Business Improvement Case using kintone + box + Questetra
Business Improvement Case by automation combining multiple cloud services

 

I would like to introduce one customer’s case where they built a system in a short time and achieved efficiency by combining the following services:。

  • kintone: Graphing database, statistics information
  • Questetra: Automation of flow, Visualization of progress
  • Box: Secure storage

1: Overview

The target business was the “Management of contract renewal”.
Out of hundreds of contracts, we pick up the ones which are close to expiration and proceed their processing.
Since the process was done manually using Excel before, there were problems such as

  • Difficulty
  • Mistakes by copy and paste etc. could occur

Then, by combining the services above and automating the process, not only

  • Reduction of working time /Elimination of mistakes

, were possible but also

  • Easy visualization of the processing situation and statistics information for each issue

could be achieved.

 

2: Details

The structure of each integrative part is as follows.

    • kintone → Questetra


Embedding Javascript to kintone, place a new button on the screen. In the process when the button is pressed, send an http request to Questera with data of kintone as parameters. Questetra receives the request as “Message Start Event (HTTP)” and starts a process.
