Cadmatic, a developer of intelligent 3D-based design, engineering and information management software for the marine and plant industries, and Eurocon SiteBase, a provider of a structured information management platform to control projects, plants and sites, recently announced their collaboration.
“We are not competitors, but our software solutions complement each other for the benefit of end customers,” says Sami Koponen, vice-president of plant industry at Cadmatic. “There’s plenty of synergy to share between the companies and, in this case, one plus one is definitely more than two, as we are able to create additional customer value for the plant design and management processes. The more automated and streamlined data exchange will reduce the amount of manual labour and therefore the risk of human errors, making the systems much faster to use together.”
The two companies initially partnered several years ago while in development meetings with Swedish pulp and paper clients.
“These industries use both SiteBase and Cadmatic, so we initiated a possible integration between our products. Recently this has evolved into bidirectional communication where new data can be entered and exchanged in either software,” says Mikael Lindqvist, CEO of Eurocon SiteBase AB.
Lindqvist says the joint platform will help existing customers and attract new ones, especially in the Nordics.
“SiteBase provides a solution for plant owners to flow data from project to plant in operation and further to maintenance systems. At this stage, we can exchange data, drawings and models between our tools. Ultimately the plant owners will be able to send data to their maintenance systems.”
