Greycon Completes Second Stage of Global SAP Template Rollout for Resolute Forest Products

Greycon X-Trim X-Trim is a trim optimisation system created by a team of developers at Greycon. Seamlessly integrating with SAP, X-Trim optimizes performance and reduces production waste.

Dec. 2, 2016 - Greycon announced that it recently completed the second stage of a five wave implementation at Resolute Forest Products in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Resolute initiated the global template rollout campaign to establish Greycon's X-Trim solution as the company's standard trim optimization system.

Jay Jordan, Sales Manager, North America for Greycon said, “We are very happy with the progress so far of Resolute's rollout campaign. Establishing a new system in a company can always be challenging especially when you have multiple sites that need to be aligned. This is why we are so pleased with the X-Trim solution, it integrates seamlessly with SAP, showing Resolute a significant difference almost instantaneously.”

Greycon completed the first wave for Resolute in February of this year. Since then, Greycon's X-Trim solution has been implemented at eight of Resolute's mills.

Greycon expects to complete the campaign by September of 2017. The project involves 16 mills in total, all of which are integrated with Resolute's SAP/APO system.

Greycon added that its certified “Interface for Industry-Specific Optimizers” for APO allows Resolute quick configuration and deployment throughout each wave of the project, allowing a seamless interface between X-Trim and APO.
