Combining Cloud and On Premise offerings for managing and controlling capital project and operations & maintenance documentation

Houston TX USA 30th November 2011 – CTSpace and McLaren Software will be jointly exhibiting at the Digital Plant Expo in Houston from 5th – 7th December 2011 for the first time since the acquisition by Idox plc.

The merger of McLaren Software and CTSpace creates the largest enterprise class On Premise and Cloud based engineering document management and control solutions company.

At the Digital Plant Expo, McLaren and CTSpace will be illustrating how Cloud and On Premise engineering document control solutions can be combined to meet the precise requirements of owner operators in asset intensive industries.

This new, innovative hybrid approach provides a solution that works right across the entire lifecycle of the capital project.
