Germany's Keidel Software Establishes Philippine Base for Its DrainStar Siphonic Calculating Software Solution
MANILA, April 24, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Keidel Software, successful developers and distributors of individual software solutions to plumbing manufacturers around the world, announces its first Asian agent, Ms. Maria Fatima Viray Usi, of Manila, Philippines.
As the local representative of the German Southeast Asia business development company Dr. Klippe Consult, Ms. Usi brings a wide network of contacts and years of experience in Southeast Asia to Keidel Software, as well as proficiency in English, Tagalog, Capampangan and some German.
"The Philippines represent an important hub in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region," explains Rolf H. Keidel, founder of Keidel Software. "The Philippines role in Southeast Asia is unique: among other things, more than 86% of their 86 million inhabitants are Catholic, English is the official language and their government is democratically elected. The Philippines are also home to a rich pool of qualified workers and the sunrise industries, while its strategic location offers investors a gateway for trading with the 560 million-strong ASEAN market, as well as with dynamic China.
"Our DrainStar Siphonic Calculator will provide Philippine roof drain and pipe manufacturers with precise calculations for planning drainage networks. The exact drainage performance of the roof runoffs is calculated, resulting in an average cost savings of about 30%. Manufacturers add value to their product catalogs by using their own product information and relevant data to provide their customers with detailed data and drawings for the planned drainage network, along with all the needed components. Bills of material with or without prices can be created, while the data can be converted instantly into estimates or tender offers. The network drawing is easily transferred to CAD. All country-specific variables can also be used.
"In these challenging times, the manufacturer becomes a system provider that offers complete solutions - not just a seller of drains and pipes, where the pressure to compete only on price would be greater. The DrainStar Siphonic Calculator brings another potential for growth to the manufacturer's catalog and brand."
Ms. Usi adds, "Philippine companies who want to take advantage of government and other incentives for 'green' building projects will recognize the opportunities presented by calculating siphonic drainage networks. LEED points may be awarded for the use of a siphonic design, signifying energy efficient and environmentally-friendly construction practices. If received, these points can translate into increased profitability and significant cost-cutting for builders."
The LEED green building rating system encourages design and construction practices that increase profitability while reducing negative environmental impact on buildings. Properly calculated siphonic drainage networks can result in reduced site disturbance and preparation, as well as a reduction in the use of construction materials. Pipe diameters are much smaller, the number of roof runoffs and downpipes is greatly reduced, and fewer ground lines need to be laid.
