FOLSOM, Calif.—October 28, 2009 — Meridian Systems, the Plan-Build-Operate technology solutions leader for project-based organizations, announced today that Intuitive Systems Corporation, an authorized Meridian Systems Global Reseller serving Florida and Latin America, has partnered with Utilicon, a technology and engineering services firm, in Brazil to offer a new Portuguese language pack for Prolog® software.
“With the increasing construction project volume and energy initiatives in Brazil,there is a need to localize Prolog for the Portuguese-speaking market. With Utilicon’s local presence and Government/AEC experience combined with our technical and domain knowledge, this development opportunity was a natural fit for us,” said Alessandro Chiarini, principal, Intuitive Systems Corporation.
Utilicon, located in Sao Paolo, Brazil has more than 30 years experience in the AEC marketplace and more than 10 years of experience focusing on the government sector. With the Prolog Portuguese Language Pack, Intuitive Systems and Utilicon can provide Portuguese-speaking customers with comprehensive project management and collaboration software.
“With Intuitive Systems and Utilicon working together, we can now offer project-based companies in Brazil access to a localized version of the leading construction project management software from Meridian Systems,” said Elizabeth Dodson, director of business development at Meridian.
“In Brazil, the adoption of project management and collaboration tools has become essential due to the reporting requirements of big infrastructure projects within the government and private sectors,” said Herton Götz, president, Utilicon.“To meet these market needs, Utilicon decided to offer Prolog software, in addition to its AEC consulting services, so that we can provide complete project management solutions to our clients.Looking ahead, our goal is to establish Meridian as the plan-build-operation technology leader in Brazil.”
Prolog provides project management control for construction projects by automating day-to-day tasks and processes, from project design to close-out.
The Portuguese language pack will also support Multi-Currency, Cash Flow, Value Added Tax and other local processes. Customers will need to purchase Prolog Manager separately from the add-on language pack.
