Fusion Reporting Tool

Industrial Technology Systems Ltd (ITS) has developed FUSION, a zero footprint, web-based reporting and data entry tool with an optional back-office calculation engine for producing process accounting data. The award-winning product, based on an AspenTech InfoPlus.21 or other database, was designed in 2000 for companies with locked down desktops and is ideal for regulated industries. 

FUSION provides a single repository for all operational data. Its flexible and simple browser enables users to configure screens easily and efficiently, and to identify faults quickly. When integrated with an AspenTech InfoPlus.21 or other database, FUSION enables users to manage weekly, monthly and yearly (periodic) operating reports, process loss accounting, batch information etc. Users can interrogate the data in the reports and using the context linked FUSION toolbox, see how values are derived by drilling down through the calculation chain to the root of the data.

FUSION has been designed to work over web-based technologies. The core configuration is maintained on a server, and viewing/data entry is via web clients - this means there is only a single maintenance arena and low ownership cost.
