LACROIX City is an industrial company that designs ecosystems dedicated to mobility and smart roads. The company (600 employees / 6 production sites) is an entity of LACROIX Group, an international technology equipment manufacturer (4000 employees, €468 million of turnover). In 2015, they chose BlueKanGo for their document management.
They chose BlueKanGo software in 2015.The initial project involved 2 entities of the group: LACROIX Electronics and LACROIX City where I am currently working. The main reason why we chose an EHSQ solution was initially the lack of a document management tool, with manual management and the use of an office server as well as an issue with multiple action plans with a large number of Excel files.
Within LACROIX City, the Traffic division was a pioneer under the leadership of its industrial director, Serge GARIZIO. They have implemented a significant number of software, among other things for Test and Measurement Equipment (TME) Management, power supply and action plan management, QRQC and also EDM.
As for Signage division, we actually started in 2018 with EDM. Implementation for employees is planned for September. We have product certifications such as NF/CE as well as ISO 9001 and 14001 systems. We are planning on implementing way more than just the EDM system. We plan to manage the certificates and applicable standards of our productsbut also other specific documents. For example, the Safety Data Sheets in the management of our chemicals. A wide use is what we going for.
We work in project mode and in total collaboration on these 2 divisions. The idea is to “standardize”.BlueKanGo helps us align our practices. The strength of this solution lies in its “interdepartmental” and “inter-unit” ways to share information and to disseminate it widely. In the long run, nearly 400 users will be affected.
A far as I am concerned, BlueKanGo brings a lot of versatility and flexibility. It is a tool that can be pushed quite far.The BlueWall’s ergonomics are successful. We are getting good feedbacks from our users. Another advantage is that we are working independently without having to call on the IT department’s skills. We also aim to eventually implement BlueKanGo in the other 2 business units of LACROIX City.
As an industrial designer of smart roads solutions for local authorities and companies, LACROIX City is directing, optimizing and securing the flow of vehicles and people for a final objective: a fair sharing of the street and the road, taking the needs of all users and operators into account. An innovative player in French industry, LACROIX City relies on its expertise acquired over the past 80 years in designing, manufacturing and marketing their products and services in France and abroad.
