Reading, UK – May 14, 2013 – Aspen Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: AZPN), a leading provider of software and services to the process industries, announced the industry’s first web-based software for process modeling and manufacturing. The new aspenONE features a web and mobile interface that allows process industry professionals to work with aspenONE software through web-enabled devices. Users can now harness the industry’s most powerful optimisation software through corporate network connections via tablets, laptops, or desktop computers and the simplicity of multi-touch gestures.
The new aspenONE features:
One user interface. The new aspenONE web interface provides a single user interface that is common across multiple AspenTech products such as Aspen Plus®, Aspen HYSYS®, and InfoPlus.21®. Now plant engineers and operators have a common reference point for easier exchange of information and data.
Access to critical information anytime from anywhere. The web-based user interface makes working with plant models and data in Aspen Plus, Aspen HYSYS, and Aspen InfoPlus.21 as easy as accessing a web page. Built on HTML5, the aspenONE web and mobile interface allows process engineers to interact with models and real-time plant information using touch-enabled devices.
No specialised application training. With a simple user experience and easy access to information, enterprises can now empower the broadest range of users to tap the power of AspenTech software – all without specialised product training or desktop software installation.
Flexible workflow. The seamless user experience allows engineers and plant operators to change work locations without losing project work. This flexibility allows users to start a project in one location and continue it in a different location – via mobile device or desktop – without any loss of work.
Intelligent Search. Powered by Aspen Search, AspenTech’s search engine designed for the process industries, the new aspenONE enables users to find specific process information from across their enterprise in seconds.
The new release is available immediately. For more information, visit www.aspentech.com. The latest version of aspenONE software is available for download at AspenTech Support.
Phil Edwards, Staff Scientist, SABIC : “The new aspenONE web interface is a big step towards ensuring that the right person can always access, select, and use the right model right when it is needed. This access can result in better operational decisions.”
Charles Staton, Process Engineer, Melamine, Cornerstone Chemical Company : “The new aspenONE is an exciting innovation. It was easy to install, and now, everyone can find and run our Aspen Plus and Aspen HYSYS models from a web browser without training.”
Eric M. Cordi, Associate Research Fellow, Pfizer : “The flexible search capabilities and easy model use in a web browser or mobile device will greatly increase access to simulation by all members, both experts and non-experts, of our process design teams.”
James Holoboff, Process Engineer, Process Ecology : “aspenONE increases the ability to better retain, search and build on process simulation knowledge within our company, increasing the value we can provide to our clients.”
Manolis Kotzabasakis, Executive Vice President, Products, AspenTech : “The new aspenONE is a leap forward for process optimisation software. Many of the world’s process plants rely on models and data generated by AspenTech products. As global markets evolve and new users enter the workforce every day, it is critical that real-time plant information is easily available to all users who need it, not just those who are Aspen IP.21, Aspen Plus, or Aspen HYSYS power users. Our new aspenONE software addresses that need.”
