Branding and Product Naming
Bring together two strong companies presented a need to redefine the company to maximize the technical and business value of the two organizations. The new company flag ship brand is VisualMesa™, so this branding is associated with each company product. The classic Visual MESA Energy Management and Optimization has become VisualMesa™ Energy Management - Real-Time Optimization, S-TMS has become VisualMesa™ Production Accounting, and S-SOM has become VisualMesa™ Supply Chain Scheduling. There are a number of new products in the works that will further enhance our ability to deliver greater value to our customers.
In February 2013, Yokogawa Electric Inc. announced the addition of Soteica Visual Mesa's best-in-class energy management and optimization solution services to its portfolio of plantwide energy management solutions (EMS). Yokogawa will provide this new offering to its customers through its strong sales and service channels.
