Automation Degree of 93%: More Time for Strategy With Lower Costs for EnBW

On the way to efficiency – learn how EnBW drastically reduced manual tasks in operational procurement with the help of parasus and achieved an automation level of 93%.


The EnBW Energie Baden-Württemberg AG realized that automation is a journey. It describes the way of adopting new technologies, analysing, and improving processes, but especially encouraging the own organisation to join.

As a result, the first step is to determine the as-is situation of the processes. Together with the parasus, EnBW outlined the current system landscape and identified white spots for potential optimisation and automation.

The ambitious project objective was clearly determined: Automation of 80% of all non-value-adding activities within the operative procurement.

„Nobody really believed us and that we could achieve our goal of automating 80% of non-value-adding manual activities in procurement – we even achieved 93% in the end. “
