SMARTPLANT® CLOUD BENEFITS FOR EPCs INDUSTRY PRESSURES We understand today’s challenges and how they affect engineering, procurement, and construction firms: • Energy demands are growing at an incredible pace.

You already use data-centric applications like SmartPlant P&ID, SmartPlant Instrumentation, and Intergraph Smart™ 3D, because intelligent data has tremendous value in your work processes and for populating both your project’s and your client’s operational systems. • Project sizes require multiple partners. Having projects in the cloud offers you many advantages over traditional implementations.

SmartPlant Cloud can provide earlier visibility into partners’ deliverables, offering the opportunity to fix any issues earlier in the process, reducing rework and saving schedule. SOLUTION STRATEGIES Increased Quality, Minimized Downtime The impact of inconsistent or dispersed data affects plant operations’ bottom line.
