Innovation

For almost 60 years GEOTEST has been searching for and finding suitable solutions for both common and unusual problems in applied geology. In doing so, we constantly take on new challenges.

This is how new, creative, field-tested ideas and innovative solutions have been and continue to be developed by our company.

Why is innovation part of our philosophy? Because it makes our products and services more efficient, more accurate and simply better. This makes us not only a leading provider in applied geosciences, but also an attractive employer.

There’s a way to do it better. Find it.

Developed by GEOTEST…

What works well for our company often makes life easier for others as well. After we have tested our innovations thoroughly, we make them available to our customers – and develop them further according to their wishes and needs.

FeldApp

The digital field notebook for outdoor professionals. Designed to ensure consistent data collection.

ExploSKI

Digital explosives management: Maintain an overview of incoming and outgoing explosives , as well as inventory.

GEO.Immobilien

Digital property management: Accurately track the condition of your properties - anytime and from anywhere.

Natural Hazards Radar

The online analysis tool for calculating site-specific natural hazards throughout Switzerland.


GEOTEST in research

We are regularly involved in scientific research groups, together with various project partners, in order to advance scientific knowledge. Many GEOTEST employees also hold teaching positions at universities. In this way – for example by conceiving and supervising master’s and doctoral theses –new information based on the latest research flows back to us on a regular basis.

GEOL_BIM

We are proud to be part of the InnoSuisse project GEOL_BIM, in order to develop the foundations for a geological BIM model. In cooperation with the other project partners, our experts contribute a great deal of knowledge and real-world examples to the project, together with great enthusiasm for digitising the sub-surface.

PERMA-XT

Together with the University of Fribourg, we are developing a software within the framework of an InnoSuisse project, which makes it possible to calculate the melting of permafrost ice underground. The calculation algorithm is calibrated using various data on energy flow, meteorological parameters and runoff.

Publications

In the context of diverse project assignments, we are constantly engaged in pioneering work. The knowledge gained from this work is later incorporated into scientific publications.
