Metso collaborates with Hexagon to expedite valve projects' data exchange
Metso Corporation's press release on September 12, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. EEST
Metso's valves business has joined forces with Hexagon PPM to ramp up its valve quotation efficiency. The agreement complements Metso's digital quotation tools, and it will enhance the efficient exchange of inquiry, quotation and project execution data between Metso and its engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) customers who use Hexagon PPM's SmartPlant and Smart software suites.
Oscar Bronsveld, responsible for Global Project Sales at Metso's Valves business area, says, "We have long customer relationships with the major EPC companies globally. The majority of our EPC customers catering for the oil & gas and petrochemical industries use the Smart Instrumentation software suite. Our target is to improve our responsiveness and bring value to them by saving them precious engineering hours in data processing."
Metso's existing digital valve project quotation tool will be integrated with Smart Instrumentation. This integration will provide a bi-directional data exchange capability with the EPCs, allowing a reduction in the quotation processing time and an increase in accuracy when configuring and documenting projects in the quotation phases. The EPCs will benefit from speedy quotations and time savings produced by the efficient data entry processes.
"Our vision is to provide our clients with a seamless customer experience by combining the power of Metso's digital tools, knowledge of the end customers' technical needs and process requirements together with Hexagon's solid experience in engineering and information software development," says Rashmi Kasat, VP, Head of Digital Business Development at Metso.
