GE’s Intelligent Platforms business (NYSE: GE) announced that it is partnering with Webalo to mobilize business intelligence combined with operational awareness, enabled by the Industrial Internet. Proficy Scorecard, built on Webalo’s secure, scalable, high-productivity mobile app development platform, Webalo Pro Appliance, and GE’s Proficy Mobile, generates real-time views of information, from multiple data sources within the company, to provide actionable “Scorecards” for all departments in an organization.
Proficy Scorecard is enabled by GE’s industry-leading Proficy Mobile solution, which allows industrial environments of all kinds to provide engineers, on their desktop or on a mobile tablet computer or smart phone, with real-time information about the state of operations. With Proficy Scorecard views in hand, engineers can then make the connection between business intelligence and operations making them more productive and efficient. And, because it is mobile, critical data helps users easily, and quickly, monitor the KPIs the business cares most about while drilling down to the operational details and making the Industrial Internet real in their company.
“Proficy Scorecard is a very productive, high value, use of Webalo,” said Peter Price, CEO of Webalo. “It delivers a panoramic view of the enterprise that is tied to real-time data and provides employees with the exact information they need to maintain the highest levels of productivity.”
Using Proficy Scorecard companies can combine data from Proficy with other enterprise applications that the business relies on, including ERP systems, or in-house custom-built applications. Employees can then use that real-time data, on any smartphone or tablet, to operate more productively in ways that have a direct and immediate effect on business efficiency.
“When companies have immediate mobile access to everything affecting their business, decisions will be far more impactful,” said Matthew Wells, General Manager for Automation Software for GE. “Because it is mobile, it relies on the flexibility and facility of the Industrial Internet to empower workers with speed, ultimately impacting ROI.”
