Spitalregion Rheintal Werdenberg Sarganserland launches new social intranet


ConVista Consulting responsible for project consultancy


Cologne, 26th April 2018 – In cooperation with ConVista Consulting, Spitalregion Rheintal Werdenberg Sarganserland (SR RWS) has launched its new social intranet “Cockpit”. The project ran for one and a half years and was predominantly managed from Cologne. The technical implementation was done by the internal partner SSC-IT. In the middle of April “Cockpit” went live in Rebstein in Switzerland.

The Cologne IT and business consultancy primarily played an advisory role. The objective was to simplify employees‘ daily tasks at SR RWS and to make the co-operation easier. The idea was to ensure that a target approach was adopted when informing staff about company and departmental news, as well as encouraging social interaction. Moreover, it was important that the new intranet business and technical administration is as lean as possible.  

ConVista’s experts conducted multiple workshops, in order to specify requirements. They then went on to produce the business blueprint, the blueprint for the document management system and then subsequently initiated the implementation project.

“We are delighted by the successful launch of our new social intranet. The agile methodology followed by ConVista’s Consultants  considerably contributed to the project’s success, as we worked more efficiently, and we were more able to react quickly to new issues, thanks to the close communication within the project team,” said Andrea Bachmann, Manager Communication and Marketing at SR RWS, who was satisfied with the project.  

“We can look back on a successful project and excellent co-operation with SR RWS. The customer implemented our recommendations well, always focusing on the user. We found it be a productive partnership, working together on an equal professional footing”, adds Mario Westrup, Lead Consultant at ConVista Consulting.
