Several state parliaments in Germany use DATAGROUP’s petitions process. According to state constitution every citizen has the right to submit queries and complaints in a petition to the State Parliament. The State Parliament Petitions Committee is obliged to examine every filed petition objectively and then propose appropriate solutions.
DATAGROUP’s petition process electronically maps all workflows from the receipt of the petition to the closing procedures. There is also a parliamentary (MP) portal that allows access to the petition files and meetings with all decisions and documents. This means quicker access to information needed at individually specified times.
The petition process is an example of a document and workflow management solution based on Microsoft SharePoint. It uses a web-oriented, user-friendly interfaces and offers the State Parliament many advantages.
