With Belimo sharedlogic Belimo, the global market leader for HVAC actuators and governors, has come up with an innovative and ground-breaking development platform for intelligent solutions in the field of heating, ventilation and air conditioning. It is the result of five years of close cooperation with Ergon. Based on embedded systems, smart components can now be easily developed for decentralised applications used to automate building services.
Anyone who frequently travels by train in Switzerland will have certainly seen the orange boxes located on the platforms that help the guard give the engine driver the go-ahead. At some stations, if you look hard enough, you will see a special application for the smartphone developed by Ergon which is being used for this very purpose.
The LLB Group relies on a solution developed by Ergon for its online banking, providing clients with real added value to meet the maximum demands in terms of security, availability and ease of use. The independence of browsers as well as a multi-level security concept ensure that unauthorised parties cannot gain access to the system.
The onset of winter each year brings with it snowploughs and gritters. To cope with the challenges of ice and snow, the roads inspectorate of the canton of Lucerne and FEDRO asked Ergon and KELAG to develop a software solution tailored to their needs. This helps the staff responsible for keeping the country's roads clear in winter with their task, thus ensuring optimum traffic conditions on the federal and cantonal highways. The efficient use of snowploughs and gritters reduces costs, is beneficial to the environment and improves road safety.
Everyone has heard of the Coop. Given that the retail giant has the largest network of stores in Switzerland, with 1800 branches, that's hardly surprising. Yet even the Coop has to face growing competition in the Swiss retail sector. It is responding to these developments by further expanding its initiatives to satisfy customer needs. One such scheme is the Supercard, a bonus system which rewards customer loyalty.
Transport revenue of over one million Swiss francs, more than 400 freight cars and 900 lorries on the railways and roads, 70,000 pallet movements - every day! MGB Logistik Transport moves goods throughout the world and is one of the largest transport logistics organisations in Switzerland. To help it manage the challenges of a highly competitive market, the transport logistics managers at Migros rely among other things on MTWeb from Ergon.
With 3.2 million customers and 367 Raiffeisen banks in over 1150 locations, the Raiffeisen Group is the third largest banking group in Switzerland. Since 2009 the Raiffeisen Group has been using a new ATM transaction server. This was developed by the IT solutions specialist Swisscom IT Services Finance AG and its technology partner Ergon. The server is fully expandable and can be adapted to meet future needs.
MESPAS AG runs a very distributed solution for shipping companies to manage their ship equipment including a trading platform. Ergon implemented a client for the ships that works offline and that can be synchronized periodically. The module "Planned Maintenance" allows the ship crew to easily plan and document their maintenance work.
Ergon has played a central role in developing the operating software for GLORAM, Zurich's Global Risk Assessment Module. The application uses a sophisticated algorithm to project all possible risks associated with an object - whether a company or a country, for example - in two dimensions. So objects with similar risk levels also appear close together in the projection. This means that central questions can be answered more easily and more reliably.
The figures are impressive: over 306 million passengers and almost 13.3 million net tons of goods are transported by SBB every year. Every day, around 9000 trains travel over the 3000 kilometres of track. The people responsible for ensuring that all the trains arrive at their destination safely, on time and at the correct platform are the 9300 employees of the SBB Infrastructure division. Thanks to a specially developed mobile solution for PDAs, SBB Information Technology and Ergon are making their job easier.
As a federal office, MeteoSchweiz is responsible for providing the people of Switzerland with weather information. One of the most innovative services it offers is a weather application for mobile phones, which was developed by Ergon. The application means that people can access the latest weather information at any time, no matter where they are.
Health & Safety and environmental protection are considered to be key factors for all business activities at Roche and enjoy top priority within the group. Ergon has developed a risk inventory application that caters for Roche's specific needs, allowing all SHE-relevant risks to be registered and analysed. This can be used as the basis for initiating suitable measures for improvement.
In Switzerland almost a million people travel by train every day. As the work of the conductor becomes ever more demanding, SBB was in need of a new, modern networked device featuring an innovative software solution. Ergon was awarded the contract in the summer of 2003, with the first terminals going into service exactly two years later. They allow conductors to issue tickets just like the station counter and to check the new electronic tickets in a matter of seconds.
