To meet growing opportunities, the shipbuilding and offshore software developer of ShipConstructor and EnterprisePlatform, SSI, has launched a subsidiary in Mumbai, India. The new company’s name is SSI India Solutions Pvt. Umesh Angadi is the Director of Sales and Operations for this new SSI office which will provide technical sales, technical support and administrative staff.
Harsha Marine Designers (HMD) remain a critical component of SSI’s presence in India. Director of Sales & Marketing Michael Viala comments, “As one of our longest standing SSI representatives, Harsha Marine Designers is credited for creating the demand for SSI software in India. This new office is necessary to help them meet that demand.”
“We are excited about the Indian Government’s upcoming shipbuilding policy and see great potential in the Indian market,” says SSI CEO Darren Larkins. “SSI’s Autodesk based ShipConstructor software along with our EnterprisePlatform program for leveraging engineering data are ideal for the Indian market.”
Because SSI’s ShipConstructor program for detail design and production engineering is based on Autodesk’s AutoCAD, it is proven to be a perfect fit for India’s shipbuilders and marine engineering offices. Adopting the shipbuilding specific capabilities of ShipConstructor is a small step for a market well versed in Autodesk CAD/CAM tools. With the addition of EnterprisePlatform, shipbuilders can also cost-effectively implement sophisticated production planning and management practices.
