HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading enterprise engineering and capital project management software providers Intergraph® and Skire have formed a strategic partnership to enable engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) companies and owner-operators to integrate their engineering enterprise with project management and enterprise accounting systems for comprehensive project financial visibility into today's multi-billion dollar CAPEX projects. As part of this strategic initiative, Intergraph is now the exclusive distributor of Skire's Unifier™ solution in the U.S. and Canadian process, power and marine markets. Intergraph will begin working with clients to identify key opportunities where they can use Skire's project management solution (Unifier) and where they can better integrate Unifier within the engineering enterprise.
Intergraph is a global leading provider of enterprise engineering for the design, construction and operation of plants, ships and offshore facilities. Skire is the leading provider of capital program, facilities, real estate, and project portfolio management software solutions used by global Fortune 1000 companies, government agencies and educational institutions for managing billions of dollars in capital programs, real estate and IT portfolios.
"By combining the industry's leading enterprise engineering, design and build project solutions, including our new SmartPlant Construction solution, with Skire's project and cost management capabilities, Intergraph now offers EPCs and owner-operators a fully integrated approach to quickly, confidently and cost-effectively execute any project," said Gerhard Sallinger, president of the Intergraph Process, Power & Marine division.
"Traditionally, companies have lacked complete visibility into project management business processes because their data resided in separate, disjointed systems," said Massy Mehdipour, chief executive officer of Skire. "We are delighted to align with an industry leader in enterprise engineering software to offer users a seamless end-to-end solution to mitigate risk and substantially reduce project cost."
