MINDS’ PlantManager multi-plant dashboard software gives asphalt plant managers the ability to see critical information on all their plants in one place.

The PlantManager software has opened windows into multiple plant processes that were previously unavailable to the industry, thanks to the use of aggregated data and MINDS’ sophisticated software development expertise

MINDS Inc., a leader in advanced customizable asphalt pant control systems, is pleased to showcase its PlantManager multi-plant dashboard software.
PlantManager, a sophisticated enterprise asset management software, allows asphalt plant managers to gain a 30,000-foot level view of their company’s plants, all in one powerful dashboard. Managers can spot issues at a glance and drill down into critical production and job data.

The PlantManager software has opened windows into multiple plant processes that were previously unavailable to the industry, thanks to the use of aggregated data and MINDS’ sophisticated software development expertise. The software allows all the MINDS-equipped plants in a company’s arsenal to share relevant data, which gives management teams a one-stop-shop for viewing plant production, configuring and generating reports, tracking plant health and more. Managers can use this powerful asphalt plant control system to look deeper into their individual plants, where analog-style gauges make it easier than ever to track the temperature, energy consumption and mix rate of production.

MINDS has continually improved this plant control system for many years and is proud to be able to offer its customers an impressive level of control and customization. The PlantManager asphalt plant software is available to managers who operate multiple sites that use MINDS’ individual plant management systems and can be used on tablets and PCs.

“PlantManager is one of the very exciting applications we have launched in 2019. Customers who have many systems from us wanted a simple, meaningful dashboard to monitor all their asphalt production assets in real-time” says Pierre Vidaillac, CEO of MINDS Inc. “PlantManager does exactly that, and will also be used as an entry point to dive into more granular layers of information. We are building our success through listening to our customers and continuing to develop new technologies and features around our core automation solutions.”
