Whessoe Engineering Limited Enhances Engineering Document Management with Intergraph® SmartPlant® Foundation16 February 2017
HUNTSVILLE, Ala., January 24, 2017
Whessoe Engineering Limited, a global technology and engineering company, has implemented Intergraph® SmartPlant® Foundation to modernize engineering information management.
As a top global engineering and technology company, Whessoe Engineering Limited’s project scope has been growing both in complexity and geographical diversity. The company was searching for a modern engineering information management system that offered flexibility and provided a centralized database where all the engineering information, data, and documents could be saved. Whessoe Engineering Limited also was keen to improve data security, integrity and the ability to more efficiently locate engineering information.
As a user of Intergraph Process, Power & Marine 2D schematics and 3D design software, Whessoe Engineering Limited was familiar with the high quality and ease-of-use of the Intergraph suite of products. SmartPlant Foundation was chosen to replace the existing in-house software for its document management capabilities and the potential for creating a complete and integrated information management system in the future. In addition, the integration capability and the ability to enable sharing of engineering data across all engineering platforms was paramount for the company.
Whessoe Engineering Limited currently uses Intergraph software on a global Project Management Consultation project covering multiple geographies, including South Korea, the Middle East and the United Kingdom. The company will be building all of its future projects on the SmartPlant Foundation platform.
Commenting on the decision to select Intergraph’s engineering information management solution as their in-house engineering information management system, Len Taylor, CEO, Whessoe Engineering Limited said, “SmartPlant Foundation has exceeded our expectations. We have been particularly impressed with how quickly we can set up new projects and the assistance provided by the team at Intergraph who have helped make the transition as smooth as possible.”
Mattias Stenberg, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine president, said, “I am pleased to see how we helped Whessoe Engineering to improve data security and integrity by supporting the modernization of its engineering information management.”
