HUNTSVILLE, Ala., June 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Performance Contractors, Inc. of Baton Rouge, La., a provider of all phases of industrial construction from site preparation through start-up, has selected Intergraph® SmartPlant® Materials for materials management on all of its upcoming projects, both small and large, including one of the largest the company has ever undertaken.
Performance Contractors, Inc. has previously used Intergraph SmartPlant Spoolgen®, a proven, industrial-strength application that enables the creation of piping isometric drawings for fabrication and erection from the design created during the detail engineering phase of projects. During a thorough consultation with Intergraph product experts about Spoolgen use, Performance Contractors identified a challenge within its material management process and decided to purchase and implement SmartPlant Materials, Intergraph's best-in-class integrated solution for life cycle material, supply chain and subcontract management.
SmartPlant Materials is the only solution available on the market that fully supports the unique materials management processes needed in the process, power and marine industries. Performance Contractors chose SmartPlant Materials to improve reporting, materials management and procurement, resulting in a reduction of time and materials to complete projects, fewer errors and more transparency, better quality assurance and control, and cost savings.
