How does Saint-Gobain improves its visual communication in manufacturing ?
With more than 167,000 employees, Saint-Gobain Group is present in 70 countries. It designs, produces and distributes materials that are found everywhere in our habitat and our daily lives (buildings, transport, infrastructure, etc.). Saint Gobain Sekurit entity, for its part, specializes in window solutions, in particular for vehicles, effectively adapting to changes in the mobility sector. In this context, the Group's offices are evolving by becoming digital too.
The digital signage needs of Saint-Gobain Sekurit
Saint Gobain Sekurit Germany therefore wanted to offer an effective communication channel, on site, as already set up within the Isover and Placoplatre entities, to streamline internal communication for its 800 employees but also to improve the welcoming of visitors.
The solution brought to improve the internal communication
To this end, screens are placed at various locations on the site: at reception, in break rooms, catering areas, etc. and more generally at the various places which visitors and/or employees pass through and meet in.
The messages intended for employees aim to give better visibility to internal communications: reminders of the Group's vision, words from the Chairman, announcement of internal events or even information related to human resources, etc. These messages are mainly managed by the communication department, which uses the Media4Display digital signage solution in complete autonomy, producing slides which are then organized into sequences from the interface and scheduled on the targeted screens.
The use of the Media4Display digital signage software also makes it possible to ensure the consistency and relevance of what is broadcasted with an overall view of scheduled communications, but also to display the right information, at the right time, to the right people.
Communicating with visitors thanks to digital signage
The use of the Media4Display platform also makes it possible to ensure the consistency and relevance of what is broadcast with an overall view of scheduled communications, but also to display the right information, at the right time, to the right people.
A digital signage software providing many waranties and possibilities
For a group with international resonance, and in a constantly evolving environment, the security of networks and information sharing is essential. The choice of the Media4Display digital signage software was therefore motivated, above all, by the guarantee of information security offered by the platform. But Saint Gobain Sekurit Germany also wanted a solution that would allow them to move towards displaying production data in the future. Thanks to Media4Display, the Group will for instance be able to distribute production KPIs, in real time, thanks to the integration of data from the ERP (made possible by the partnership between Media4Display and SAP). We can also think of setting up an accident-free days counter, an important metric on industrial sites, or personalized information for truck drivers arriving on site.
