Long-term service agreements (LTSA)

Uptime and Reliability for Industrial Machinery

Piucture of a Long-Term Service Agreement

The LTSA is the ideal solution for combining a multitude of individual services into one manageable package. It is tailored to the customer's requirements and budget, and can be used by small, medium and large size customers alike. It is a truly value-added function so you get maximum advantages out of your investment, by improving reliability and performance and optimizing the overall uptime of your system (and your monitored machines).

No matter what services are needed, these can all be packaged in a customized frame agreement that can greatly simplify monitoring system management. The LTSA is a partner contract that ensures the monitoring system is in optimal working condition, thus minimizing the chance for system downtime and consequently unscheduled machine shutdowns. It can also include monitoring expertise for increasing monitoring reliability and accuracy.
