Coop’s Initial Situation

The solution was supposed to facilitate the administration of checklists, the planning and allocation of audits, and the electronic recording of the audit results. Moreover, a paperless data administration and comprehensive evaluation possibilities were needed to enable benchmarking on different levels in order to determine targeted measures for quality improvement.
Intact’s Audit Management Solution

The focus was on implementing processes that were not already well-covered by other IT solutions. or this reason, the continuous updating of the assortment and address data as well as responsibilities takes place fully automatically via an interface to Coop’s central business software SAP.
