Exova Online in the cloud

16 December 2015


“Migrating from our local solution to the cloud was a manageable maneuver that we took care of during a weekend. It was up and running in a couple of hours”, says Mattias Svedberg at Exova that recently migrated their Pipeson solution from a locally hosted server to the Microsoft Azure cloud.

Moving from a local solution to the cloud has eliminated the need for local IT system support.

“For me, who manages the lab, it’s valuable to know that I will not have to spend time and money on system maintenance, upgrades, troubleshooting or technology infrastructure. We will save money every year and yet provide better service”, says Mattias Svedberg.

Pipeson’s cloud solution meets the service and security requirements stipulated by Exova’s central IT function.

“We manage important data that needs to be secure as well as available to our customers when they need it. This is a high availability solution, and the fact that Microsoft has adopted the international cloud privacy standard ISO 27018 was also important to us.”

Exova’s customers get faster access to their data via the Pipeson cloud solution.

“This solution actually provides our customers with faster access to their data since the cloud-based solution has better system resources. We can increase the capacity whenever we need, which guarantees our customers a continuous fast service.”

New approval management functionality

29 October 2014


Kiwa is a market leader in the area of certification and they are specialized in certification guidelines and product standards for approvals. The Kiwa mark is a highly respected; and having their stamp of approval on your product carries significant weight across the globe.

In collaboration, Pipeson and Kiwa have created a new functionality in Pipeson Data Manager, called Approval Management. Just like the name suggest, this new functionality will make it easier for our customers to follow the approval processes and to manage product approvals over time.

”Certification is in itself not a complex process and having all the testing requirements in a clear overview makes it very straight forward work. The Approval Management tool makes it easy to meet the typical international product standards”, says Marco Mekes.

Approval Management is based on Kiwa design and on their knowledge of product standards, certification guidelines and customer needs. It will be launched to current clients of Pipeson Data Manager in January as a part of the new Pipeson Data Manager 2.0.
