Information about VIOL 3 in English

From VIOL 2 to VIOL 3

The current VIOL will be phased out and replaced by a next generation system called VIOL 3. Go Live for VIOL 3 is May 2, 2025.

VIOL 3 is not an upgrade of VIOL 2. It is a completely new business system where interfaces and the way of working in the system involve major changes and require planning. Therefore, it is important that you familiarize yourself with the new business system to know how to work.

As a customer, you will be able to take part in what the current VIOL offers, but with some differences in what the objects are called and how they are handled. In VIOL 3, Biometria has tried to keep the services we offer together to a greater extent, although there may still be different inputs depending on what you as a user want to achieve.

The change to VIOL 3 is required and it is crucial that all actors in the business chain cooperate to plan how the transition to VIOL 3 should look like.

Background

The current VIOL 2 system was built in the late 90s with the aim of reporting quantity and monetary value of goods in the forest wood supply chain. Functionality has been continuously added to the system which has resulted in a very complex software. Among other things, it is no longer viable to develop the VIOL 2 system further or to combine data from different functionalities.

Biometria, which is a member-owned company, has therefore been commissioned by its Board to develop a new VIOL system, VIOL 3, which will result in, among other things, increased business benefit and a safer development of our services.
