To continue its global growth strategy and access a very promising market, Implico Group is eager to work with strong local partners – especially in Latin America, a key area for the oil and gas trade of today and tomorrow. The company is particularly eager to bring its next-gen terminal management system OpenTAS to the region’s huge tank storage sector. For this, Implico Group has found a perfect match with Aquarius Software, headquartered in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Combining their deep know-how and experience, the two partners aspire to introduce their clients to the many benefits of digitalization, such as streamlined processes, increased transparency, better collaboration and more safety along the entire supply chain.
“Aquarius Software has a thorough understanding of the downstream industry plus a wide-spread network, a spotless reputation and a forward-looking mindset,” lauds Thomas Roller, Head of Sales & Marketing at Implico Group. “Sharing similar aims and values, we look forward to drive digital transformation for oil and gas enterprises in Latin America together. In fact, we are already at it. The cooperation agreement has already been signed and the first implementation project is well underway.”
Marcia Campos, Executive Director & Partner at Aquarius Software, is excited about the union as well: “We always look for the best solution for our customers. Implico is recognized in this market with awarded solutions and numerous customers worldwide. There is a natural synergy between the companies, which have a strong focus on digital transformation and clear orientation towards their customers’ businesses. I am sure that this partnership will lead to more project opportunities for both companies as well as strong benefits for our customers.”
Aquarius Software has become a Brazilian reference in technology, products and services for industrial automation and production management. The key to this consolidated position is the company’s capability to understand the local market and seek market-leading solutions and differentiated services from the shop floor to the corporate environment. The company continually searches for the outstanding technologies, mixes software and services with new approaches and creates a range of possibilities and innovations to meet the challenges of each customer.
Aquarius Software team is formed by specialists in Automation and Operation Technology (AT / OT) and Information Technology (IT) ready to accompany the customers in their Digital Transformation journey.
Founded in 1984, Aquarius Software was born when a group of professionals identified a market opportunity and created a new business (today known as “startup”) in software development. Its first products were designated for the services market in the Finance and Advertising segments. From 1996, as a new commercial strategy, the Company started to provide solutions in the Industrial Automation segment, after signing a distribution contract for the process supervision software “FIX”, created by Intellution – a Group Emerson company later acquired by GE.
Aquarius’s leadership and pioneerism are not only present in its products. The Company offers a series of synergistic and complementary services that add value to its customers and differentiate them in the markets in which they operate. Customer satisfaction surveys performed by third parties have shown that Aquarius’s After-Sales Service is considered its main differential by customers and integrating partners.
