SUCCES STORIES

GLS Denmark

”When we had to choose the system, we emphasized good search features that help us quickly find what we need. In D4InfoNet you can insert keywords on the documents so that they appear in related search results, and the search takes place even in attached documents and pdfs.”
– Susanne Norsgaard, Manager Network and Linehaul Operation

”D4InfoNet is the quality managers
hottest dream, because it can do anything”

A targeted and systematic effort for sustainability, safety and quality helps to place GLS among Europe’s leading package distributors. The company is ISO and GDP certified, and in several countries, D4InfoNet is the digital platform that structures and anchors the work with quality, controls and audits. Read more about the choice of D4InfoNet as a quality management system in GLS Denmark here. Current quality manager Ole Damsgaard (OD) and former quality manager Susanne Norsgaard (SN) (now Manager Network and Linehaul Operation) say:

Ole Damsgaard: ”GLS is a global company, and it places demands on quality across national borders. Uniform procedures have become even more important as we have grown. Customers expect the same service and delivery, no matter where they send their packages from, and there is no doubt that our systematic work to ensure, and constantly improve quality, helps to give GLS a good reputation.

The system creates structure and transparency in the workflows. We have well-defined procedures for consultations and approvals when we introduce new processes, and we can send documents in training and follow up on whether people complete these trainings. When a document expires and needs to be updated, the editor automatically receives a notification, and the version control is a big plus.

I usually call D4InfoNet the quality manager’s hottest dream, because it can do everything you want in quality management. One of the great strengths is the standard model itself, which is so flexible that it can be continuously adapted to the exact needs of GLS. ”

A common platform

Susanne Norsgaard: ” Like many other companies, we are also, mostly, an Excel company. We use spreadsheets, send many emails and store files in a folder system on the shared drive. It works well for some things – but not to ensure consistent procedures and quality across the company. So for us, the implementation of a quality management system has been about creating a common platform where all key documents and procedures are in a system that is accessible to all.

We avoid doubts on how to handle certain situations, because we have described the procedures on a platform, which everyone has access to, and when new procedures or information comes in, it is easy to communicate to everyone in a more formalized way, than one can in an email.”

The search function is crucial

Susanne Norsgaard: ”When we had to choose the system, we emphasized good search features that help us quickly find what we need. In D4InfoNet you can insert keywords on the documents so that they appear in related search results, and the search takes place even in attached documents and pdfs.”

Ole Damsgaard: ”Yes, it’s really smart in a big company like GLS, where the same things may well be called something different. By inserting all the designations as keywords, we ensure that all relevant documents are included in the search result.”

Control of feedback and registrations

Ole Damsgaard: ”All users can provide feedback on the individual documents, and the feedback is registered in the system, which, at the same time, sends an email to both editors and document managers. The comments are saved in the log, and here we are able to see if there is anything, we need to change. In addition, when we have an audit and find something, that is not precisely described, we immediately register it in the system. Then we have control of the information.

Furthermore, deviations and improvement tasks etc. are registered in D4InfoNet, where we have had a special form developed. It works perfectly for us. The process is controlled electronically, and we can, for example, define which groups must be notified in the event of, for example, occupational injuries or an unintended event.”

GLS Denmark's standard modules in D4InfoNet

    • D4Handbooks – fully searchable document management and handling
    • D4Flow – interactive visual flowcharts tailored to GLS’s procedure descriptions
    • D4GenericForms – electronic forms adapted to GLS ‘processes
    • D4HR – overview of the employees in GLS Denmark, i.a. with graphical display of profile types

Control of feedback and registrations

Susanne Norsgaard: ” In GLS Denmark, we have many hourly paid employees and drivers who do not have access to a PC, so they do not use the system, but all other employees and managers have access. Everyone can see everything – only quite a few areas are reserved for certain people – and p.t. we are more than 700 registered users in Denmark alone.

It is a super efficient system and it has not come out of nowhere. We have put a lot of effort into making it a place that is used, i.a. by posting as much relevant content as possible. So a good system does not just come by itself – you have to set aside resources for it.”
