Lloyds Register QMS Auditors now on the SOLV® Team 3rd August 2021

As part of our ongoing staff development program, we recently put two of our engineers through the Lloyds Register, CQI and IRCA Certified QMS Lead Auditor Training Course, based on ISO9001:2015, to assist in our busy Measurement and Allocation system audit program for our global customers. The COVID safe course was attended by our Engineers; Fiona Tinnion and Gareth Lake.

Any of you that have completed this course will know its not a walk in the park, and has plenty of homework designed to challenge the would-be Auditor. One of their biggest takeaways from the course was the coaching of how to ask questions. Engineers are naturally factual by their personality type, so the importance of asking OPEN questions during audits was particularly enlightening for both of them. So if Fiona or Gareth turn up to audit one of your systems, be prepared to answer why you changed that orifice plate last year, not just did you!

AT SOLV®, we can perform audits of both Measurement and Allocation systems at both the Design and Operational phases of the system life cycle. Ensuring compliance with agreed measurement standards and contractual conditions. Our work takes us around the world and recent highlights include North America, the Middle and Far East.

COVID-19 27th March 2020

Due to the impact of the Covid-19 virus we have now reverted to home working for all our employees. We do not foresee this causing any interruption to our customer support. We would like to reassure all SOLV® and FLOWSOLV® customers that telephone calls and emails will continue to be answered as normal and with video conferencing also available when required for virtual face-to-face meetings.

We envisage that this will be our new ‘normal’ way of working for at least the next 12 weeks.

We will continue to respond as the situation develops. Should you need to contact us for FLOWSOLV® Support or SOLV® consultancy work, please do not hesitate to do so in the normal way.

Keep safe and well.

Support for Windows® XP 18th January 2019

As you may be aware, Microsoft stopped supporting its XP operating system some years ago. This has lead to a range of issues for software developers like SOLV®, notably in the area of security.

We have now reached the point where supporting Windows XP negatively impacts the development of FLOWSOLV® and its user experience. We are therefore no longer able to support new FLOWSOLV® licence installations for Windows XP operating systems.

If you are running FLOWSOLV® on Windows XP we will still assist with reregistration and reinstallation as a result from a change of PC. However, we will not be able to offer any further installation assistance.

We do not recommend installing a new copy of FLOWSOLV® V5.1 or higher on a Windows XP system
