Enterprise software specialist CentricMinds has recruited an experienced technology executive to launch a multi-pronged sales campaign in the US that is intended to treble product sales in two years.
This week, the company revealed its CentricMinds content management system (CMS) is now used by more than 50,000 active users at nearly 300 sites worldwide. CentricMinds believes its successful software, which is used by customers ranging from BHP Billiton to the 40,000-student university, Unitec, in Mexico City, can undermine existing products by delivering better value for money.
The California office will be headed by Jim Prevatte, a technology veteran who was attracted by the market potential of CentricMinds. The Australian company also has a sales office in Sydney, a sales executive in Brisbane and its product development group based in Adelaide.
CentricMinds, which sells its software through a national and international reseller network, has customers in Australia, Hong Kong, the UK, Canada, Mexico and Venezuela.
Two upstream Petroleum software specialists – Petrosys 'the mapping guru' and risked resource & value ‘assessment wizard’ GeoKnowledge – are teaming up.
These industry leaders share a common vision. Both understand that continuous investment in new product development and strategic partnerships are vital to leverage specialist expertise that delivers more effective and efficient exploration decision-making. Under the teaming agreement, the partners expect to promote better integrated access to a growing range of analytic and mapping tools that are already a core part of the EP toolbox for over 3000 users at some 300 sites globally.
Petrosys CEO Volker Hirsinger is enthusiastic about the synergy between the two vendors, saying 'Access to GeoKnowledge's exemplary play and prospect evaluation tools will allow Petrosys users to better quantify their geotechnical assessments by effectively incorporating their understanding of risks and uncertainties. Existing corporate data sources accessed through Petrosys maps will provide a new level of support to exploration decision making when linked to GeoX's stochastic asset information.'
GeoKnowledge CEO Charles Stabell sees visualization providing complementary decision support, saying 'Petrosys established mapping and 3D visualisation tools, and their practical approach to fitting in with diverse GIS and information management strategies, make them a logical choice for extending the spatial functionality of GeoX. Improved visualization will provide greater understanding of risk and uncertainty in exploration and exploitation opportunities.’
