AVEVA acquires 8over8 Limited – an investment to reduce the risk of project cost and schedule overruns

AVEVA today announced that it has acquired 8over8 Limited (8over8). This acquisition provides the software platform for AVEVA to address the current global need for increased project control, capital discipline, minimising project overruns, and delivering improved efficiency in operations.

8over8’s flagship product is ProCon, a risk management software platform that connects Owner Operators (OOs) and Engineering Procurement Construction companies (EPCs) throughout the project life cycle. ProCon can be deployed on site, or through a privately managed cloud, providing real-time risk management for major capital projects. Trusted to manage contract execution in multi-billion dollar capital projects globally, ProCon is firmly established in the largest capital-intensive energy projects in the world.

Richard Longdon, CEO, AVEVA commenting on the acquisition, said:

‘Now more than ever before, our customers are seeking improved project control and reduced risk to their capital investment programmes. We are responding to the needs of all the industries we serve to help our OO customers maximise their return on capital investment, and our EPC customers to drive greater efficiency, enhancing their profitability and competitive differentiation while providing a well-established global platform to accelerate the rollout of ProCon.’

‘By acquiring 8over8, AVEVA is uniquely placed to ensure both technical and contractual integrity changes are captured during the project life cycle and provides further proof of AVEVA’s ongoing strategy to grow its business both organically and through acquisition

‘Delays and cost overruns are costing billions of dollars when the need for capital discipline has never been greater’ says Clare Colhoun, CEO, 8over8. ‘We have enjoyed rapid expansion in the adoption of the ProCon platform and emerged as the leader in contractual risk management software. Joining AVEVA gives us the chance to take ProCon to an even wider global market and I’m excited by the opportunities this acquisition brings for our customers, solutions and employees. We will certainly benefit from AVEVA’s global network of professionals, industry expertise and commitment to technology innovation.’
