Get actionable data as fresh as today’s news

I was gathering some recyclables up at home this weekend and I picked up a newspaper from May 14, 2016 – exactly one month old. Something compelled me to open it up and page through it: national election updates, stock market prices, sports updates, international events.

Everything in that paper was now outdated and surpassed by more recent events. It was completely useless for me today.

How many businesses run their operations using month old data? Compile a month’s worth of data (after waiting for two weeks to get it entered), review, reconcile, publish. By then you are looking at data which is up to 6 weeks old! It’s too late to fix any problems. How much money and productivity are lost and resources wasted because we are using outdated information to manage our companies? I call this “Management by Old Newspaper”.

We developed Wave7 to eliminate the old newspaper style of management. Wave7 monitors the health and performance of assets in real-time. You can monitor equipment performance up to the minute, evaluate and assess it, and adjust tomorrow’s plans as needed. And with our predictive analytics engine, you can take preventative action regarding an impending problem, as Wave7 will alert your team immediately so they can respond before the downtime event.

One of our customers has assets all over the world. Once in a while they would have a ‘situation’; a bad situation that would result in lost production. “What happened? Why did it happen? And why am I finding out 3 weeks later?”

Now, with Wave7 installed on each asset, the customer can monitor the assets in real time from his smartphone, wherever he is and wherever the assets are. Now, when a ‘situation’ happens he is notified immediately; Wave7 sends him a text message. Using our event-driven DVR feature, he can replay the event to see exactly what happened in the minutes leading up to, and right after, the event. Working with his team, they can quickly assess the situation and develop a recovery plan.

Wave7 Easy Actionable Data Wave7 makes condition monitoring easy. In a world of complicated historians, transaction managers and enterprise-wide solutions, we are the Easy Button. Start with one asset and grow from there, adding assets as it makes sense. There is zero infrastructure required, so the starting costs are low.

Actionable Information in Every Decision-maker’s Hands

iphone-oee-screen-line-downIf you are in manufacturing operations, you probably have an ever-growing thirst for factory floor data. And while the world around you seems completely connected, your plant is not. You have dozens, hundreds, perhaps thousands of plant floor assets that are operating in isolated silos. Your people are walking around with clipboards gathering production data, pulling quality reports, reading charts, collecting, collating, and compiling to provide some semblance of information. Or worse yet, you are going without any information at all. Where can you increase productivity? Reduce cost? Improve quality? Without ready access to actionable information you are losing out on a tremendous opportunity to improve your operation and your bottom line.

The Wave7 platform by NultyIQ is specifically designed to put actionable information about your assets into your hands in real time. This cost-effective platform is scalable; you can start with just one asset and add on from there. There is no need for a massive infrastructure; the Wave7 Droplets connect to your assets and communicate with each other forming their own network. Your data can be stored in the cloud, eliminating the need for investment in servers and storage. Wave7 is a native HTML5 application, which means it seamlessly integrates with all mobile devices so that you can access your plant floor information securely from your phone, iPad, or laptop. You can access this information securely from anywhere, at any time. Wave7 provides a variety of ways to turn your plant floor data into easy to understand, actionable information using modern, intuitive graphical displays and reports.

About us: NultyIQ (pronounced NEW-LIT-IK, and short for new analytics) is a sister company to Concept Systems (, a national award-winning control system integrator and automation solution provider. NulytIQ exists to fulfill a single, focused mission: Turn data into actionable information in real time, driving bottom line gains for our customers. NulytIQ’s Wave7 platform is built on the experience and knowledge gained over 15 years of providing plant floor control and automation systems to hundreds of large and small manufacturers across a wide variety of industries. We saw a common theme: factories operate in small, isolated islands of automation. And the information products on the market supposedly designed to connect these silos were costly and complicated, requiring a huge initial investment in servers, databases, software, and licensing fees. They were also built on old technology, limiting their ability to serve today’s need for Big Data. Finally, these platforms were built to serve the needs of other industries, not the ones we were serving day in and day out. We decided to turn the market on its head and take a completely fresh approach to this challenge. That’s how and why Wave7 was born; to provide a cost-effective, flexible, scalable information platform built on modern software architectures.

Real-time, Actionable Data at a More Affordable Cost

wave7-ipad-200x160Concept Systems works with manufacturers in many different industries. And while they each face different automation challenges, there are some striking similarities.

One thing we see in common, especially with directors and executives, is the desire to have actionable data presented in a clear and concise dashboard. They want to be able to see instantly how a machine, a production line or an entire manufacturing floor is performing.

Often companies gather data after the fact – at the end of a shift, week or month. But that doesn’t allow managers to make decisions and corrections when they matter most. Companies that have easy access to real-time performance metrics can make timely decisions that have a direct impact on the bottom line.

Software providing this kind of information has been available for a while, but it typically has been offered via a large enterprise-wide platform. Concept Systems is excited to announce that this is about to change. Concept is proud to introduce Wave7’s Starter Kit, a powerful real-time performance data interface offered at a far more affordable price point.

Concept Systems’ sister company Wave7, has developed a software appliance that resides on top of a machine center control system, and provides Key Performance Indicator dashboards to Web-enabled computers or tablets and smartphones. The appliance has been designed to fill a visible need in the market – especially for small to mid-size organizations that are looking for lower cost and quick deployment.
