Zenith’s managed services provide 24/7 front line support and operation of clients’ automation and MES systems. The next generation of managed services will have an increased focus on multi-platform support and cost reduction. Zenith Technologies now offers managed services that support eight major platforms developed by Emerson, Siemens, Rockwell, Sneider, OSiSoft, Werum and Aspentech. This provides clients with a clear picture of their entire automation and MES landscape in order to reduce costs and increase reliability.
Having worked for several Tier 1 pharma companies, delivering large-scale automation and process control projects, Mr. Staunton will use his experience to continue to develop Zenith Technologies as a provider of managed services to the life science industry.
“David will be focused on achieving the main goal of our managed service offering, which is to ensure that manufacturers in the life science sector get the most from their automation and IT systems, reducing their total cost of ownership and improving business operations,” said Jim Lehane, director, Zenith Technologies. “By managing automation and MES systems on behalf of our customers, we help to overcome challenges around skilled resource availability in the life science sector by providing the right people with the right skill-set, when and where they are needed.”
Zenith Technologies first introduced the managed services model to the market in 2006.
Based in Dublin, Mr. Staunton will lead the Zenith Technologies’ managed service teams delivered out of 16 offices globally.
