Sapienza Consulting Awarded 3 Years Contract by Septentrio NV

Noordwijk, 1 February 2016 – Sapienza Consulting today announces it has been awarded a 3-year contract to supply the ECLIPSE suite and its professional services to Septentrio NV.

Septentrio NV joins the growing list of successful European SMEs that benefit from adopting several modules of the ECLIPSE suite in their space projects management processes.

In particular Septentrio NV will take advantage of the Document Configuration & Change Management (DCCM), the Review Items of Discrepancy (eRID) and Action Items Manager (AIM) modules.

Andrea Bennetti, Group Commercial Director at Sapienza Consulting said:

We are proud to welcome on board Septentrio NV. This procurement of the ECLIPSE suite follows an accelerating standardisation trend which now sees the ECLIPSE suite being selected by a fast growing number of institutional and industrial space sector players. We are very glad to see this trend develop, and we hope it will help us fulfil our goal to bring further standardization to the space sector through our ECLIPSE Space project support software and services.

ECLIPSE is the only collaborative suite of integrated applications designed with the invaluable experience of space industry professionals for use by European space sector organisations ranging from Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) all the way to International Agencies.

The ECLIPSE Suite helps space project and mission teams achieve higher efficiency, better control and compliance to ECSS standards in key project and business areas such as:

Project Management (PM)

Product Assurance (PA)

Configuration Management (CM)

Quality Assurance (QA)

The DCCM module fulfils all the document configuration requirements of a space project. All the integrated functions are tailored specifically for the space industry’s needs and best practises. Furthermore, it supports the document’s entire evolution (i.e. creation, modification, evolution and distribution) throughout its lifecycle.

eRID supports space project and mission teams through the preparation, set-up, management and control of formal project and mission reviews. The eRID application provides the means for project review participants to access deliverable data packs, contractual or technical baselines as well as requirements documentation via the web. eRID supports the complete work flow of the approval and review process, and the assignment and lifecycle management of actions and eventual closure of RIDs in accordance with the ECCS standards.

AIM is a web-based application that allows the creation, allocation, monitoring and tracking of Action Items (AIs) and their associated information across small and large project teams alike. Each Action Item can be allocated to an Actionee and multiple Contributors, who can access and contribute to the Action Item’s progress, completion and closure via the web, in accordance to security permissions. Each AI enables all those involved to collaborate via a thread-based discussion capability which enables additional information to be provided in the form of video, images or documentation attachments.
