Long-lasting partnership generates comprehensive measuring data management

Labkotec is a Finnish pioneer of IoT thinking and solutions. Gofore and Labkotec have been partners in developing comprehensive measuring data management since 2005.

Finnish measuring and monitoring technology company Labkotec has been delivering cutting-edge solutions for industries and municipalities for over 50 years. Labkotec’s equipment are used in gas and pumping stations, raw material storage facilities and oil separators.

In the 21st century, Labkotec have steered their business towards a comprehensive measuring solution service. First launched in 1999, the LabkoNet platform was developed to meet the needs of Labkotec’s customers.

Especially small businesses and operators often lack the resources to perform large-scale measuring data management on their own. Labkotec’s goal was to provide a comprehensive data tracking service that enables their customers to receive up-to-date measuring information and alarms in one integrated system.

”Labkotec was a pioneer in Internet of Things (IoT) and Intelligent Industry ideologies long before these terms became mainstream. Early on, they had a clear vision on how to produce actual value for their customers with better data management,” Gofore’s Key Account Owner Heikki Malmlund says.

High quality over three decades

Gofore’s and Labkotec’s partnership began in 2005 with LabkoNet’s third iteration. The result of a one-year development project, the new and improved LabkoNet proved to be a lasting solution.

“Gofore convinced us with their expertise, commitment and customer understanding. They strove for high quality right from the start. This really showed in the lifespan of LabkoNet’s third version – the platform was in operation up until 2021,” Labkotec’s Product Manager Jukka Korhonen says.

The platform’s latest version is built on Google’s cloud architecture and was developed with a special emphasis on interface design and mobile usage. The development project required Gofore’s complete competence from customer interviews, security and testing automation all the way to a full stack implementation.

”The new LabkoNet enables much more sophisticated data refinement. In addition to collecting and presenting data, LabkoNet can now calculate forecasts that help make our customers’ work more anticipatory,” Jukka Korhonen highlights.

Strategic partnership creates new service models

LabkoNet’s cloud architecture makes continuous development and scaling easy. The long partnership between Labkotec and Gofore has deepened and expanded to a strategic level over the years.

”Our technical ability and Labkotec’s business expertise complement each other very well. Together we can create new service models that generate true value for LabkoNet users,” Gofore’s Heikki Malmlund says.

“It has been a pleasure to see Gofore’s development and growth during our long collaboration. Their work has always been rooted in a solution-oriented and proactive approach which has ensured that we have always been able to tackle challenges together,” Jukka Korhonen says.
