In replacing a cumbersome e-mail-based process, Red Bull Latinamerica needed a solution that put everything in one place to make it easier for managers, as well as the employees making the requests, to more efficiently complete the asset acquisition process. Most importantly, because of individual countries’ regulations, as well as the breadth of assets being acquired (everything from computers to cars), there were different levels of approval required for each asset as well as for each country.
Red Bull turned to Yapaweb, to build a process management system that would uniformly handle its asset acquisition functions in Central and South America. While the Yapaweb team considered building a system from scratch, one member had discovered the Integrify solution while researching options for another client, and recommended it as the base on which to build the Red Bull request management system. By building on the Integrify system, Yapaweb helped Red Bull avoid high development and maintenance costs.
Integrify’s request management simplifies the process request submission, quickly completing a task and gaining insight into the status of the request activity. This is accomplished by providing a unified request portal that allows for a common and intuitive experience for the end users.
In the last year, Red Bull has also started to use Integrify for asset disposal, where it is just as convenient and beneficial.
“Thanks to Yapaweb’s services and the Integrify platform, we were able to eliminate our old paper-based sign-off system for CAPEX,” said Paul Proano, CFO Latin America, Red Bull. “Our review and approval process has been greatly improved, plus, it keeps a record of the activity so we can reduce room for mistakes.”
