Case Handling the smart Way - W&W Informatik and Cenit optimize case processing at Wüstenrot.

Wüstenrot Bausparkasse [Savings & Loan] AG, a subsidiary of W&W Group (W&W AG) relies on ultra-modern automation for its case processing. For years, incoming documents have been handled via electronic inboxes. To steadily optimize customer support and service, W&W strives to continually improve the underlying processes. Recently, an expansion update was installed to realize a number of improvement wishes on the part of Wüstenrot’s IT department. The changes have accelerated case intake, optimized document routing, and enabled more comprehensive monitoring. 


In collaboration with CENIT, the W&W project team expanded the mechanisms governing the automated case file management and mapped additional technical requirements with respect to the automated rules. Routing within the ILOG was optimized, and a case history was introduced. Wüstenrot staff can see via the portal what contract or customer changes have been made as a result of what case activity, and what documents (inbox and outbox) belong to a case file. Another innovation is data enhancement within the inbox: W&W’s systems now include more customer information in the data package appended to the case file in the inbox.

  • Implementation of new, more precise rules in automated case processing
  • Addition of personal inboxes to the inbox system
  • Data enhancement within the inbox: greater transparency thanks to a broader customer information
  • Improved monitoring for increased work efficiency

With its portfolio in the sphere of enterprise information management (EIM), CENIT is a specialist for IT-based management of enterprise-critical documents and information within core customer processes, primarily for financial service providers.

About W&W Informatik

W&W Informatik GmbH is the exclusive IT service provider for Wüstenrot & Württembergische Group. With about 850 staff, the enterprise develops and operates all IT applications within W&W Group and is responsible for networks, decentralized systems, architectures and computing centers.

Efficiency in production with SAP PLM, Engineering Control Center and the integration of CATIA V5 and NX

Being able to produce high-precision parts for the aerospace, marine, wind energy and transportation industry plays the key role for Janicki Industries. CENIT North America took the lead role in implementing SAP PLM together with ECTR, CATIA V5 and NX CAD integrations, which were crucial to meet the advanced CAD tools required by their customers.


As Janicki had not implemented any SAP program before the start of this project, this was the first necessary step for a successful implementation. With CENIT as development partner, Janicki was then provided with installation and configuration of ECTR with CATIA V5, while DSC took care of the NX CAD integration. Moreover, CENIT North America implemented one of its own collaboration products EnCo 4.4. Engineering Control Center was chosen as the CAD integration for both NX and CATIA V5 in order to allow all users to have the same Graphic User Interface for each CAD system.


The main benefits archived for Janicki Industries by this project is the improved efficiency, as well as the reduced time needed in designing 2D and 3D models. The models and documents are now directly linked to the parts and real time changes can be made to 2D/3D models by using different CAD systems. Furthermore, the status network is available to identify the status of different models/parts. Particularly the Graphical User Interface is now very user friendly for all implemented CAD systems.

Janicki Industries is an engineering & manufacturing company specializing in composite & metal parts, tooling & prototypes for aerospace, military, marine, architecture & other industries.

Janicki Industries is an engineering supplier of composite parts, tools and prototypes for aerospace, marine, energy, architecture and transportation.
