ITHOS Information Network is a prominent provider of regulatory compliance software and services for the cosmetic, personal care, and chemical industries.

Leveraging a cloud-based platform, the ITHOS Information Network integrates regulatory expertise with cutting-edge software tools, facilitating streamlined compliance processes, product formulation assessments, regulatory report generation, and access to pertinent regulatory data.

Problem Statementtitle icon

In the past, businesses seeking to enter the cosmetic industry encountered various hurdles concerning regulatory compliance, technical specifications, and adhering to industry best practices. This crucial information is essential for those involved in the development or implementation of cosmetic solutions.

While a plethora of cosmetic-related information is available online, it is often scattered across multiple websites and sources, making it challenging to locate the necessary data. Additionally, identifying reliable suppliers for these products can prove to be a daunting task.

The current infrastructure of IIN has several notable shortcomings, including a lack of standardization, security vulnerabilities, complexity, the absence of disaster recovery systems, limitations in scalability and reliability, and high expenses.

Recognizing the importance of addressing these issues, ITHOS sought a dependable partner with expertise in constructing secure and sustainable cloud-based systems to collaborate and find effective solutions. As a result, ITHOS enlisted CloseLoop's assistance to propose a new architecture hosted on AWS, aiming to mitigate these challenges while ensuring minimal disruption during the transition.

Closeloop's consultants worked closely with ITHOS to develop a technical architecture that fulfilled these needs.

  • Development: Closeloop's developers collaborated with ITHOS's team to build the core components of the IIN solution, encompassing the data model, APIs, and user interface.

These functionalities allow businesses to store and manage cosmetics-related documents, generate compliance reports demonstrating regulatory adherence, and connect with relevant suppliers.

  • Testing: Closeloop's QA team conducted rigorous testing of the IIN solution to ensure it aligned with ITHOS's requirements and identified any potential defects. This encompassed both functional and security testing, guaranteeing that the IIN solution met ITHOS's demands and upheld robust security measures.

  • AWS Migration: Closeloop's deployment team worked alongside ITHOS to successfully deploy the IIN solution on AWS Cloud. The process involved configuring the solution on ITHOS's servers and ensuring accessibility for users.
