Applus+ Entrusts DRIVE NDT with Digitization of NDT Workflow

BIETIGHEIM-BISSINGEN, Germany - May 17, 2022 - PRLog -- Applus+ Germany is one of the largest providers of non-destructive testing (NDT) services in Germany and with more than 20,000 employees in over 70 countries is one of the largest companies in the industry worldwide.

In order to cement its leading position over the longer term, Applus+ is investing in future technologies. One of the key challenges of the future is the digitalization of all NDT processes. "A key promise is that the test report of an accredited company is the last word for the professional or expert in court. For this, trust in the correctness of the work processes and legal recognition of freedom from defects are fundamental prerequisites. For this reason, the traceability and auditability of test results and test reports are essential. These requirements can only be ensured in the wake of digitalization," explains Dr. Michael Neiser, CEO of Applus+ Germany. That is why Applus+ Germany has been using the NDT workflow management platform DRIVE NDT for 4 years, currently at three of its locations in Germany. "At present, 20 of our employees are operating DRIVE NDT, but we manage about 112 employees in the system," clarifies Oliver Rosendahl, Regio Operation Manager at Applus+.

"We use DRIVE NDT for the entire service delivery process, from order creation to report generation and the archiving of test results," states Dr. Michael Neiser. Traceability and secure backup of data play a decisive role in this. This structured way of working is at the core of DRIVE NDT. The qualification of inspectors and evaluators as well as calibrations and the maintenance statuses of devices are checked at all times, thus preventing incorrect assignment when allocating tasks. In addition, entire refineries with all components to be tested can be mapped in the software.

Software must be as flexible as the demands on the company. "With DRIVE NDT, we can handle any type of job, no matter what customer segment we are serving," says Dr. Neiser. "We are very satisfied with the service of AAP-NDT and DÜRR NDT. If a function is not available in the system, a custom feature can be created and integrated due to the modular structure of the software." In this way, the system can be adapted as precisely as possible to the actual way the company works.

"To date the availability of DRIVE NDT has been impeccable. The service and advice are also absolutely recommendable," praises Oliver Rosendahl. "In cases of problems or questions, support was always quickly available, helpful and solution-oriented. This has resulted in a very trusting collaboration." This is obviously no empty flattery, because Applus+ has now undertaken to introduce DRIVE NDT at all its locations in Germany.
