HUNTSVILLE, Ala., April 13, 2005 – Intergraph Corporation
Meridium APM is an enterprise-wide application that captures and aggregates asset performance data, analyzes information for optimizing performance and provides tools to enable continuous improvement of key performance indicators. The suite provides analyses to decision makers about production assets on an enterprise, plant, asset or equipment level. Meridium APM helps support decisions directly affecting plant profitability, uptime and industry competitiveness.
John Eichstaedt, executive director, Business Development, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine, said, “The agreement capitalizes on the strategic fit of Intergraph software such as SmartPlant Foundation, SmartPlant P&ID and SmartPlant Instrumentation with Meridium APM in the plant owner-operator market. The plant owner segment in Asia Pacific continues to be a growth area for Intergraph as process manufacturing seeks to maximize the value of engineering information in operations. The Meridium agreement is another step in our efforts to create relationships with complementary vendors whose software is a consumer of engineering design information.”
Brad Broughton, vice president, Business Development, Meridium, Inc., said, “With the industrial growth and economic expansion in the Asia Pacific region, Meridium’s priority is to establish local sales and support coverage in each country. Our requirement was to find a single sales channel partner with an established track record, recognized industry expertise and local representation throughout this important region. With offices and representatives in more than a dozen countries in the region and a continuous regional presence for the last 20 years, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine is the clear choice.”
