  • Technical planning shall be carried out by Netze BW
  • Recruit such partners to build up a sales force of subcontractors in order to expand its services for customers Germany-wide, with several partners in certain areas


  • The company asked scoutbee to find providers for services
  • Identify companies in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and France with 30+ employees capable of maintenance work on high voltage systems in Germany.

  • Must be managed in German and have full German jurisdiction

  • After seven days, 112 relevant suppliers identified for the Longlist.

  • Within 35 days, 15 new optimal supplier contacts from previously unknown suppliers.
  • Only eleven hours of human resource time.
