When a company faces the digitization process, it means minimizing paperwork and digitizing physical records. Especially in the administrative sector, this is a pain point for many companies that have built up an immense archive of files over the years. However, the Legal Department of 'HPM Die Handwerksgruppe' has successfully taken on this mammoth task and introduced the electronic file. The Handwerksgruppe received support from Jodocus GmbH, Germany's first and only cloud-native process optimization provider in the Atlassian environment. This enabled the integration of the essential tools for implementing electronic files, taking another step towards digitization.
Supporting Handicraft Businesses: HPM Service und Verwaltung GmbH, based in Hamburg, is a service provider for businesses, offering support in various areas, including human resources, accounting, controlling, marketing, IT, and legal matters with experienced lawyers and extensive expertise in the construction industry.
This often involves comprehensive support for construction projects, contract reviews, and assistance in contract negotiations. In case of disputes, businesses can rely on legal assistance, both internally from experts and, if necessary, in collaboration with external lawyers. Furthermore, the Legal Department of the Handwerksgruppe provides template letters and sample contracts that serve as templates for the businesses. However, to ensure individual legal advice for each business, there must be a file for every legal case containing all the essential legal information and contacts. For many years, this was done in the form of physical files, the standard at that time. But with the group's growth, now comprising more than 150 businesses, the desire for process digitization has been growing steadily.
HPM Die Handwerksgruppe is a family-owned business group and one of the market leaders in the construction trade, consisting of successful, locally rooted craft businesses in Germany and Austria. Since 1989, HPM's success has been based on the acquisition of craft businesses that are looking for an entrepreneurial home for their life's work. HPM continues to grow and is now a strong network with over 150 top-quality businesses in three sectors: Painting, Facade, Interior, Technical Building Equipment, as well as Windows and Facades.
