What the market needs

With increased regulatory scrutiny in the process industry, most organisations heavily rely on their maintenance personnel to discover and map process deficiencies and inconsistencies. However, working with multiple asset documentation systems often hinders the speed, accuracy and efficiency of this process, leading to a delay in the goal to be compliant. For the past decade, Viewport has been helping organisations facing such challenges, achieve operational excellence and regain control over their critical asset information and, as a result, become compliant with the strict industry standards.

On top of the risk reduction and operational excellence benefits, Viewport can help companies in their transition to the digital era by establishing links between the existing documentation and pinpointing inconsistencies and flaws in the digital data, be it drawing, documents or schemes. This is also where the strength of the collaboration between Yokogawa Europe and Viewport comes to flourish to the benefit of its customers. Oscar Custers, Channel & Service Manager Europe at Yokogawa Europe, noted that “Viewport is a cornerstone for us [Yokogawa Europe] in helping our customers with the digital transformation”.
