    Seamless communication between these systems remarkably increases the efficiency of business processes, frees up human resources to important tasks and creates competitive advantage.

    Our data centre has long-term experience in the integration of various types and sizes of systems for different purposes. Our expertise ranges from processing of event data of individual equipment automation systems to integrations between large enterprise resource planning systems with massive data amounts.

    We have received a lot of positive feedback on our agile software development model. We develop software applications in close cooperation with the users working in teams, which we call customer juries.

    In this way, customers can test the software and give feedback on it starting from the initial prototype. Experience with development stage versions accelerates the introduction and deployment of the software. This procedure ensures that the customer receives a high-quality software product, tailored to their individual needs.

     

  • We offer our customers knowhow in all of the areas of quality assurance including testing, planning and management of test cases, conduction of tests, automated testing and reporting. We implement quality assurance procedures commensurate with each customer's requirements. Possibilities range from the work input of an individual tester to a complete service.

    We develop the quality assurance process and test methods in accordance with the customer's needs. If desired, the customer can obtain real-time information about each stage of the software development process. Our testing and quality assurance experts are certified professionals holding, at a minimum, the ISEB/ISTQB Foundation certificate. Our auditing services include, among others, system quality and maturity analyses.

  • Mtech has been our partner for many years and is well known to hundreds of fur producers in Finland and Norway. WebSampo, a breeding software tool for fur farms introduced in 2013 is continuously further developed. One of the important reasons for selecting Mtech as our partner was that, in addition to their IT skills, they also have special expertise in information systems for agriculture, food economy and animal culture. In calculation of breeding indices, Mtech is in a class of its own!
