Opto 22’s groov Action Plan is a service that quickly adds mobility to applications in industrial automation, control, and remote monitoring. The groov Action Plan result is a completed groov mobile operator interface-a custom mobile app-that authorizes automation end-users, machine OEMs, and other personnel to monitor and control systems and equipment from smartphones and tablets. The groov Action Plan provides a planned path from concept to completion for creating, deploying, and supporting a groov mobile app. With the groov Action Plan, the engineer can work with a customer to understand project objectives, define requirements, and design the operator interface. With a groov mobile app, a customer can use a smartphone or tablet to monitor or control, for example, an environmental system, with key information from multiple sensors and devices displayed on a single screen.
