Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 23, 2005
Microgeo S.A., a provider of IT solutions for the engineering environment, SYNAPSIS, a provider of business management solutions and consulting services to public sector institutions, and Cyco Software, a leading provider of Engineering Data Management (EDM) solutions, announced today that Chilectra S.A. has selected to implement Cyco AutoManager Meridian to manage all of its engineering documentation. Chilectra is the largest electric utility in Chile providing power to both residents and businesses.
For the last 82 years, Chilectra has been delivering electricity to the 33 boroughs in the metropolitan region of Santiago, Chile's capital. The company serves more than 1,3 million customers that make up approximately 45% of the Chilean energy market. Cyco AutoManager Meridian provides the company secure, timely and reliable access to the thousands of drawings that map out Chilectra's power grid.
With Cyco AutoManager Meridian, the company maintains consistency between the as-built records in the central document database and work in progress documentation out in the field. In case of an emergency or maintenance, the software delivers immediate access to the right information. In addition, it provides secure access to people in the entire organization who need to keep abreast of engineering changes and plan infrastructure developments.
"We are extremely pleased with Cyco AutoManager Meridian," says Jose Antonio Perez, Document Management Administrator with Chilectra. "It helps us to make sure we are always working with the correct version of important infrastructure drawings, and it provides us with a quick overview of entire projects."
The implementation of Cyco AutoManager Meridian at Chilectra marks another successful collaboration between Microgeo, SYNAPSIS and Cyco Software. Chilectra has outsourced all of its information technology needs to SYNAPSIS. The consulting firm worked with Microgeo to implement a customized engineering data management solution for Chilectra with Cyco AutoManager Meridian. "There is a natural fit between our companies," says Hector Tapia, Project Director with SYNAPSIS. Alejandro Leniz, Head of Microgeo's data management group, fully agrees. "We're looking forward to working with Cyco Software and SYNAPSIS to continue to deliver state-of-the-art data management products and services to satisfy demand in South America's electrical market."
