LAKE FOREST, Calif., May 15, 2009 - Wonderware, a business unit of Invensys, has been honored by industry research and consulting firm Frost & Sullivan with the "Excellence in Customer Value of the Year" award for the control software solutions and services category.

Wonderware was recognized for its strategic partnerships with diverse system integrators and its capability to deliver an end-to-end product suite that is designed to enhance the competitive edge for its customers, driving best-in-class processes through the use of the Wonderware System Platform and Invensys ArchestrA technology.

"The fact that over 33 percent of the world's plants continue to rely on the Wonderware integrated platform offering to maximize overall process efficiency and enable enterprise-wide visibility is clear recognition of the organization's determined effort to deliver consistent value-added benefits."
