AVEVA Opens a Global Customer Centre in Houston, Texas

HOUSTON : AVEVA Group plc is making a significant investment in facilities and infrastructure by building a state-of-the art visualization centre at its Americas headquarters in Houston, Texas. The AVEVA Business Performance Centre sets a new standard for the software engineering industry by offering a true immersive environment where customers can simulate how AVEVA solutions can transform their businesses.

The AVEVA Business Performance Centre is equipped to demonstrate global design, engineering, construction and operation solutions for the process, power, oil & gas and shipbuilding industries. The decision to develop the Centre aligns with AVEVA's commitment for continual progression in software engineering technologies.

"The AVEVA Business Performance Centre provides us with a powerful simulation environment to showcase our capabilities and competitive advantages," said William Muldoon, Executive Vice President of North America, AVEVA Inc. "I am very excited to offer this new facility to our customers and partners knowing that this immersive approach will help transform major projects and set new standards."

With a customer-centric approach to business, AVEVA realizes today's market requires the ability to clearly differentiate competitive solutions. So the Centre won't simply be an executive briefing facility rather it will be a "virtual design center" tailored to help customers position their companies for future success using a secure collaborative design environment to fuel creativity and innovation while simultaneously addressing their information management requirements.

"AVEVA is addressing a new generation of customers who prefer to evaluate software in a real world, interactive environment rather than attending trade shows," adds Mr. Muldoon. "AVEVA's enabling technology is robust and feature-rich, so our solutions are perfectly suited for a visualization environment."

The AVEVA Business Performance Centre opens March 1, 2010. For its grand opening, AVEVA is holding numerous events for owner operators and engineering procurement customers.
