Tentoo 'rewrites' organization with Google Cloud Platform

Click here to read the Dutch version of this case

the challenge

Tentoo Payroll Professionals, subsidiary of the Dutch company Tentoo, depended on software developed for the Dutch market to execute their 100% digital services. This made it increasingly difficult to deploy adjustments necessary for Belgian legislation and to offer their customers an innovative platform. The various software packages were hosted on local servers in the Zaventem office with an unreliable internet connection and the hardware was supported from the Netherlands.

the solution

Together with Tentoo g-company fully replaced the existing architecture by one modern digital platform tailor-made on Google Cloud Platform. The application integrates with RSZ, Prisma, Exact Online and Freshdesk (case management), meets the needs of mobile users and is fully compliant with Belgian legislation. 
Freelancers and clients can now register, submit contracts, consult and edit personal data and easily find all documentation, including contracts, invoices and pay slips.
Thanks to the use of App Engine and Google Cloud Storage the platform and the linked digital archive are fully scalable: if Tentoo grows, the platform grows with them. It is also highly customizable: without any downtime new versions can be activated. Hardware is no longer needed.

To our organization it is more that an added value. The platform simply ís our company.
— Johan De Boel, Managing Director Tentoo Belgium

the result

Tentoo Belgium is now better than ever fully equipped to serve the Belgian market. In a period of 16 months, the organization was rewritten, as it were. They offer a modern, fully scalable customer platform, adjustable to Belgian needs. They no longer depend on a server and can use the system anytime and anywhere. All information can be found very fast and easily, because there is only one 'archive' so to say.
Tentoo is now looking into possible next steps for further digital professionalization.
