ALPHARETTA, GA, April 12, 2005 (PRNewswire) -- Citect, a global provider of production process improvement solutions, and its Platinum Integration Partner, Edison Automation, have been awarded a contract exceeding $1 million with the Greater Cincinnati Water Works (GCWW) to upgrade its water treatment plants. GCWW is one of numerous water/wastewater treatment facilities North America recently choosing to standardize on CitectSCADA.

The GCWW Selection Committee picked Citect over several competitors citing that its CitectSCADA V6 product offers the most cost-effective solution that best matches the project requirements.

"We believe Citect offers the best approach for GCWW now, and for many years into the future," explained Jay Kramer, I. T. Assistant Manager, GCWW.
