Throughout our 140-year history, innovation has been in our DNA. But partnerships can help us to elevate our products and services, as well as invent new and future-proof technology to benefit customers.
We are proudly partnering with Microsoft to develop new digital Testing, Inspection and Certification (TIC) services.
The collaboration will integrate Microsoft’s cross-industry expertise, advanced data solutions and productivity platforms with our global network and leading industry competence to develop innovative solutions for TIC industry customers.
The partnership further aligns us with customer demand and the key TIC megatrends – connectivity, nutrition, health and wellness, sustainability and climate, infrastructure and consumer empowerment.
On this journey, we are continually evolving into a more sustainable, digital and data-driven company.
By connecting data with processes and customers, as well as improving the user experience through design thinking, the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), we aim to personalize the customer experience and interlink our suppliers, partners and customers to provide digital, end-to-end solutions.
This is reflected in our strategic ambitions to generate 20% of revenue through digital services, 50% through Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) data, and 30% through AI-enhanced services.
Microsoft is the ideal partner to help us realize these goals.
The new collaboration will enable us to develop and innovate data, IoT and AI-based TIC services that are sustainable and inclusive, helping our customers to realize their full potential.
