SmartGlance mobile application from Invensys Operations Management is a reporting solution that delivers plant data and reports directly to mobile devices via the cloud. Leveraging two of today’s most important new technologies-- smart phones and cloud computing-- SmartGlance can keep decision makers and operators fully aware of a plant’s performance. Data from Invensys Operations Management’s systems, as well as from a myriad of other plant data sources, can be sent via the cloud to smart phones subscribed to the SmartGlance mobile reporting service. Plant personnel at every level can see current operating data anywhere and at any time, helping to accelerate decision making and improving collaboration.

The company says its native SmartGlance application completes the information loop by providing easy-to-view and easy-to-analyze data reports, taking advantage of touchscreen-based displays many smart phones now feature. Interactive tabular reports, along with trends, bar charts, and pie charts, can be manipulated easily, allowing extensive drill-down capabilities. Users can issue or share reports with co-workers via e-mail, enhancing real-time collaboration and effectively adding enterprise control capability to a hand-held device. The reports are generated and sent to phones either on demand or automatically, and the application has three layers of security to keep important company data protected at all times.

Key capabilities include:

• View plant data anywhere, anytime
• Powerful, analytical displays
• Easy touch screen navigation
• Share reports via email
• Secure cloud-based report generation and delivery, and
• Supports commonly used smart device platforms like Apple, Blackberry, and soon, Android and Microsoft Phone 7.
