AVEVA Announces Stronger Partnership With Z+F

Cambridge, England, January 18 — AVEVA (LSE:AVV) and Z+F are pleased to announce a stronger technical and commercial partnership, focused on delivering new levels of integration and productivity between laser scanning, detailed design and asset management.

Z+F specializes in 3D laser scanning and was one of the first companies to release a phase based laser scanner and subsequently invented the world’s 1st stand alone 3D laser scanner.

AVEVA’s stronger technical partnership with Z+F will enable AVEVA and Z+F to transform the efficiency of producing intelligent 3D CAD models from laser data, drastically reducing the time and cost of producing intelligent AVEVA PDMS 3D models.

Working together will also allow high definition, photo-realistic laser images to be quickly and easily hot-spotted, linked to other plant data and accessed over the web in AVEVA’s asset information management solution AVEVA NET.

Derek Middlemas, Group Operations Director of AVEVA, comments: "We are delighted to strengthen our relationship with Z+F. Owner Operators are always looking for ways to better manage their assets. ‘As-is’ 3D models are becoming a popular method of achieving this aim, however for many this is still not viable due to the time and costs involved creating ‘as-is’ 3D models. Working with Z+F, AVEVA will offer a solution which significantly reduces the time and cost of producing ‘as-is’ 3D models, making 3D models accessible to all asset management programs."

Z+F and AVEVA will be exhibiting at the SPAR 2010 conference, which aims to provide professionals with fresh information and insights about the 3D imaging industry.
