Ergon among the best again
In sixth place for 2023, Ergon has once again been recognised among Switzerland's best employers. Why? Our values and culture.
Successful business innovation
What does an effective innovation process look like? How much innovation does a company need in the first place? There’s no patent recipe for successful business innovation. But if the framework and the approach are aligned, success is within reach.
Optimising box sizes – letting the air out
Digitec Galaxus is short of air. And that’s a good thing. The online retailer has optimised the size of its boxes. Why? Because any unused space must be filled. That isn’t environmentally friendly, it’s unpopular with customers, packing orders takes longer, and there’s more volume to transport. It took Ergon just two months to model the company’s requirements and calculate what box sizes would work better. With seven billion variables, optimising the model demanded great engineering and cloud computing expertise. The result was a 28 percent reduction in the need for filler.
