Reshaping testing, inspection, and certification through technological innovation #

Technological capabilities change the way testing, inspection, and certification activities are carried out due to the changing landscape. Kiwa is continuously exploring new ways to conduct business with customers, partners (such as Twintag), and universities.

Digi-Tags exemplifies this trend, representing a recent advancement in the digital inspection & testing businesses. It signals strides towards a more digitally-driven future.

Back to basics: what is Digi-Tags? #

Digi-Tags is a new tool for managing safety information and inspection data more efficiently. Each asset undergoes inspection and receives a unique Digi-Tag. This tag enables quick access to crucial details such as inspection analytics and maintenance tasks via a straightforward smartphone scan, thereby improving efficiency and convenience. By emphasizing security, confidential data is accessible solely through authorized user accounts, guaranteeing a safeguarded experience.

"Digi-Tags introduces a significant advancement in asset management," elaborates Jonas Van hove, Global Program Manager Digi-Tags. "By assigning a unique digital ID to each asset, Digi-Tags makes it easier to manage an asset from start to finish. By analyzing data, our application delivers insights faster and more efficiently than traditional solutions."
