CV Generator in SharePoint

The CV generator in SharePoint makes it much easier and faster for innobit AG to apply for new consulting projects.

Days of implementation

The digital, automated CV generator in SharePoint is a multi tenant SaaS solution for innobit AG. The app helps to make the application process for new projects much more efficient to save time and costs.


The manual creation of CVs was time-consuming and labour-intensive, leaving advisors with less capacity for real value-added work. Moreover, manually produced CVs often did not meet the quality standards with which a company wanted to present itself to the outside world.  

Another problem was the possible incompatibility of the CV design with the company's brand guidelines. This can be extremely detrimental to a company's external image. In addition, manual data entry was error-prone, leading to important information being overlooked.

But the requirements were so individual that no standard solution could meet them. It was also essential that the solution was well integrated into the Microsoft ecosystem.

That's why innobit AG opted for skybow. The skybow Solution Studio is perfectly integrated into the Microsoft world. This means it can be used in the familiar environment. Furthermore, with the help of the skybow low-code platform, you can perfectly cover individual requirements within a very short time.  

How we solved it

The basis for the CV generator in SharePoint is the data on the employees' skill sets. Therefore, a separate dossier was initially created for each employee with the help of skybow dossiers. Each employee can fill and maintain this independently using SharePoint Forms.

These were created with the skybow Forms Designer and configured according to the needs. Thanks to various mandatory fields and conditional formatting, errors can be avoided. In addition, the updating of the information works quickly, easily and can be done anytime and anywhere with the CV generator in SharePoint.

To ensure that this is always up to date, employees are automatically reminded at regular intervals to update their profile via a Microsoft Teams message.

The actual core function of the CV generator in SharePoint is the automatic generation of CVs. This is done with the help of skybow's document generation feature. This allows completely customized Word or PDF documents to be created at the touch of a button.

All you have to do is upload a sample document with the appropriate placeholders in the document generation feature in skybow Solution Studio. Administrators can make any necessary adjustments to the design of the CV document templates directly and promptly in the skybow platform.

Once the automation action has been set up accordingly using the low-code wizard, the CVs can be generated at any time in the CV generator in SharePoint. These correspond exactly to the company's CI and display all data 100 % correctly and reliably.

Our CV generator in SharePoint is an invaluable tool for us. We can quickly and easily create professional CVs that give our clients a clear insight into our skills and experience. Implementing this solution with the help of the skybow Solution Studio was super easy and fast. I couldn't imagine a better solution for that use case.

The solution

In order to supplement offers with CV documents of the consultants, these can be created automatically in the CV generator in SharePoint. The information is entered and maintained independently by the consultants. This makes the application process for a new project a lot easier and faster.

In order to maintain the flexibility of individual document adjustments, the generated CV document can be exported directly from the CV generator in SharePoint as an Microsoft Word file. This means that it can be individually adapted at any time if required.  

In addition to the data to be collected on language experience, competences, education and training as well as industry know-how, personal employee information from existing data in the system is used. The information on existing project experience is automatically supplemented with a detailed description of the project with responsibilities and roles. ‍

The CV documents can be generated in several languages in the CV generator in SharePoint.

The data provided by the employees for the creation of the CVs can also be used for internal evaluations and reporting for the HR department.
