Intergraph is pleased to announce a new strategic relationship with eVision Industry Software, a leader in the field of operational safety systems that complement Intergraph’s expertise in asset lifecycle information management. The alliance provides a framework for the companies to integrate their solutions to improve the effectiveness and reduce the risk of work processes conducted on process, power and marine facilities.

The valuable interoperability between Intergraph SmartPlant® Fusion and SmartPlant Enterprise for Owner Operators (SPO), and eVision’s operational safety solutions underline the importance of managing an asset’s lifecycle information and then leveraging trustworthy technical data in day-to-day operations. Both companies’ global customers will benefit from increased access to these complementary solutions, bringing value beyond their individual use.

"We are extremely excited to be working with Intergraph to further enhance our solutions with access to high-quality asset information and leading edge 3D visualisation capabilities. This will further increase operations productivity and reduce risk for facility operations processes," said Neil Currie, chief product officer at eVision.

Patrick Holcomb, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine’s executive vice-president of global business development and marketing, said: "Owner operators increasingly recognise the value of the digital asset, both for improving return on capital employed (ROCE) and health, safety and environmental assurance.

"Interoperability between Intergraph and eVision offers synergistic benefits to visualise work in the field, providing valuable work process automation supported by accurate technical asset information."

This collaboration will be highlighted in a keynote session during HxGN Live 2015, Hexagon’s international user conference, in Las Vegas, US. The keynote will show how integration between Intergraph asset lifecycle information solutions and eVision solutions supports improved effectiveness for safety critical operations work processes, including permit to work, risk assessment and the planning and execution of equipment isolations.

Intergraph technical user forum (TUF) LinkedIn groups provide an online discussion forum for year-round networking between users.
