Stora Enso chooses Empirix for PackAgent website testing

Emphasis on positive customer experience in electronic supply chain programme

BERKSHIRE, United Kingdom, 12 June 2007 – Empirix ® Inc. which helps organisations adopt complex communications solutions with confidence, has signed a deal with one of the world’s leading paper and packaging companies, Stora Enso, based in Finland. The company is using Empirix e-TEST suite as part of a rigorous testing and monitoring programme for its new electronic brand protection, product authentication and supply chain solution, called PackAgent. The solution is aimed at several different industry sectors.

Stora Enso has partnered with Trackway Software to develop the new web-based solution which will be accessed through a secure area on the PackAgent website. PackAgent authenticates and tracks products throughout the supply chain, providing a tracking history that can be used to provide an electronic audit trail.

Marko Merenheimo, Manager of Intelligent Solutions at Stora Enso Consumer Boards comments; “Empirix e-TEST suite provides us an efficient tool to analyse the performance of our PackAgent website. It is easy to use and lets us work in a collaborative way, no matter where our experts are based. We expect this collaboration to greatly reduce the time it takes us to test specific applications.”

e-TEST suite simulates hundreds of concurrent users, executing real transactions to analyse the performance of Web applications under typical (or peak) traffic volume, and fix potential problems before the applications go live. It will also enable Stora Enso to monitor the performance of the back-end application infrastructure during load tests in order to identify bottlenecks and help further tune application performance.

Andy Buchanan, European Director, Empirix said; “Stora Enso is an excellent example of a well-established multinational company that is using ebusiness to its full potential. Because the supply chain solution offers such a critical interface, it is important that users have a positive experience with the application every time they use it. We are proud to offer Stora Enso the confidence it needs to deliver an outstanding service to partners and customers alike.”
