LAKE FOREST, Calif., Jan. 7, 2004 — SimSci-Esscor, an operating unit of Invensys plc, recently announced it plans to provide access to its Upstream Optimization Suite and its Process Engineering Suite (PES) solutions for petrochemical and energy companies via the Internet.
On-demand distribution of the industrial software simulation and optimization products will be offered to current SimSci-Esscor customers on a monthly trial and subscription basis through PetrisWINDS NOW!à¢â€ž-, an application services provider (ASP) to the oil, gas and energy industries. Customers can evaluate and benefit from the capabilities and value offered by PES and optimization suite products through Petris’ Web-based environment.
“Aligning with an experienced service provider like Petris, SimSci-Esscor is able to reach a much broader market and demonstrate how its products can reduce the internal support requirements of our customers while extending the life of their existing hardware,” said Marty Kurowski, SimSci-Esscor’s vice president of marketing. “By simplifying the method of offering immediate access to our applications, we also enable our customers to reduce their capital expenditures while making these solutions an integral part of a more efficient operational process.”
