Accelerating innovation

Innovation is essential in business, but in large organizations it can be difficult to implement.

Through investment in digital we are ensuring we have the knowledge and expertise required to accelerate innovation across our network, finding solutions to previously unsolvable problems and making continuous development an everyday reality.

It lets us develop agile, world-class services in all divisions, improving productivity and the customer experience while, behind the scenes, it is optimizing operational efficiency by automating repetitive manual tasks and introducing data-driven decision-making.


Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do at SGS. Whether it is building close working relationships with clients or forging strategic alliances with technology companies, our partners are an essential part of what makes us thrive.

Digital is helping us optimize these partnerships. Through our robust digital partner ecosystem, we are able to take advantage of the latest innovations and disruptive technologies, incorporating them directly into our workflows to enhance operations. At the same time, we are supporting our customers with innovative, value-adding solutions that enable growth. Where markets were once closed, digital is empowering opportunity, letting our customers reach more people while building brand awareness, creating operational efficiencies and inspiring trust.

Through partnership, we are turning our vision of a better, safer and more interconnected world into a reality.

Artificial intelligence (AI)

AI is profoundly transforming the way we do business. By taking a pragmatic approach to AI, we are finding trusted solutions that improve efficiencies and drive our company forward.

We look at AI in three ways:

  • Trust – constant evolution of our service offering to build trust in AI. Solutions such as AI-related ISO standard certification and collaborations with partners like Trust Valley, mean we now stand at the forefront of AI’s integration into the modern business environment
  • Leverage – ideation sessions help us understand the changing needs of our customers and the ways AI can support them. For example, with Computer Vision we have reduced the time it takes to perform detailed analysis tasks such as the identification of welding defects or the presence of asbestos in construction
  • Usage – AI’s integration into our business processes has improved the identification of pain points and enabled us to better support our network of auditors. By improving efficiency and delivering a better service, we are able to add value for our shareholders and customers
