Visual KPI provides immediate, consistent access to critical data, which supports a collaborative relationship between Flowserve and its customers. In addition, Flowserve asset experts have immediate access to detailed, streaming data, which enables them to provide insight and corrective action regardless of their location or device.

Visual KPI aggregates operations, financial and infrastructure information through integration with multiple data sources, making it an ideal mobile companion to any environment.
“Visual KPI enables mobile access to our asset management platform, Technology Advantage, putting key data in the hands of our asset experts and customers,” said Kirk Wilson, Vice President and General Manager of the Integrated Solutions Group at Flowserve.
“By leveraging Visual KPI as a daily component of their asset management offering, Flowserve customers can see what is happening as it happens and be in constant sync with their Flowserve asset experts. Whether it’s solving a vibration issue or monitoring equipment uptime, customers will now have extended access to data to help them monitor equipment health,” said Michael Saucier, CEO of Transpara.
