February 10, 2011 – Meridium announced that  Emerson Process Management, SGS Malaysia, and Bureau Veritas (Malaysia) have joined  existing providers Chiyoda Advanced Solutions, Fujitsu (Japan), and Silcar in the Meridium  Certified Services Provider program.   The Meridium Certified Services Provider (MCSP) program is a collaborative partnership  established to allow industry providers to leverage Meridium’s APM software in conjunction  with the services they deliver to the marketplace. The program also provides a global network  of partners which can ensure the success of client projects by providing the highest-quality  implementation services as a complement to services provided directly by Meridium. The  MCSP designation provides the APM community with a higher degree of confidence about  which providers have established relationships with Meridium and who can deliver high-value  services to improve APM initiatives, thus helping companies achieve their goals.   MCSP program members are evaluated and trained on Meridium best practices, methodologies  and software. Among other criteria, MCSP participants have demonstrated their skills and  experience with various APM work processes, are utilizing Meridium APM technology for  delivery of their services, and have completed MCSP training program requirements.   “Meridium has selected these companies to continue this initiative because all are thoughtleaders  and innovators in their industries and have adopted Meridium technology as the basis  for their APM service delivery,” according to Joe Nichols, Meridium VP Product Strategy. “Each  of these companies are also well established in their respective fields and geographic regions,  allowing Meridium to provide the highest level of service and expertise available to customers  that strive to lower operational risks, maximize asset availability and minimize costs.”   Following certification, Meridium Certified Service Providers offer a variety of services to the  marketplace including asset identification and criticality analysis, as well as maintenance  strategy-development and -optimization programs using industry-leading techniques such as  reliability centered maintenance.
