Fincantieri operates in the design and construction of complex ships with high technological content, such as cruise ships, merchant and naval vessels, offshore and mega yachts. Following a detailed competitive benchmark and proof of concept project, the company chose Smart Yard – Intergraph's flagship solution for a single, integrated, collaborative design and fabrication knowledge management environment specializing in fabrication yards. Fincantieri will use Smart Yard in its upcoming shipbuilding projects for cruise, merchant and naval vessels.

Federico Gentili, CIO of Fincantieri, said, "We aim to optimize design efficiency and ensure Fincantieri a competitive advantage in the global shipbuilding market. This is the reason why we opted for a new software suite covering the full project life cycle from engineering, procurement and project planning to fabrication, construction and project completion. We are confident that Intergraph will strongly help us in this process of improvement."

Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine president, said, "Fincantieri is an esteemed global leader in the shipbuilding industry, and we are proud to support their success. It is a priority for Intergraph PP&M to provide our clients with technology that enables them to optimize performance."
