  • Questions?

“Our organization depends on Plant Watcher to help us manage and protect our business. We thought for sure we knew how our plants were running, but the information provided by Plant Watcher highlighted new opportunities for efficiency and cost savings. The real- time notification by Plant Watcher of an out of specification load for a critical pour alerts our QC department, day or night, to step in and prevent that load from being placed! For companies who wish to be proactive about Quality Control, Plant Watcher is a meaningful and cost effective addition.”Steve WagenerKuhlman Corporation
