"We are particularly proud to receive these three awards. Coswin, Siveco's historical solution for plant maintenance management, has been known for its user-friendliness and flexibility for nearly 30 years. We are very glad to see Coswin 8i, the latest version of Coswin, receives its first awards in the Chinese market, based on a public vote by industry engineers. Thanks to the latest web technologies, Coswin 8i is specifically designed to make the end-users' experience more pleasant, efficient and rewarding."


He added:


"We are also very happy to see that bluebee® won another award. Our mobile solution has already received many awards over the years by different organizations. We can see the investment we made in R&D is really paying off. While everyone is talking about "Industry 4.0", focusing on automation and machine, we believe that maintenance and people lie at the core of this fourth industrial revolution, which is why we started developing mobile solutions "for the worker of tomorrow" in 2008. I am glad the market is now recognizing this, in the form of this award. A big thank to Plant360 and to everyone who voted for us!"
