Case Study – OMV

Schedule Management Implementation

VisoTech was the only provider that could inherently cover the complex requirements of the market with its schedule management solution, as well as flexibly cater to our own requests. The excellent climate of trust and cooperation must in particular be emphasised.

Franca Heinrici
Head of Logistics, OMV Trading GmbH

The Challenge

In 2009 the OMV made the decision to restructure their energy trade in order to orient the department more towards integrated gas and power trading. A fundamental requirement of this was a software solution which could cover schedule management against the background of the new central business model of “asset backed trading“.

VisoTech‘s Solution

As the Austrian market leader in scheduling systems, and having completed reference projects of a comparable scale and similar complexity, VisoTech emerged as a promising partner for the project implementation from the beginning. Periotheus is distinguished in particular by the countless markets and formats which are inherently supported. The ability to easily expand the system to include additional markets and a modular construction were significant for the subsequent decision.

The Result

By using the Periotheus Schedule Management it was possible to clearly present the structure of the cross-market and transnational commodity trade within the system, despite its complexity and the multitude of parameters. The implementation of the schedule management, as well as the gradual expansion to include further markets, was successfully executed in the planned time frame and in compliance with the planned costs.

Particular attention should be brought to the flexibility of Periotheus, which allowed the successful deployment of changes and updates inevitable for a project of this magnitude and complexity. Since its implementation in 2009, VisoTech‘s schedule management system has constantly expanded together with the increasing trading volume and the increased demands from the OMV. This not only covers the number of transactions processed in the system, but also additional functions and performance features which have ensured that, since the system‘s launch, it can keep pace with the business‘ development and expansion and still constitutes an up-to-date and reliable tool.

Schedule Management Implementation

We are pleased that we can bring our expert knowledge of the energy sector to this joint project and as such could make use of Periotheus‘ flexibility at the OMV.

Case Study – VERBUND

Production Data Management System


In 2014 VERBUND made the decision to replace the existing main dispatcher information system. The requirements for this new software solution were extremely complex. A series of existing systems had to be replaced and several existing external systems had to be integrated.

VisoTech‘s Solution

On account of the longstanding good cooperation with VERBUND AG, VisoTech was an auspicious partner for the implementation of the project. In order to accommodate the special requirements for a production data management system, an expansion of the Periotheus Suite was both specified and subsequently implemented within the framework of a developement cooperation.


As a result of the development cooperation between VERBUND and VisoTech, a new function was added to the Periotheus Suite – power station management. Based on this standardised solution VERBUND could cover all of the extensive requirements of the production data management system, which succeeded in replacing several existing systems and applications and integrating Periotheus into the existing system environment.

Using the Periotheus power station management, the system displayed the management of production data from the power stations in a clear structure and in all their complexity with their wide range of influencing factors. The joint specification of the power station management, as well as the subsequent gradual implementation and integration, was successfully carried out within the planned time frame and in compliance with the planned costs.

Taking into account the requirements and using our experience, VisoTech has managed to expand the software solution to include power station management, which has actually exceeded our expectations. In particular the good usability and flexible connectivity with other systems should be emphasized.
