The Cohesive Companies, a wholly-owned business unit of infrastructure engineering software company Bentley Systems, has announced the acquisition of maritime software provider SRO Solutions.
Established in 2004, SRO introduced IBM’s Maximo software package to the maritime environment, an application used for enterprise asset management in different industrial sectors.
Headquartered in Manchester, UK, the company’s engineers, consultants, and project managers have delivered systems across a range of different client groups, but primarily operate in maritime and oil and gas.
SRO’s product portfolio includes SDU (SRO Data Utility), which provides upgrade and migration processes to allow businesses to keep running while software packages are being updated, and SDR (SRO Data Replication), which manages data synchronisation across remote locations and intermittent connections.
“We are excited to welcome Tony Lackey (SRO Managing Director) and the SRO team, with their technical expertise and hands-on knowledge of resources industries,” said Noah Eckhouse, CEO, The Cohesive Companies.
“Our goal, as an autonomous digital integrator consultancy, is to support global owner-operators and their assets literally everywhere in going digital. Incorporating SRO’s comprehensive product and service offerings, and their uniquely deep experience in maintaining safety and regulatory compliance in challenging and low/no-bandwidth environments, will help our emerging digital twin offerings to reach the full extent of maritime and industrial assets.”
