August 5th, 2019 – The benefits of fiber optics

The fiber is finally connected!

The deployment of the optical fiber on our Nogent-sur-Seine site has enabled us to increase from around 30 Mbps to 200 Mbps.

We notice a significant difference when we use software such as skype for videoconferencing with our customers or our teams abroad. Similarly, sending large files now works very well.


We strongly encourage our neighbors to equip themselves as well, because the investment is worth it. Not knowing when the region would equip the industrial zones, we took the lead. Of course, the more companies we have in our area to support change, the lower the investments will be over the years.

All our offices have been equipped with WIFI for a long time, which allows us to work on all our files in real time and in any office, meeting room and workshop. Our next mission is to optimize our telephony system by using our cloud. This will allow us to facilitate internal communication, optimize the possibilities offered by digital technology (will make answering machine, call transfer, assigned numbers, etc. easier), and optimize the return on investment. For the moment we are still testing how the optical fiber reacts to get to this important step.

We provide all the necessary tools to avoid analog: laptops, tablets to take notes directly on the digital files and not have to copy something by hand. It is a waste of time, and the possibility of making mistakes. In this way, each employee is encouraged to contribute ideas to digitize and facilitate their daily work.

This does not take away jobs, on the contrary. This gives us the tools to be more efficient in the face of competition and improve quality, traceability, in short to be better and to be able to concentrate on important tasks and of greater added value. Significant improvements in inventory management and shipment tracking are being validated using new digital tools.
