With over 48,000 employees around the world, and annual revenues of over $6 billion, WSP are without question one of the world’s leading professional service consultancies.
Work in the chemical engineering and consultancy sector is difficult, not least because of the extremely high research and development costs, but also thanks to the tightly governed health and safety regulations, which must always be followed to the letter.
Meeting these regulations can prove much more difficult when you operate all over the world, with teams collaborating on projects across countries, continents and time zones. This type of globalised operation is what makes WSP so successful, yet also adds considerable complexity to daily procedures.
So how do you take control of this geographical dispersion, maintaining a centralised chemical database that meets the various regulations imposed on this industry? Secure, centralised access to your critical data is the key, allowing many users to have input on the same datasets from anywhere in the world.
We’ve been proudly working with WSP since 2011, providing them with robust, high-performance specialist hosting services, which deliver their hosted IUCLID and CHESAR platforms.
These platforms allow operators in this space to more easily meet the strict REACH/OECD/HPV/EU regulations which govern chemical substance research, to ensure the highest possible standards of safety.
By centralising these systems for WSP, we have enabled a far greater level of agility in their workflow, and the complete removal of duplicate data issues which often plague decentralised database systems.
The software itself is deployed on a high-availability private cloud platform, which provides scalable, resilient hosting services to WSP users around the clock, with our expert in-house support supplementing their own capabilities.
The importance of this hosted service to WSP is not only driven by regulatory considerations, but also from a project delivery perspective. Working on some of the world’s largest engineering and environmental projects naturally carries with it considerable operational challenges, which are dramatically eased through the effective use of this centralised technology.
The speed at which the WSP team can now work through projects collaboratively is nothing short of ground-breaking, ensuring they maintain their position as the premier professional services outfit in the world.
Helping a large, globally recognised industry leader such as WSP is a source of great pride to Netwise. We now deploy a collection of related services for them as they continue to grow and evolve, working on some of the most significant engineering and environmental projects in the world.
WSP continue to lead the way in their respective field, and we look forward to offering them continued support as they develop their service set further.
