AutoInergy, a division of Plastic-Omnium, is a tier-one supplier of complete plastic fuel systems and emission reduction related fluids systems to car manufacturers. The company’s engineering and design team designs 2-D CAD Drawings for various parts and sends them to suppliers throughout the world, who use the drawings to quote and manufacture the parts.
AutoInergy was processing the approvals of drawings manually by printing, stamping, signing and scanning them in PDF format, and uploading them to locations where suppliers had secure access to view them. This manual process required reprinting and re-signing, and was wasting time and resources. In fact, a staff member was dedicated to coordinating approvals and transferring the paperwork to suppliers. To replace this function and automate the process, the team needed a custom application.
“Our coordinator was retiring, so we had to build the custom app quickly,” said Jeremy Lempicki, Manager at AutoIntergy. “Otherwise, we wouldn’t be able to send our approved drawings to suppliers in a timely manner.”
