AVEVA Group plc (LSE: AVV) one of the world's leading providers of engineering design and information management solutions for the plant, power and marine industries, today announced it has signed a contract with Promon Engenharia to provide the Brazilian engineering company with its AVEVA NET solution to manage their complex information assets. The corporate-wide contract comes after a comprehensive benchmark testing process that AVEVA successfully completed in one-third of the time allotted.
Mr. Antonio Vellasco, Systems Director for Promon said, “After the pilot we found that AVEVA NET covered our requirements assuring information correctness, completeness and access to information, saving us costs and man hours as a result. We now have new workflow architecture for Promon with AVEVA NET integrating our authoring tools via gateways. Having all the engineering information published to a central data management environment, we can better use the tools and information for executing complex projects.”
AVEVA NET is a powerful, ISO 15926-compliant information management solution that automatically controls, links, evaluates and makes available all types of engineering and associated data and documents, regardless of application and format. AVEVA NET can dramatically reduce the time spent manually searching for information and its ability to link related items of information together have been proven to save businesses millions in productivity, decision making and rework.
Promon Engenharia selected AVEVA NET as their Information Integration hub after running a comprehensive benchmark program. The three-month program compared AVEVA NET with other competing systems. AVEVA completed the program in just one month, outperforming the competition on technology and time of implementation.
Mr. Rogerio Pinto, Systems Manager for Promon said, “Promon has a complex scenario, where we use software from different vendors, and with AVEVA NET we are now able to integrate all of these applications faster. Having accurate and rapid access to information, we are reducing our overall engineering manhours. AVEVA NET offers business benefits of defining and maintaining information integrity in an EPC environment.”
Santiago Pena, AVEVA’s Vice President for Latin America said, “The challenge presented by Promon motivated all of the team to prove that AVEVA NET can cope even with the most demanding requirements. Having a prestigious customer such as Promon as a pioneer for our AVEVA NET software and services in Brazil reinforces the compelling business and engineering benefits that AVEVA NET brings to our owner operator and EPC customers.”
