Background

Norderstedt, located in the northern metropolitan region of Hamburg, is the fourth largest city in Schleswig-Holstein with over 80,000 inhabitants, and its administration involves the typical tasks of a medium to large-sized town. In the coming years, its administration will become entirely digital, covering both filing systems and process management. For this purpose, an extensive project plan was drawn up with the help of MindView.

The software is Citrix-compatible and can therefore be distributed very efficiently across many workstations and requires little administration.
