Scapa Healthcare (formerly know as Systagenix) offers a complete range of wound healing products to meet the wound care needs of health professionals. The companies long-standing commitment to skin and wound care began with the development of the first ready-made, ready-to-use surgical dressing in the mid-1880s and continues today with innovative wound care treatments developed by the experienced team of R&D Scientists at the Gargrave Centre of Excellence for Wound Healing in North Yorkshire. Production is based at the Gargrave site a small village near to the market town of Skipton, North Yorkshire. A variety of production processes are in use within the production facility from Sterilisation to Freeze Drying processes through to packaging and eventual product distribution.
To ensure product consistency a variety of PC based control systems provide round the clock process monitoring, control and reporting for industry compliance. The site looked to AVS to provide a solid solution to enable the migration to newer hardware of older systems on site. In addition the system had to provide a consistent backup routine for all process data and process specific SCADA applications and provide fast deployment of any application in the event of a system failure. AVS ensures all applications and data are securely backed up on a sequential basis the AVS server component has been deployed in Systagenix's offsite data centre hosting ESXi server to provide a further secure environment for the companies production assets.
