McRoberts to oversee ASSET360® platform to empower businesses to manage, act on data

Leading data analytics provider Atonix Digital announced today that Paul McRoberts, a proven innovator with deep experience in leading software solutions for the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) market, has been named the company’s new president.

At Atonix Digital, a wholly owned subsidiary of Black & Veatch, McRoberts will oversee development and deployment of the company’s suite of software solutions powered by ASSET360, the cloud-based data analytics platform that drives operational and planning solutions for complex and distributed assets. 

ASSET360 integrates and interprets data from disparate sources to better understand the connections within systems, projects, asset management and planning horizons. User-friendly dashboards visually display numerous customized outputs to provide a big-picture understanding with just a few clicks.

“Paul brings to Atonix Digital both rich software development experience and an in-depth understanding of how deep data exploration is helping transform businesses through greater insight and intelligence,” said Marty Travers, Group President at Black & Veatch whose responsibilities include executive sponsorship of Atonix Digital. “By leveraging predictive analytics, operational intelligence and artificial intelligence, our clients have the ability to significantly optimize performance of their assets.”

McRoberts started his technology career in 1999 with a software-as-a-service (SaaS) based construction management solution, and later spent four years delivering enterprise asset management software. He eventually joined computer-aided design software provider Autodesk, where he served as business line manager for the mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) product line. 

During his tenure at Autodesk, McRoberts launched several new desktop and cloud products, including Autodesk’s first engineering analysis applications, and cloud-based optimization products for building and infrastructure engineering. After leaving Autodesk, he joined CHA Consulting, Inc. where he served as Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, responsible for the company’s technology initiatives and future growth associated with IT, design technology, commercial software development, and technology services.
