Low Cost & All-in Functionality of Movicon 11 SCADA Proving a Hit with UK Systems Integrators
The people who really know about SCADA systems, the Systems Integrators who develop and install them, are warmly welcoming the launch of Progea Movicon 11 SCADA onto the UK market. “We already have a number of top system integrators using Movicon SCADA, after only a few months of offering the package in the UK,” commented Paul Hurst, MD of P4A, the UK agent for package. “The positive comments that we are receiving centre overwhelming on the comprehensive nature of the package, with all major functionality built in – and no expensive cost add-ons. System Integrators are finding that the Movicon 11 package is costing on average 30% to 50% less than equivalent systems from competitive suppliers, with no sacrifice in functionality. The fact that there are no development fees with Movicon is also winning business for SI in what is a very competitive market.”
