24/7 process support

PlantFloor24, the world’s first full-service, platform-independent, 24/7 hardware, software and process support solution was launched recently by Maverick Technologies. Customers, partners and members of the media toured the new operations center, where they have resources on-call 24/7/365. Among those attending the launch were, ISA Executive Director, Pat Gouhin,  - Maverick Technologies is an ISA Automation Week partner - and the distinguised Automation journalists, Walt Boyes, of Control and Gary Mintchel of Automation World.

Paul Galeski, CEO and Founder said, "You’ll be hearing a lot about PlantFloor24 over the next few weeks — and about operational support and improvement. This concept will change how plants maintain, monitor and optimize their assets."

Senior consultant Peter Esparro added, “This solution really comprises a spectrum of offerings. On one end, you have manufacturers that will outsource a large portion of their automation services, and on the other you have manufacturers that are just looking for resource augmentation.”

“It’s a fully secure operational center with remote monitoring, biometric hand scans, backup generators and war-room style views into operations,” said Kirk Norris, senior vice president, Strategic Manufacturing Solutions.

Not only will this center and the PlantFloor24 solution be a lifeline for manufacturing facilities, it will provide manufacturers across the globe with the ability to:
• Reduce operational costs
• Augment staff with multidisciplinary skills
• Improve asset management

"This launch truly changes the game, finally addressing some of the major gaps that have held manufacturers back in the quest for integrated operational efficiency." concluded Paul Galeski.
