April 12, 2018

​SGS has launched its first Digital Campus in Seattle, Washington, USA.

Based in a bustling co-working office space, where the SGS team will be exposed to many new initiatives and start-ups, the Digital Campus group will work on new initiatives and engage with innovative ecosystems, external and internal, to develop new business offerings.

The SGS Digital Campus aims to make the company a more engaging, connected, open and agile business focusing on four main pillars: e-commerce, platforms, consumer services and analytics.

"The SGS Digital Campus supports the company's vision of providing best-in-class and innovative services in inspection, verification, testing and certification," said Fred Herren, Senior Vice President Digital & Innovation. "With this first campus we look at making our work simpler, better and faster, to enhance the customer experience, and to add value for existing and future clients. We will also be looking to attract talent around topics such as data science, e-commerce and marketplaces, as well as supporting some of the innovations generated around the Group. We expect to follow this model by setting up similar locations in Asia and Europe."
