Featured by the ISPE, PlantQuest Director outlines how digital initiatives are becoming increasingly abundant and important, but many large organizations, particularly in the life science sector, struggle to implement and roll out these initiatives successfully. A common reason for this is that digital transformation efforts often fail to successfully move from the boardroom to the plant room, resulting in a disjointed user experience with limited success. To address this issue and ensure the success of digital transformation, it is crucial to focus on building a solid foundation before introducing advanced features.
When an emergency occurs in an industrial setting, every second counts. Whether it's a fire alarm, a spill, or an accident involving personnel or equipment, a prompt response can mean the difference between containing the situation and watching it spiral out of control. In environments where safety is paramount, response time can be a critical factor in preventing injuries, protecting assets and products, and minimizing downtime and financial losses.
Mapping solutions provide a comprehensive way to visualize and manage these assets, streamlining operations and improving communication. This article discusses the benefits of mapping solutions in large facilities, key considerations for adoption, how PlantQuest is revolutionizing digitization for green and brownfield facilities, and potential ROI from implementing such solutions.
PlantQuest solutions are optimized for both green and brownfield environments due to its modular design, and multitude of deployment methods. With a typical deployment lasting 10 weeks, with little to no boots on the ground required.
PlantQuest are delighted to welcome a new pharma client from North Carolina, USA.

A commitment to helping global Life Science facilities run safer, more productive facilities underpins every PlantQuest deployment. Be it saving workers 1,000s of hours per year locating assets & navigating their site, reducing alarm response times, or ensuring workers have the all the information they need to make smart efficient decisions.

With operational efficiency being the measurement of resource allocation, large process facilities are looking at ways of increasing the efficiency of their resources. More often than not facilities are looking to do so through the use of asset mapping. Asset mapping is the process of mapping the assets within a facility and exposing them to teams, contractors, and emergency responders alike. Trends are starting to show that facilities are looking to map a range of assets. These include EHS, calibration, production, and facility among others. In this information guide, we outline 5 Ways Asset Mapping Can Help Operational Efficiency and how you can begin your own asset mapping journey with PlantQuest.
