Change is a constant in technology; it is also a constant for technology companies. George Bernard Shaw once said, “Progress is impossible without change.” Today, Intergraph Security, Government & Infrastructure (SG&I) embraces change as a catalyst for progress, growth, and innovation.
After five years as a Hexagon brand, I am pleased to announce that Intergraph SG&I is undergoing an exciting change. We are changing our name. From this day forward, we will be known as Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure.
For nearly 50 years, we have had the privilege of partnering with organizations and government agencies around the world to solve complex challenges and positively impact millions of people. Through our proven innovation and dedication to our customers, we have helped shape smart change in the industries we proudly serve. And as we start a new chapter in our company’s history, we will be building upon this legacy to make an even bigger impact on our customers and the citizens they serve.
By further aligning ourselves with Hexagon, we will be able to give our customers the very best access to the latest and greatest technologies and solutions available to meet their specific needs. As a Hexagon brand, we’ve been able to make many beneficial and strategic acquisitions and partnerships to propel forward the innovations and solutions we offer. And we expect these types of opportunities to continue to grow, enabling us to better anticipate and solve our customers’ global challenges.
As Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure, we will continue to be a trusted partner to our customers, applying expertise and innovation to improve their operations and services. While our name, branding and web presence have changed, our leadership, people, and dedication have not. We are as committed as ever we have been to delivering the best possible service and superior global solutions.
Although we are making some changes, we are still committed to shaping smart change by providing mission-critical and business-critical solutions. And we are still focused on helping our customers build safer communities, better public services, and more reliable infrastructure. We will continue to be a trusted partner and resource our customers can count on.
Thank you for your time. We appreciate your business and look forward to success together – both now and in the future.
