Fluke Connect creates the software tools that keep the world running – the Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) for the rest of us. Fluke has launched a new breed of SaaS-based CMMS capabilities that eliminates the need for firms to spend 6/7 figures on a traditional software solution. Fluke, part of the Danaher family of companies (NYSE:DHR), is the undisputed leader in handheld Test and Measurement (T&M) with millions of units currently in use and revenue of ~$1 billion per year. As the gold standard in T&M tools, Fluke is uniquely positioned to leverage this collective deployment and market penetration as a Human Machine Interface to enable the automatic transfer of context rich T&M information directly from the field.
Fluke Connect’s cloud/SaaS service combines T&M, asset and labor information to deliver “at your fingertips” visibility, decision support and maintenance workflow. This is a disruptive paradigm shift in the market that enables a low cost, easy to implement system that directly targets visibility and productivity with tangible benefits estimated to generate $150K of maintenance workflow productivity per facility per year, closing the gap of maintenance, operations and finance.
Maintenance technicians make better, faster decisions when they have field access to maintenance records and when they can review measurements in real time with team members and supervisors. Yet records are usually kept back in the office (in written form) and team members are rarely in the same place at the same time. The Fluke Connect™ system solves these problems allowing maintenance technicians to wirelessly transmit measurement data from their test tools to their smart phones for secure storage on the cloud with universal team access from the field. Currently more than 20 Fluke tools connect wirelessly with the app, including digital multimeters, infrared cameras, insulation testers, process meters, and specific voltage, current and temperature models with many more to come.
Technicians can AutoRecord™ measurements and infrared images to Fluke Cloud™ storage from wherever they’re working, without writing anything down. Everyone on the team with a smart phone and the app can see the data. Team collaboration is made easy with ShareLive™ video calls, where technicians can share measurements with other team members in real time, get approvals for repairs or get questions answered without leaving the field.
The Fluke Connect app features EquipmentLog™ history, which allows technicians to assign measurements to specific equipment, creating a cloud-based history of test measurement data for easy access during both troubleshooting and reliability maintenance. The Fluke TrendIt™ application enables technicians to instantly graph data, helping to identify trends and quickly make informed decisions. Fluke Cloud storage is built upon state-of-the-art security, including secure access, electronic surveillance, multi-factor access control systems, built-in firewalls, and encrypted data storage. The Fluke Connect app can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
Fluke Maintenance System, the SaaS offering to be released in 2015, will tie together: 1) Single Step Transfer Measurement (SSTM), which is the broadest set of connected tools and measurement types and is the automatic, error free and paperless transfer of measurements directly from the field to the cloud. 2) Field Information, including time, date and location of measurements; work order scheduling and scenario analysis; validation of routes/workflows; and tracking of labor costs per asset, with key work detail (labor analytics). 3) Asset Health/Planned Maintenance: trend information by asset from the field, measurement and workflow historical data repository, multiple msmts per asset, and insight/visibility. 4) Skills Transfer:
real-time collaboration across maintenance teams from anywhere, asset and safety manuals, in field technical info, and transfer of tribal knowledge.
