not only nationwide but internationally. As a federally owned company, the DFS is among other things responsible for the security and control of the entire German air space.

Decisive Criteria: Flexibility and Adaptability

Flexibility and the resulting adaptability to existing IT infrastructures were the decisive criteria for the decision to use windream company-wide at the DFS.

Furthermore, another central requirement was the investment into an ECM software which can be expanded into a central data infrastructure system conveniently and without much effort in programming, and which can centrally manage the entire business-relevant document stock of the DFS, regardless of specific document types. According to the Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH, windream fulfills all these requirements without limitations.

Company-Wide Use

The windream product portfolio to be used by the DFS in the future encompasses an extensive range: from the integration of the Business Edition of the windream ECM system into SAP applications – this primarily concerns the creation and safe archiving of purchase and retailing files in windream – via a specific solution for e-mail archiving in Lotus Notes, up to the management of CAD documents, the windream portfolio will cover all company divisions of the German Air Traffic Control.

Next to the company-wide installation of the windream ECM system including the associated system management tools, the DFS will also use the Business Process Management software windream BPM for electronic views on their internal business processes. The company license also contains the use of windream as a hierarchical storage and information life cycle management system.

The Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH (DFS)

The DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH is a federally owned company organized according to private law with 5.900 employees. These employees coordinate up to 10.000 aircraft movements in the German air space every day, and about three million per year. The DFS ensures safe and punctual air activities.
