CSIA introduces Industrial Automation Exchange

May 16, 2014 – A new online service from the Control System Integrators Association will help industrial plant owners and operators connect with control system integrators and suppliers who can meet their industrial automation needs.

The Industrial Automation Exchange, replaces the association’s previous online directory with a feature-rich digital community where visitors can search for system integrators, suppliers, products and information.

“Our members are looking for ways to educate prospective clients about system integration and to help industrial clients connect with the right people and products to implement automation solutions,” said Bob Lowe, CSIA executive director.

One of the features that distinguishes the Industrial Automation Exchange from a traditional buyers guide is the ability to create personal profiles and communicate with other visitors to the site.

“The social component of the Exchange allows our members to demonstrate that system integration is not a commodity product. As with other professional services, it’s the people behind the company name and logo who make the difference,” said Lowe.

Companies that are not members may be listed in the community, however, they will be able to choose more features and qualify for discounts by becoming CSIA members.

CSIA will promote the Exchange to end user clients and customers through publicity, advertising and social media.
