Added value for public administration

 Vertrauen in die Verwaltung stärken

Strengthening trust in the administration

The Hintbox strengthens trust in the public administration among citizens, employees of the authority as well as business partners.

The whistleblower system serves the public administration as a central software tool for secure authority compliance against corruption and irregularities.

 Risiken minimieren

Minimize risks

A secure whistleblower system helps public entities and their agencies prevent or minimize economic or reputational damage.

A neutral person or body may initiate appropriate follow-up action immediately upon receipt of a report of an irregularity in order to further investigate the matter as well as prevent damages to the public administration.

 Mitarbeitende der Behörde schützen

Protect employees of the authority

With our Hintbox, an even more legally compliant behavior and trusting working atmosphere can be created in the authority.

Early and decisive action by employees is strengthened and facilitated through anonymous whistleblowing.

The Hintbox strengthens additional trust in the integrity, neutrality and objectivity of public administration. The Hintbox can be another instrument for the administration to "nip in the bud" any suspicion of "bad faith" on the part of the administration by giving public authority employees and citizens the opportunity to report irregularities and violations of the law to a neutral person or body - even anonymously - via the digital whistleblower system. This neutral person or body can then initiate follow-up measures and manage them via the Hintbox.
