When PROGNOST Systems project managers finalize the installation of your new system, it does not mean you are on your own. Our Customer Support team stands by in the critical moments, e.g. during initial system and machinery start-up and during the entire lifecycle of the installation.
We support all PROGNOST® users to reach their ultimate goal:to successfully monitor and protect their machinery and to operate their Rotating Equipment reliably and efficiently.
Remote access to customer system
Your PROGNOST Customer Support contact has remote, online access to your system*) and supports you based on monitoring analyses and system outputs you see, both in parallel and in realtime. This is the best way to answer all questions; from machine diagnoses to measuring loops or the DCS connection. All answers are answered based on the data of your system.
*) 97% of all PROGNOST®-NT installations are equipped with the remote access functionality.
Machinery Health Reports and Root Cause Analyses
Machinery Health Reports are written status reports compiled by the diagnostic experts of PROGNOST Systems. The conclusions and recommendations are based on the monitoring data of your PROGNOST® system. The health reports provide high-quality assessments operators can rely on. They can be ordered on an annual, half-year, quarterly or monthly basis.
The Weekly Re-assessment transfers the regular analysis workload from your desk to the PROGNOST customer support team. Thus you get the best system output with the lowest effort.
In case of machinery anomalies, On-demand reports with root cause analysis help identifying the most efficient maintenance measures.

No user will be left alone
Initial start-ups of new compressors, machines with a failure history, production assests going back online after overhauls – these are the critical moments in which online monitoring and diagnostic expertise is required.
The importance and complexity of a full-function monitoring system require ongoing support so you can exploit the full benefits of the system and maximize your return on investment. The support you receive comes in the form of training and assistance to help you fully utilize your system, as well as in continuous product development to keep your system state-of-the-art for the longest possible time span.
The most beneficial customer support contracts are those that give you flexibility. The amount of support you need will decrease over time. Our service contracts allow you to step-down the level of support, enabling you to pay only for the services you need as you and your personnel grow in knowledge of the system.
