Virtual Intelligence Platform (VIP)

Every purpose needs a platform.

About VIP

Manufacturing process industries are continuously seeking ways to improve performance of their operating assets, and find ways to increase productivity and profits. InnoVent’s APM Solutions are geared towards operational excellence and driving that profitability by leveraging digital and emerging technologies via its Virtual Intelligence Platform (VIP).

VIP is proprietary and cloud-based software platform to convert “hard copy” based Standard Operating Procedures (SOP’s), manuals, and training content to interactive and digital versions, with embedded photos, videos, datasheets, CAD drawings, and eLearning tutorials.

VIP also takes real-time asset information (Control systems, ERP, historians) and provides KPI monitoring dashboards deploying AI/Analytics/simulation to predict equipment and asset performance. Operators can then determine their actions using VIP’s Smart Decision trees for cause and effect analytics, all in a seamless and interactive platform.
