Logo Hevron

In 2005, FRACTAL-SWISS offered us its Intranet portal, a solution for managing organization, documentation and communication.

In 2007, it allowed us to achieve ISO 9001 certification to guarantee the traceability, quality control, modus operandi, customer satisfaction then, in 2010, to complement our efforts we became ISO 14 001 certified for environmental management and OHSAS 18 001 for safety at work.

To crown our performance and quality development, we complemented this approach with ISO 3834 certification for welding and EN 1090 for the product's CE compliance.

Our company has made a huge step forward in its development during this period. We have become one of the Swiss leaders in the market with almost 300 employees and turnover of CHF 80 million.

Project definition and analysis

Firstly, FRACTAL-SWISS SA and the client defined the project workflow in order to acquire these certifications during the period mentioned above.


Then, secondly, we analyzed the various processes of the organization and lead the change in both the company's organization and culture.


Implementation of the FRACTAL-SWISS® platform

For facilitate the tasks mentioned above, use was made of the FRACTAL-SWISS® platform by all involved in the project in order to centralize each business process, including all operational documentation.

The FRACTAL-SWISS® platform was used to roll out all the business processes including those corresponding to all the standards selected.


All teams involved in the certification project had direct access and were able to submit all the documentation, drafts and final documents, namely:

  • Management of all correspondence according to the processes dedicated to the departments;
  • Standardization of the documentation and "corporate identity" allowing the company to be presented with a single uniform identity;
  • Cross-sectional transparency towards all of the company's employees thus standardizing the message of the company's vision and mission;
  • Subsequent reduction in the company's overheads;
  • Receiving excellent comments from the auditors, financial auditors and EN 9100 and ISO certification by the deadlines.

Project costs

  • The FRACTAL-SWISS® platform, formatting and adaptation of the latter to the company's needs;

  • Implementation of all the processes with the company's teams, including the writing of the latter;
  • Implementation of the processes in the platform with simplified and uniform management for all those involved (internally and externally);
  • Support for the certifications selected;

CHF/€ 100,000 before tax representing approx. 500 man-hours.

The project cost has been amortized over a year based on a simple calculation of productivity per employee and the time required for the implementation/search for documents, as follows:


For a 100-person team in the office each spending 5 minutes per day looking for documents this is an annual productivity gain of CHF 101,640.

This does not consider other more significant factors such as specific loss of business which would have lead the company to automatically revise its strategy.
