Process control engineering firm ZIO Automation, Inc., hires marketing consulting firm eXubrio, LLC, to develop its marketing plan and to launch its new software suite.

Buffalo, NY – February 20, 2003 – ZIO Automation, Inc., today announced its decision to use consulting firm eXubrio, LLC, to develop the business plan to launch its new manufacturing process plant automation software suite – SequenceMaster. ZIO Automation provides integrated manufacturing engineering solutions.

“We developed the SequenceMaster software suite to address problems our process plant customers faced,” said Steve Shelton, President of ZIO Automation. “With help from the eXubrio team, we plan to introduce SequenceMaster software to the process industry this summer.”

“ZIO has created an excellent software suite to automate sequential production processes,” Paul McAfee, Principal and co-Founder of eXubrio, explained. “We are pleased to be asked to help ZIO Automation develop their SequenceMaster software business model, business plan, and sales & marketing plans.”

Some of the benefits process engineering departments will realize from the SequenceMaster suite include the ability to make on-site process changes in seconds, and to make specification changes with very little backtracking. They will be able to reduce a typical two-week debug cycle to one day. Controls engineering departments can reduce new process development time by 50% - 90% using SequenceMaster software.

“This suite of development tools allows automation engineers to create control system logic and sequences rapidly, from a spreadsheet-based sequence chart and an interactive device database,” Shelton added. “The SequenceMaster suite documents changes accurately, providing traceability which helps to maintain quality standards and meet regulatory requirements.”
