MOXIStoolkit and the eSignature in
A tool you can build on.
The ways in which digital processes can support the construction industry are not immediately apparent to the casual observer. Yet the concept of “Industry 4.0” has long since arrived in this sector as well, e.g. through Building Information Modeling (BIM). What’s behind it is nothing other than the digital construction site, in which all the individual steps, from planning, through implementation, right down to calculation, are summarized in one model. Complete information is available at any time for all participants, each minor change in the project with all its impacts can be seen immediately.
In concrete terms, BIM stands for planning as a 3D model and digital acquisition of all relevant data that can then be directly integrated into the model. What is already a normal practice in Britain and North America is not yet a ubiquitous feature in the Austrian construction industry. HABAU GROUP is also still in the beginning stages in this regard. An initial important step in the digitalization process is now made with the implementation of the eSignature – in the form of MOXIStoolkit.

simplicity of use
Focus on Simplicity
With MOXIStoolkit, the signing function is completely integrated into existing internal enterprise systems. The use of electronic signature essentially runs behind the scenes. Gerhard Schaupp, Head of IT at HABAU GROUP, calls it “a decisive advantage. I know my users, it needs to be as simple as possible. If it is unwieldy, because you have to exit the application, it won’t be used.”
With MOXIStoolkit, the signature process can always be used from the application that is currently running. “XiTrust has provided tremendous support to us in the implementation phase. But I was partly surprised myself just how well it was received by employees”, says Schaupp.
Numerous Cases of Application
The implementation of MOXIStoolkit initially covered internal processes, such as the requesting of IT assets via an online form. A simple approval by means of advanced signature is usually sufficient for this. Yet the process for performance reports in controlling, where qualified signatures are necessary and were previously signed manually according to the four-eyes principle, is already a reality.
There are plans to rapidly expand the areas of application – there are more than enough possible scenarios at HABAU GROUP. Documents from public agencies, on which several persons from the executive board are required to bear signature, are still an extremely time-consuming matter, given the decentralized structure with locations in all of Austria. Here the digital signature can be optimally used with its entire spectrum of advantages. The purchasing department is also soon expected to be able to sign digitally – including the suppliers.
With headquarters in Upper Austria, HABAU GROUP is a successful family-owned enterprise, in existence for decades, today employing 5,000 people, and among Austria’s top four construction companies – handling construction projects to the tune of more than one billion euros annually.
