Transpara Visual KPI

by Transpara Corporation

Real-time monitoring and visualization software. It reads from PI System, AF and other sources to deliver KPIs, dashboards, analytics and alerts to any device.

Solution Overview

Visual KPI is loved by hundreds of OSIsoft customers globally and has been in the market since 2006. It has been adopted by users at all levels to eliminate downtime, perform remote troubleshooting, improve safety and compliance, optimize people and equipment, and expand the reach of existing and new data for faster decision-making. It is a personalized real-time view of operations that puts a sexy and obvious front-end user experience in front of your powerful PI System and Asset Framework data. It also lets you mix that data with other sources (ERP, SQL, Web Services, etc.) on the fly. It is equally at home in front of the CEO, management, operations and field staff, and doesn't require end-user training. It also works on any device with a web browser (fully responsive), including your phone, tablet, PC and even that large screen on the wall. Transpara offers a free trial of Visual KPI so you can know if it is a fit within a day or two and without wasting time or money. Visit our web site to learn more.

Our customers use Visual KPI for many reasons, but the primary reason is to get powerful, real-time data in the hands of more users (without the need for training) to improve the speed and quality of their decisions. Most of our customers save millions of dollars by improvements or acceleration in the following areas: Exposing performance ‘between reports’ to management. Catching potential issues before they even make it to the reports. Real-time crisis management / situational awareness. Increased production availability and asset uptime. Reduced waste, downtime. Optimization of equipment, staff and capital assets. Improved safety and compliance. Sustained behavioral changes and staff accountability by putting KPIs in everyone's hands, Better use of subject-matter expertise by giving them access from any device or location

Solution Approach

Visual KPI reads data from up to thousands of sources, but does not move that data or create a new master data source to manage or maintain. Because of this, it is a lightweight, low-impact layer of software that sits in front of your data and puts it to use for everyone. This also means it is a snap to deploy, either on-premise or in the cloud. Our normal on-premise deployments can be completed remotely over a web meeting within a couple of hours and leave our pilot customers with a live working system that is fully integrated with PI System and/or Asset Framework and available on all of their devices.
