Solution-as-a-Service

Subscribing our service is the most convenient and most cost effective way to use our MES software. The software runs in our data center in Austria and can be accessed from anywhere in the world by simply using an internet browser. The hardware for the production and machine data acquisition is constantly monitored and maintained. There is no need for you to invest in additional servers (hardware and software), or the monitoring, maintenance, or administration of software and hardware respectively.

Protecting your data is especially important to us. Therefore, we always keep our cloud environment on the latest state of technology. We use modern cryptographic encryption methods on all system levels. Your data is encrypted before being transmitted from the browser to our servers. There it is stored anonymized. Furthermore, your data is backed up regularly and the backups are kept physically separated from our data center.
