The business case

Equipping your business to manage the changing information landscape, driven by the industrial internet of things (IIoT), is a modern imperative. Yet having the people, time or CAPEX to leverage these advances is out of reach of many companies. Insight addresses these concerns by providing a cost-effective software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution that is simple to set-up, manage, and use.

Insight allows you to quickly turn the data residing in existing industrial assets into a live information feed for decision support. Take advantage of IIoT to deliver powerful performance intelligence to the people who need it, when they need it, where they need it. You determine who has access, they determine how to action it. And, we reduce your IT burden by maintaining the software securely in the cloud, so you can be certain that your team has access to powerful analytics anywhere.
