John Schmidt, President, Industrial Sales, Americas, says: “By making the technology behind the GoPlant software a part of our offering, we will strengthen our customers’ task management and inspection ability, turning the manual data collection process into actionable information for the operator. This supports our aim of helping them improve the performance and output of their machinery.”
