Implementation ERP

Digitalisation makes us better

We are a more modern and efficient organization thanks to optimized processes, streamlined workflows, and interconnection.

New working and safety instruments

We have internalized the use of new technologies completely, applying them to some traditional events such as the Festival of Sant Jordi, which in 2021 saw the gifting of eBooks.

Greater connectivity

The pandemic has accelerated global connectivity. Our IT system has taken a quantum leap to ensure connectivity in remote working environments.

Implementation of ERP management

In 2021 we made progress in the overall automa- tion of administrative processes. Thanks to digitisation, we have optimised workflows to move towards paperless procedures in all areas of corporate activity.

The digitalization in CZFB:

Implementation ERP

Renovation of the corporate Media Library

New corporate Intranet

IP telephone communications

APP to manage CZFB fleet of vehicles

Implementation of digital signature (zero paper)

Renewal of ISO 27001 Information Security certification
