The Arkema Group is a global leader in the production of advanced materials and innovative solutions for the chemical industry, and operates in approximately 55 countries with a presence in Italy, where it has seven production sites. The company has decided to improve workflow management at its facilities in Porto Marghera and Rho, and enhance staff safety by leveraging Ascom’s Enterprise Solutions.
All Arkema sites have already been equipped with Innovaphone's IPBX and gateway services in addition to Ascom’s DECT services, which include: 5 IPBL modules, 72 antennas, 2 Unite platforms, 36 locators and 185 mobile terminals, most of which are d81 Atex Protectors, used by mobile staff operating in potentially isolated environments within the facilities.
At its facilities in Porto Marghera and Rho, Arkema has adopted Ascom's workplace safety solutions including lone worker safety and identifying workers' location, which help optimize operational efficiency, staff protection, and shorten response times when needed. The design and development of these services at Arkema sites has been implemented by ERT Srl, a company specializing in providing IT solutions for the industry.
