Rothauer has also found it easy to access customer data in the cloud this morning. Last year, he outsourced all the IT of Trewitax, the company he helped to found in St. Gallen, to the cloud. The company’s name, Trewitax, reflects the three specialist areas of its 30 or so employees, who are spread across three Swiss locations: trust services, auditing and tax consultancy. The Trewitax group also includes three subsidiaries in neighbouring countries.
“When we moved over to the cloud, we took an important step towards digitising our work,” recalls Hermann Rothauer, “and laid the foundation for further changes.” Rothauer uses the cloud on customer visits: “I can access all the data I need, such as process models and analysis tools,” says the auditing expert. “Such flexibility was an important reason why we chose this solution.” It means Rothauer can work wherever is most convenient: at the customer’s premises, in the office in St. Gallen, or even at home. His company’s IT services need to be “flexible, simple and secure.”
