Smart web-application for the administration of nursing and hospital internships

The Command Support Organisation (FUB) ensures that the armed forces can fulfil their missions by providing services in the areas of ICT and electronic operations. It makes sure that the armed forces are capable of command and control in all situations.

smart digitalization of processes


Process sequences without media break

Initial situation

The existing access application has reached the end of its life cycle. New requirements could no longer be implemented with this technology.


In cooperation with isolutions a web application was introduced. It enables the planning, execution, billing and evaluation of the nursing and hospital internships of members of the armed forces (AdA).

The portal can be used intuitively and is tailored to the needs of the users. The digitalization and automation of processes has reduced the workload of the VBS staff.

All work is carried out in the same tool. It runs partially automated. This enables processing without media discontinuity, from allocationmass printing of assignment letters and certificates, through to billing with the training institutions. 

With the simple import of master data, errors are avoided and resources are saved. The automated, media-consistent process is an impressive example of smart digitalization.

«Thanks to the new web application, we were able to cut the processing time in half.»

Urs Streit, Project Leader, VBS
