Element in Nyköping, Sweden, an independent testing institute specialized in tests for pressure pipes since 1973. They have a total capacity of 4,500 simultaneous hydrostatic pressure tests and can carry out 250 simultaneous tests for chlorine resistance. The mission is to provide superior testing and evaluation services, which form an integral part of material classifications, system certifications, and research and development projects. Element testing services are fully accredited and covers standardized tests and custom made tests. Element has been working with Pipeson since 2007.
”I estimate that our project managers can handle a project volume that is 25-30% larger as a result of the implementation of the Pipeson software. Pipeson Analyzer makes it easy to work with the data as well as to evaluate it and communicate the results”, says Mattias Svedberg, Senior Project Manager at Element.
Modern data management and online communication
Element has customers in 50 countries around the world, and traditional means of communication had its drawbacks.
”Phone and e-mail was made difficult as we have customers who operate in different time zones, and in some cases also by language confusion. The Pipeson solution allows all authorized individuals to have direct access to the relevant project information from their own screens via the Pipeson’s solution”, says Mattias.
Complete online platform
In September 2014 Element added multiple systems in order to manage all client data efficiently.
“Now we can offer our clients access to all of their historical test data as well as current test data. This will facilitate data management and help them put all available data to good use”, says Mattias.
In September 2015 the Element systems where migrated to the Microsoft Azure cloud.
“Moving from a local solution to the Pipeson hosted cloud solution has a number of benefits to us and our customers. It has eliminated the need for local IT system support, the data is extremely safe and we save money every year. This solution also provides our customers with faster data access since the cloud-based solution has better system resources. Another significant upside is the unlimited scalability; we can increase the capacity whenever we need, which guarantees our customers a continuous fast service”, says Mattias
