The French national agency for the research valorisation (ANVAR) has granted 400.00 euros to the start-up from Sophia Antipolis specialised in the creation of production chain management software.
The ASophia Software start-up, set up in the Trois Moulins zone in Sophia Antipolis has been helped by the ANVAR (the French national agency for the research valorisation) with a 400.000 euro aid. ASophia Software, founded in May 2000, creates a software that optimises the production in real time. The company headed by Dominique Lamballais, the former person in charge of Siemens Automatique in the Var plain in Nice, has already launched XS Suite.This is a new software concept. XS Suite, the first of the range, could be represented as an integrated software type SAP uniquely attached to the production chain management. Thanks to this tool, the MES (Manufacturing Execution System) can be used by any production factory with no regards to the size, the niche or the product.The aid granted by the ANVAR will be used for the development of new products. This new generation of tools which focuses on a Web architecture and the XML technology will allow users to implement real collaborative work guidelines. It will be offered as a Intranet software package or rented in an ASP mode.According to managers, the ASophia strategy in software publishing for industry opens prospects of quick growth. And this growth will be achieved thanks to the setting up of Excellence Centers in Asia and in the United-States followed by the development in different countries of the involved areas.
