Challenge Each year IFJ organises around 500 workshops and events with more than 10’000 participants. The idea was to handle the professional coordination, the planning, the publication and the overall administration of all event programs with the aid of a simple system. To increase the efficiency seminar participants should be able to search for events and to comfortably register via SelfService. Furthermore partners of IFJ should be able to work with the software from different locations.
Why umantis? In 2001 umantis convinced as a start-up with a motivated and competent founder team. The software was based on an innovative technology and was customisable to the needs of IFJ. Thanks to the web-based approach of umantis the cooperation of IFJ with various partners at different locations is no longer a problem. The overview of running processes is guaranteed and the current state of events can be called at any time and from all quarters. With umantis IFJ has meanwhile grown to be a national player with various geographic locations.
