Reliance Steel and Aluminum

As they were looking to replace their homegrown invoicing system, Reliance Steel and Aluminum reached out to Ecrion for assistance. Reliance ultimately implemented Ecrion in a High Availability (HA) configuration to support the production of more than 10,000 invoices per day, many of which are multiple pages, and frequently a bundle of multiple documents. Reliance also leveraged Ecrion’s ability to place different logos and branding on their invoices and include targeted marketing messages within the invoices without having to manage multiple templates.

Johnson Controls International (JCI)

Johnson Controls International contracted Ecrion to help drive improvements in their sales-to-delivery processes. As their Sales team configures complicated HVAC solutions for prospective customers, the design sheet is created, and lives through the sales, manufacturing, and delivery cycles. This improves quality, accuracy, and customer satisfaction. JCI superusers easily create complex document templates with Ecrion Studio, a user-friendly design tool that enables business users to create and update document templates without tying up limited IT resources. Ecrion’s own template design specialists are also available to JCI if their needs exceed their in-house manpower.

Nokia

As Finland’s largest company, Nokia leverages Ecrion’s highly scalable enterprise-class document rendering capabilities to produce their customer-facing product documentation (Product Manuals, Operation Guides, Product Descriptions and Reference Materials). Data is extracted from their Vasont Content Management System, passed to the Ecrion solution for creation of PDF and HTML documents – some of which are several hundred pages long – and returned for printing and/or distribution. Nokia took advantage of Ecrion’s standards-based approach, including DITA, to achieve a rapid install and quick return on investment.

VinFast

As VinFast, Vietnam’s new automotive company, was looking to spin up operations in their first manufacturing facility, they reached out to Ecrion to integrate our solution with their Manufacturing Execution System (SIMATIC IT MES) for the high-volume document production required during the manufacturing process. Ecrion’s solution generates VIN labels, build cards, quality cards, manifest documents and certificates, and manages the printing stream — routing documents to different printer queues based on business requirements. Ecrion Professional Services worked both on-site and remotely to assist VinFast with their three-week implementation, including a High-Availability configuration and complex formats, including multiple layouts, page sizes, and barcodes.
