The Berliner Stadtreinigung (BSR) is a service company responsible for garbage collection, street cleaning, and waste treatment. With about 6,000 employees, the company is one of the largest employers in Berlin and the largest municipal waste disposal company in Germany.
BSR's IT department wanted to increase agility by releasing faster applications to reduce dependencies on the SAP system. In addition, adopting modern technologies makes BSR a more attractive employer, as such technologies offer ambitious IT professionals the opportunity to participate in digital transformation projects.
Together with Appian, Bechtle, an IT specialist for the German public sector, won a Europe-wide tender to implement a solution for BSR. Appian and Bechtle developed an application to help coordinate stormwater inlet cleaning by mapping the process landscape.
“As a municipal company for urban cleanliness in one of Europe's largest cities and at the heart of the European digital economy, we work every day for a better and smarter Berlin. We want to make our city a smart, diverse, clean and above all sustainable place for all Berliners.
We are happy to go down this path with Appian. Thanks to the smart platform, we can make our goals and values a reality faster, more inclusively, and more agilely than before with state-of-the-art cloud applications.”
