In addition, the testing service provider with its more than 20,000 employees supports innovative technical solutions, offers advanced training and certifies management systems according to international standards. To ensure the reliability and security of systems in business and everyday life, TÜV Rheinland consistently uses the opportunities offered by digitization.

    With the target to adapt internal processes even more flexibly to customer requirements, the product division of TÜV Rheinland introduced ComPASS as a central business tool. In order enable the employees to use this application quickly and easily, a digital assistant shall guide them through the highly complex software. The digital adoption platform WalkMe was chosen, which ensures intuitive operation. This digital assistant was intended to replace the complex classic training concept for employees. TÜV Rheinland brought T-Systems MMS on board as a partner to deal with this task.

  • Solution

    Using complex IT applications intuitively with WalkMe

    Global employees can access the multilingual ComPASS tool via a browser interface from any PC, test it with WalkMe and use it in everyday work.
    In this digitization project, T-Systems MMS was responsible for project management, implementation, employee training and technical support.
    Intelligent “smart tips”, step-by-step instructions and program guides help users navigate intuitively through ComPASS. For user support, T-Systems MMS has developed various use cases for various work steps and problem cases, so-called WalkThrus. WalkMe guides – from automated click paths to how-to videos to program tours – can be further developed. If users have any questions or problems, the project team will set up new WalkThrus within a few minutes, which will help them overcome these stumbling blocks.

  • Benefit

    With the roll-out of ComPASS, all employees of the product division worldwide were able to start the test phase and then the use phase at the same time. The digital adoption platform WalkMe navigates users quickly and reliably through the new business tool. This reduces the error and cancellation rate and thus contributes to user acceptance of ComPASS. In this way, WalkMe ensures efficient workflows.
    The digital user guide replaces lengthy training sessions with intuitive user guidance in real-life operation. With WalkMe, the classic training concept becomes a phased-out model, and the cost and time expenditure for training employees is significantly reduced.
