Digitalization of contract management

Die neue Vertragsmanagement-Lösung mit SharePoint Online bringt der KHR erhebliche Vorteile.

KHR digitizes contract management with SharePoint solution from Online

Kraftwerke Hinterrhein AG (KHR), a major Swiss energy supply company, has significantly modernized its contract management with our solution. Previously, KHR used a SharePoint on-premise library to store the contracts. In order to manage the contracts more efficiently and improve functionality, we migrated all contract data and metadata to SharePoint Online.

KHR, based in Thusis, supplies around one million people with renewable energy from hydropower. With a portfolio of reservoirs, dams and run-of-river power plants, KHR is also involved in numerous energy projects and the protection of nature and the local population. The company is owned 50 percent each by the cantons of Graubünden and Zurich.

The new contract management solution with SharePoint Online brings considerable benefits to KHR. It significantly simplifies the management of contracts. In addition, integrated tools such as PowerAutomate and Azure Functions allow the creation of unique contract numbers and the automatic renewal of contracts. These technological improvements reduce the manual effort for all users and at the same time increase the quality of the data. This makes the process faster, more efficient and error-free.

The solution

  • KHR has chosen SharePoint Online as the basis for contract management. This platform enables efficient and secure document management.
  • The implementation of the filing services is supported by PowerAutomate, which enables the automation of various processes, e.g. automated reminders for invoice runs.
  • Azure Functions is used to generate unique contract numbers and simplify the exchange of contract managers.
  • The integration of the PnP Modern Search Tool from the Microsoft Community enables individual search and filter functions that allow precise navigation in the contract data.
  • The data migration was automated with the help of ShareGate, which ensures a seamless and secure transfer of contract data.

How KHR benefits from digital contract management

  • A centralized and structured filing system for contract documents considerably simplifies contract management at KHR.
  • A flexible authorization concept allows different users to access and manage contract documents according to their roles and authorizations.
  • The modern user interface supports the search and management of contracts in an efficient and user-friendly manner.
  • A full-text search with individual filter functions and a live preview of contract documents and enclosures makes it easier to find specific information.
  • Alert and reminder services for contract owners and the secretariat improve compliance with deadlines and general contract management.
  • Automatic renewal and deactivation of contracts – based on the stored contract information – minimize manual effort.
  • Smart views provide a better overview and faster processing of contracts.

«The collaboration with Online Consulting AG was a success for KHR. Thanks to the new solution, we were able to make our contract management more efficient and sustainably optimize our processes. We greatly appreciate the professional support and the trusting partnership.»
