With EUR 2.54 billion in annual revenues and over 28,000 employees in around 310 sites in 39 countries, Eurofins Scientific is a leading international group of laboratories providing a unique range of analytical testing services to the pharmaceutical, food, environmental and consumer products industries and to governments.
EOL Project Manager
Eurofins is currently accelerating the deployment of standard processes across its Laboratories, building upon the OneIT 2010 programme outcomes and continued works. A key aspect of this initiative is the alignment of Eurofins Group sponsored applications like EOL (Eurofins On Line) with best of breed processes and a centralized set of key concepts and practices. Moreover, in the face of Eurofins’ impressive growth, the same applications must secure significant improvements to continue to provide the expected level of service at a much larger scale than before.
EOL is part of an eCommerce customer facing web site interfaced with other Eurofins applications that allows Eurofins to provide online services to select customers. The key technologies currently being deployed for eCommerce development are Visual Studio 2015, .NET 4.5, C#, MS SQL Server 2008/2012, Angularjs, KendoUI, ApacheMQ, SSIS and SSRS.
