A new online search tool established by the Control System Integrators Association (CSIA) will improve the way plant managers, directors of operations and other industry clients find control system integration companies to meet their automation needs.

The Industrial Automation Exchange, or "Exchange," as it is known, is CSIA's comprehensive online directory for locating qualified system integrators and suppliers.

CSIA executive director Bob Lowe said the online search tool will allow project managers, directors of quality assurance and other decision-makers of companies to learn about system integration, as well as be connected with the right people and products.

Lowe notes the Industrial Automation Exchange was created as a convenient way for all system integrators and industry suppliers to be more accessible to industry clients. Membership in CSIA is not required to be listed on the Exchange. The site offers detailed profiles outlining an integrator's expertise, allows for potential clients to compare up to three companies in a particular industry at a time and even ask questions of Exchange members.

"The CSIA Exchange is all about outreach," said Lowe.
