GE joins the growing the list of vendors going the extra-mile to support customers on the front lines of the coronavirus (or COVID-19).
GE is is offering free web-based remote monitoring and control licenses to its Industrial HMI/SCADA Software Customers. GE customers are on the front line of solving the world’s toughest industrial challenges – mission-critical industries including water and wastewater production and distribution, food and beverage manufacturing, consumer packaged goods and pharmaceutical companies.
As efforts continue to protect public health and slow the spread of the coronavirus (or COVID-19), workers in all industries are increasingly being asked to work remotely to ensure business continuity.
That’s why GE Digital is offering free Remote Monitoring and Control licenses to its iFIX and CIMPLICITY customers, empowering them to work remotely and continue to keep their plants running during this difficult time.
The web-based solution gives plant operators and management teams real-time monitoring and control access to plant operations and performance over a secure-by-design connection such as VPN. This allows critical infrastructure to operate with a reduced crew on site, while being able to coordinate with their wider teams remotely.
By making this solution available for free to our 20,000 Automation software customers, we hope to make it easier for them to continue to provide vital services to our communities as we work together to slow the spread of the virus.
By enabling mobile workers, industrial companies are better able to ensure the safety of their workers while continuing to serve their customers.
