Rapidly required digital enablement of workforce


Skilled IT workers had no time for core tasks as they were managing IT fleet


Need for more efficient, automated device management

Digital, automated processes from ordering to returns

During the coronavirus pandemic, CLARIANT needed a new, efficient way to equip their employees with the digital equipment they needed right away. The need had already been recognized, but now it had to happen very quickly: A solution was needed that would automate workflows for device management.

Lifecycle Management Services, self-service portal tesma® for direct ordering of devices by employees and certified data erasure services with eraSURE

Lifecycle Management Services

Our lifecycle management services cover the entire life cycle of the devices. This includes pre-configuration of mobile devices, delivery to the home office or office, support and maintenance, rapid replacement in the event of a defect and greater sustainability by reconditioning the devices for a second product life.


CLARIANT's device management was reorganized with the help of our asset management platform tesma. Employees can easily order their own devices from a defined catalog via the self-service feature within tesma Portal. Approvals, rollouts, delivery, service and maintenance, device returns: everything is now automated and processes are error-free and significantly accelerated. The perfect solution to relieve CLARIANT's IT department, allowing them to invest more time for core tasks.

Device management is automated, from ordering, delivery, and use to maintenance, service and return. By linking technical and commercial data, the IT department has an overview of everything at the touch of a button. Due to the relief of operational work, they can devote themselves more effectively to their strategic tasks.
