Citect has announced that it is integrating its field operations team with its parent company, Schneider Electric, and has also announced plans to further invest in research and development.
According to the company, the merger is designed to improve customer service and strengthen the development of the Citict software, Vijeo Citect.
Vijeo Citect is Schneider Electric’s branded version of the CitectSCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition).
“The combined expertise of the Citect and Schneider Electric automation field operations teams will give customers simpler but greater access to our automation solutions,” Citect CEO Christopher Crowe said.
CitectSCADA software will continue to be available from Citect’s partners located in Asia Pacific, South Africa, Europe and the Americas.
The new organisation will come into effect on January 1, 2009.
