Freeport McMoRan FMI

"Visual KPI is an amazingly capable data visualization solution. I use it to display data from PI System, SQL Server, and other database engines to display data from multiple applications, from multiple sites, in one place. Users enjoy the convenience and the functionality, and I enjoy the simplicity of maintenance and the capability of the query interfaces. It is the perfect complement to "printout" reporting systems (SSRS, Crystal, etc)."

We have implemented the Transpara solution for one of our most recent Client projects and have been able to meet and exceed their expectations using Visual KPI. As both a mobile and desktop solution, we can provide the information required to either platform with ease. The Designer Configuration Tool utilizing MS Excel has made administration of developed sites a snap, with control of nearly every imaginable configuration. As a solution developer for my Company, Visual KPI has enabled me to provide very manageable solutions that save us startup and implementation time."

Rio Tinto Mining

"The addition of Visual KPI to our facility has improved the awareness of the operational status of critical equipment. On multiple occasions it has provided our facility with immediate feedback on operational issues. This immediate feedback further expedites our response to the problems and hopefully reduces unplanned downtime. The simple, lightweight nature of the Visual KPI package has also made the implementation of the software seamless. Being familiar with PI Datalink, I found the Visual KPI user interface simple and intuitive. The support has been superior. Emails and phone calls are responded to immediately. I would recommend this to any facility looking to improve the awareness of equipment status or any facility needing to closely monitor equipment run time conditions."

"Visual KPI's strengths lie in its user-friendly solutions to mobile computing, ease of use & intuitive interface. Accessing data on vendor-independent mobile phone & web browsers, make this tool open to all kind of mobile users. It is quick to deploy wit minimum investment and supports multiple data sources. Visual KPI allows any time/real-time access to key operational data in form of dashboards, ad hoc reports, and scorecards & same time drill down to the most detail level of information. The Transpara team has taken out of the box approach to access location wise KPIs by integrating Google maps. This is really cool & gives an overview of plant's assets across the country/state or city. Finally, the Transpara team is very responsive, cooperative and easy to work with."
