SmartSignal EPI Center 3.0 is an Industry Game Changer in Predictive Diagnostics

Lisle, IL – SmartSignal Corporation, the leader in predictive diagnostics in the power and oil & gas industries, today announced the availability of SmartSignal EPI Center 3.0. With 3.0, SmartSignal extends itself well beyond its platform of best-in-class analytics — with the addition of best-in-class technology to manage, control, and optimize industry maintenance and operations.

SmartSignal EPI Center provides predictions of impending equipment and process failures — more precisely than and earlier than current condition-monitoring tools. Developed with customer input, EPI Center 3.0 adds three breakthrough applications with end-to-end functionalities — including advanced analysis, easy reporting, incident management and workflow support, and powerful knowledge capture and recall. With EPI Center 3.0, SmartSignal customers not only predict, diagnose, and prioritize like no other — they now capture SmartSignal’s intelligence to dramatically impact the way they do business.

Jim Gagnard, SmartSignal CEO, said: “SmartSignal’s vision is to use its patent-protected technology to deliver best-in-class analytics, diagnostics, and prognostics to industry. EPI Center 3.0 is the foundation of our vision. We have built EPI Center 3.0 with input from, and verification by, our valued customers. With this release, our customers will be able to easily organize, analyze, and manage critical information about the health of their assets.”

EPI Center 3.0 includes:

1.A monitoring application with powerful incident-management support and knowledge capture. This incorporates advanced capabilities for analyzing, managing, communicating, capturing, and learning from EPI Center’s predictive intelligence.

2.An administrative application that assures security through reports on user activity and connection histories.

3. Fully internationalized applications that broadly expand ease-of-use. EPI Center applications and data can be viewed in customers’ native languages, and multi-nationals even can access the solution in multiple languages.

4. Application Programming Interface web services, which provide an open, flexible interface that allows integration of SmartSignal into any application in the enterprise.

Unlike other options, EPI Center 3.0 integrates easily and quickly with customers’ historians and other tools, allowing for quick value and payback. And, uniquely, customers can host the software or use the services of SmartSignal’s Availability and Performance Center, a full-service center that can flexibly deploy, maintain, and/or monitor the solution.
