“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.
