      Example of Product Implementation

Business Challenge

Many users across an organization needed access to real-time production information. Different users required different levels of visualization and analysis capabilities.


For those users who need read-only access to ProcessBook displays, but who do not need to build their own displays, PI ActiveView was a sound option.

Customer Result/Benefit

The customer now has a secure way to leverage their ProcessBook display content for those who need it, no matter where they are, over the web. This allows off-site managers and workers the ability to stay on-top of all areas of their production, even though they have to be away.
