GBS Workflow Manager

Success Story: BPA Solutions A/S extends its own software product with GBS Workflow Manager

BPA Solutions A/S, a Danish IT service provider, helps companies optimize their business processes. Many of these customers wanted to automate the approval process for incoming invoices, but often spent an unnecessary amount of resources to register, verify and suppliers’ invoices. 

This problem gave rise to the idea of using GBS Workflow Manager as the basis to develop their own solution for automating data collection from the invoices and the approval process.

The implementation was very successful as the GBS Workflow Manager-based billing solution resulted in faster clearance of invoices, reduced staffing levels and a real-time view of the entire process within the finance department more >>


Partnership with Uniscon

Partnership with Uniscon: GBS expands portfolio with secure file sharing & collaboration solution from the Cloud

GBS and Uniscon, technology leaders in cloud security, both share the same motto "Security Made in Germany". The two companies are also connected by their claim to support customers with innovative solutions and comprehensive know-how in complying with national and European data protection laws. In addition to secure email communication, some use cases also require secure file storage and collaboration across company boundaries. In that regard, the next logical step for GBS was a new sales partnership with Uniscon.

Since April, we have been expanding our portfolio with secure collaboration from the cloud with iDGARD, a product by Uniscon, a German cloud service for secure data exchange and virtual data rooms. Thus, digital communication and cooperation with partners and customers are secured at the highest level and at the same time simplified, because iDGARD complies with the strict EU GDPR principles and is suitable for persons entrusted with confidential information. iDGARD has also been certified by TÜV according to the Trusted Cloud Data Protection Profile. This certificate confirms the high level of security, namely: maximum protection of class III.

Thanks to this cooperation, we enable our customers to work together with partners efficiently, while providing the highest level of protection of their corporate data. In addition to increased efficiency in the project work through simple setup and expandability of the data rooms, the greatest added value comes from the highest level of security in data storage and transfer.

With iDGARD we have now expanded our Cyber Security portfolio, offering our customers a solution for secure online collaboration and further support them on their "safe" way to the cloud. We will be glad to answer your questions regarding this topic:

News from iQ.Suite

The new iQ.Suite versions will be released at the end of June

We plan to release new versions of the email management solution iQ.Suite by the end of June. iQ.Suite 18.0 for Microsoft Exchange/SMTP and iQ.Suite 22.0 for IBM Notes/Domino offer numerous innovations and improvements.

In a nutshell, the most important highlights of the major releases for both iQ.Suite 18.0 and iQ.Suite 22.0:

  • iQ.Suite Watchdog offers Kaspersky 64-bit scanning engine with URL scan phishing option and Sophos sandboxing statistics, which can be used to display detailed information about the processing of the Sophos sandbox. For example, which files or hash values have been uploaded to the cloud.

  • iQ.Suite PDFCrypt has been improved in terms of compatibility with PDF readers and PDF spoofing and now includes the password assignment of multiple sender/recipient relationships – e.g. all senders from a company can use the same password for the same recipients.

  • iQ.Suite Crypt supports GnuPG 2.2 and therefore the improved, up-to-date security level.

For iQ.Suite 18.0 for Microsoft Exchange/SMTP and Office 365

  • The iQ.Suite MSX Multi-Tenant Edition is fully integrated in 18.0 Setup.

  • For PowerShell CmdLets, there are address lists, iQ.Suite Clerk configuration and delegation, and password entries offered in the Password Manager. This makes it possible to import data from external sources into the respective iQ.Suite modules or databases.

  • The WebClient receives a resend password function and the new version receives an AzureLDIF Importer - a Windows service that automatically exports LDIF from Azure and imports it into an iQ.Suite database.

For iQ.Suite 22.0 for IBM Notes/Domino

  • The new major release comes with a new sandbox architecture for iQ.Suite Converter and includes setup packages for Domino 10 versions. The update installation has also been improved.

  • iQ.Suite Watchdog includes a new job type with success and error action and iQ.Suite Wall includes a cleaning mail job that is used to remove HTML bodies from emails.

The new versions of the email management solution iQ.Suite will be available for download in GBS download area at the end of June.
