The Idea of an All-in-One Solution
This customer story concern a collaboration on a product development-project based on the idea of an all-in-one solution. Our collaboration with DEIF began when they were in need of a product development. Viking Software had the responsibility of developing and visualizing a new illuminated indicator display series (XDi) as a modern graphical user-interface. Since then, Viking Software were invited to take part in finishing a new release of the XDi series due to a tight deadline.
About the customer
DEIF is a supplying partner within Marine/Offshore, Wind-power and Land-power industry, and they have until recently been producing and selling traditional mechanical scales and pointers such as bridge instruments for the maritime industry. Partly inspired by the market development, motivated by customers need for new modern solutions and DEIF’s own desire to develop the product range, the idea of an all-in-one solution evolved.
Our first collaboration
DEIF contacted Viking Software in order to have the idea developed and visualized. The new illuminated indicator display series (XDi) was developed as a modern graphical user-interface, which amongst many benefits (see bullet points above) optimized the product range from 250 units down to 3 different displays sizes .
A familiar face
A few years after launching the XDi series, DEIF asked Viking Software to take part in finishing a new release of the XDi software due to a tight deadline, and given the expertise and familiarity that Viking Software holds, Viking Software started with only a day’s notice and finished in time for the new release to be launched.
The final result of the collaboration is illustrated below, where the XDI is used in different ways.
