As part of the Schneider Electric organisation, Spiral has a strong development focus with over two thirds of our staff in software development roles. We provide industry-leading technology for the process industries, focusing in particular on the oil and petrochemicals sector. We are committed to maintaining and building our technology lead making significant investments into research and development each year.
Our tools are the established industry leader in crude oil selection and refinery modelling, allowing our clients to make optimal use of available feedstocks while maximising safety and minimising environmental impact. They play a business critical role for over 70 companies, including all the oil majors.
Our supply chain toolset, launched in 2010, expands the scope of our tools into a much broader market encompassing planning, scheduling and logistics optimization. A strong development roadmap will continue to extend the end-to-end toolset capabilities as well as addressing other process industries, such as food & beverage, chemicals, mining and pharmaceuticals.
Typically, global implementations of our tools span hundreds of users across an organisation. Full support for thin client and cloud-based implementations allows client companies to minimise implementation costs while maintaining high performance with granular control over access to data and services.
Spiral’s tools run complex and computationally-demanding mathematical models to predict the behaviour of industry processes. The emphasis is on developing robust, highly optimised and scalable solutions. The Spiral toolset offers complete flexibility across desktop, web, mobile and programmatic interfaces, each of which interacts with a common business logic layer.
