Business case

Chantier atlantique logo
Chantiers de l'Atlantique is a shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, France. It is one of the world's largest shipyards, constructing a wide range of commercial, naval, and passenger ships. It is located near Nantes, at the mouth of the Loire river and the deep waters of the Atlantic, which makes the sailing of large ships in and out of the shipyards easy.

Context and Challenge

Chantier’s IT System is based on a central SAP ERP. Although the system provides powerand reliability, employees needed new digital applications to perform their daily tasks.

Another important asset in the company is Alfresco ECM holding all the ship technical documentation.

The challenge was to build new UI optimized applications able to execute offline within the constructed ships, processing data from SAP and Alfresco.

Mission and Solution

Installed On Premises, Convertigo back end technology was used to provide mobile services from SAP and Alfresco and several mobile applications were developed on top of these services. Later on, the customer used the front end low code capabilities to build more apps faster.

Chantiers is also one of the first customer to use the No Code Studio to enable their employees to create their own digital apps. The company has currently more than 30 Citizen developers.

Benefits obtained

Decision was made to use Convertigo No Code Studio after having noticed that many users where using non managed cloud and Google Forms for critical data. 

- 100+ applications developed and deployed

- SAP Backend exposed as digital UX to 10 different employee profiles

- B2B web portal for subcontractors combining SAP data and Alfresco documents deployed for 2000 subcontractors
