Strategic Partnership with Artesys International
Partnership enhances Coreworx coverage of the capital project lifecycle
Toronto, Ontario – October 4, 2005 - Software Innovation, developer of the Coreworx project collaboration solution, today announced that it has entered into an international partnership agreement with Artesys International, developer of OPIDIS, to deliver an integrated solution for the management of project and plant information. This integrated solution will combine Coreworx and OPIDIS to securely manage information from the initial feasibility and design stages, through the engineering, procurement and construction of a capital project as well as extending past the commissioning stage and on through the operations and maintenance of the facility.
“Software Innovation has a strategic solution in Coreworx that is well suited to managing information for capital projects,” notes Daniel Coquelin, CEO of Artesys International. “Combining Coreworx with OPIDIS will help companies to more effectively manage information and documents throughout the entire project and facility lifecycle. This translates into reduced risk, improved efficiencies and a more reliable flow of information from the initial engineering phases through to the ongoing operations and maintenance of a facility. The combined solution will deliver value to our clients that represents more than the sum of its parts.”
Together, Coreworx and OPIDIS address some of the key challenges facing companies engaged in large capital projects regarding the ability to control the flow of engineering information across global project teams and job sites throughout the various phases of a capital project, from initial feasibility through to ongoing operations. In particular, the gap often found in the “turnover” from commissioning to plant operations will be eliminated, freeing owners from the associated risk and delays.
“This partnership with Artesys International allows us to expand the value proposition of Coreworx through the complete lifecycle of a facility,” said Randall Howard, CEO of Software Innovation. “We are targeting key partners that serve our markets and Artesys International was an important component of this strategy. Rather than ‘throwing data over the wall’ from the design and engineering team at the commissioning phase, integration to Artesys International’s OPIDIS solution will enable us to provide a seamless transition from the design and construction of a facility on through to the ongoing maintenance and support.”
