M.A.C. Solutions, developer of the ProcessVue® suite of alarm management software, has announced a partnership agreement with Aquarius Software, a provider of industrial automation software for the manufacturing, oil & gas, biofuel and power generation markets in Brazil
Established in 1984, Aquarius Software is a rapidly growing industrial automation software provider based in Brazil. The company has gained an enviable reputation in the South American market for providing first class technical expertise on industrial automation software projects in a range of industries including oil & gas, energy, biofuels, power generation, pharmaceuticals and other process manufacturing industries.
The agreement with M.A.C. Solutions enables Aquarius Software to sell and support ProcessVue® in Brazil. ProcessVue® is a suite of software that provides clear, relevant and prioritised information to plant operators, supervisors and managers, enabling them to make better-informed decisions about their processes and plant safety. The software combines the latest communication, data logging and reporting technologies with more than 25 years’ experience in design and implementation of Alarm Management software.
John Pritchard, Managing Director of M.A.C. Solutions commented: “The agreement with Aquarius is part of a much wider strategic initiative at M.A.C. Solutions to increase our presence in the South American and North American markets. Whilst ProcessVue® already has a strong customer base in Europe and in parts of the US, Aquarius will open up new markets for us in Brazil, a key region, particularly in terms of its oil & gas, power generation and petrochemicals companies that are based there.”
“Aquarius has a proven track record in these markets. The company has a talented, technical sales and support staff, who understand their customers’ needs and who have many years’ experience in industrial automation consultancy, software training and support,” added Pritchard.
Mario Simas, Managing Director at Aquarius Software agreed: “We are very excited about the agreement with M.A.C. Solutions, as it enables us to offer a premium software product such as ProcessVue® to our existing and new customers in Brazil. There is now an increasing need amongst our customers to focus on alarms and alarm management. ProcessVue® will therefore appeal to a wide range of our process industry customers, particularly in the oil & gas, petrochemicals, energy, and power generation industries.”
