With this acquisition, Wonderware will further expand on SAT’s position as a global supplier of mobile workforce management and decision support solutions that are used to enhance manufacturing visibility and task execution within industrial and manufacturing markets.
The acquired IntelaTrac Enterprise Suite product includes configurable software and mobile hardware solutions that enable workflow, procedural and general task management capabilities, focused around plant operations, maintenance management, production tracking and compliance applications.
