Landratsamt Berchtesgadener Land

All 330 employees, plus 40 other geographically separated participants from the city of Freilassing, use the EGroupware (EPL), which has been in use in the district administration office since 2004. The task of the district administration office is the public administration of institutions, communities, tourism, economy, health care of the district Berchtesgadener Land.

On the recommendation of a former developer and extensive Internet research, we decided on the high-quality and inexpensive EGW, which as an open source solution offers an enormously wide range of possible applications and diverse functionalities. Since this is a browser solution, we could do without the installation of various software on 300 PCs. This saved us time and the optional use on smartphones gives us mobility and flexibility.

Used modules:

  • Group calendar function: Scheduling of appointments by planners and users / no appointment overlaps, quick and easy scheduling
  • Address book
  • InfoLog: Order processing, document management, structuring of records
  • Mail: e.g. use of various additional functions – e.g. absence note

EGroupware offers a very good support, delivers intermediate status messages and usually fast good solutions. The team is characterized by competence, friendliness and good accessibility.
