“Maintenance personnel need sample results with them in the field or on the plant floor, not tucked away in the maintenance office,” POLARIS Laboratories® Chief Executive Officer Bryan Debshaw said. “HORIZON Mobile pushes alerts to users so they can save and extend the life of their equipment before serious damage occurs.”
The mobile app features a customization push notification feature users can adjust by fluid type and severity level. Alerts lead users to a sample report summary with the overall severity and maintenance recommendations. The full report also can be downloaded as a PDF to analyze wear metals and trending data.
“HORIZON Mobile allows us to connect with our customers in a way we never have before, and we aren’t done yet,” Debshaw said. “We’re upgrading the app this fall so users can submit sample data to us through the app itself. They’ll avoid countless hours of paperwork by entering the equipment hours while standing next to the equipment. That’s value no one else in the oil analysis industry can offer.”
In addition, POLARIS Laboratories® plans to expand the mobile app to Android devices to serve the vast majority of POLARIS Laboratories® customers and set the standard of the oil analysis industry. HORIZON Mobile is available for download from the Apple App Store.
