Cognibox is proud to announce that all Tembec operations in North America will be fully integrated into our contractor management solution. The project will be implemented in 2 locations – Cochrane, Ontario and Matane, Québec – at first, and will be rolled out in the rest of the company’s operation in 2017.
The decision substantiates Tembec’s commitment to harmonize contractor management among sites and benefit from Cognibox’s expertize, technology and back office support to improve efficiency and reduce accidents. It will also ensure the organization conducts business with top performing contractors in sustainable development and occupational health and safety to remain a leader in those fields.
