Deal adds new software capabilities to improve plant performance and brings new technologies to Emerson’s Operational Certainty initiative

Emerson (NYSE: EMR) announced on the 17th of January that it has acquired ProSys Inc., a global supplier of software and services that increase production and safety for the chemical, oil and gas, pulp and paper, and refining industries. By building intuitive processes for plant operators, these solutions make everything from everyday operations to responding during abnormal situations easier.

“The staff of ProSys are all friends of long standing and the INSIDER wishes them all well and congratulates them on their success,” said Walt Boyes, editor/publisher of the INSIDER.

“Adding ProSys’ differentiated technologies and expertise allows us to help our customers improve plant performance, safety and profitability by optimizing their human and automation resources,” said Mike Train, executive president, Emerson Automation Solutions. “With ProSys, we can provide innovative control and operator performance capabilities to make control room operators far more effective.”

ProSys’ portfolio includes solutions that help operators manage alarms critical to plant production and safety, and efficiently handle changing plant states. In addition, ProSys provides modern, high performance and intuitive graphics for better operator communications.

ProSys complements Emerson’s May 2017 acquisition of MYNAH Technologies, which provides dynamic simulation and operator training software. Together, these technologies embed expertise to help operators navigate plant systems safely and efficiently, and prepare customers to accommodate the changing state and age of the industrial workforce.

“Our specialization in software and services that increase operator performance builds on Emerson’s market leadership in automation control systems,” said Dustin Beebe, president and CEO at ProSys. “By working together as one, we can provide even more operational and financial value to customers.” Beebe will join Emerson Automation Solutions as vice president, control and operator performance.

    Hello Walt ,
    Here is the link to the article which I wrote and was published the 2017 September issue of The American Oil and Gas Reporter magazine. I presented this at several oil and gas conferences this past year in North Dakota and Saskatchewan. It was also accepted for the 2018 AGA Gas Association Mtg. in Washington, DC.
