EKHO delivers powerful, event driven applications with supporting KPI’s and Dashboards, to drive performance improvement initiatives in Production, Downtime, Quality, OEE, Energy, and Maintenance.

Solution Overview

The Ekho software solution provides a suite of applications designed to integrate with the PI System, to provide a holistic framework for Operational Management and Performance Improvement. Using real time information from the PI System, and integrating with your business systems (ERP, CMMS, LIMS, HSE), Ekho provides applications for managing Production, Production Loss Analysis (PLA), Downtime and Rate Loss, Root Cause Analysis (RCA), Process and Product Quality, Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), and Performance Analysis. Advanced users of the Ekho software also utilize our full Manufacturing Execution System (MES) functionality, and our software for Energy Management (EMIS), and Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM). The latest edition of Ekho also features functionality for Predictive Analytics.


Customers using the Ekho software report increased hard benefits from increased equipment availability, increased production, reduced downtime, improved operational efficiency, improved quality, reduced energy consumption, and more effective maintenance practices. On the softer side, customers report improved visibility of operations, improved communication between shifts and between functional areas, better control, improved decision making based on available information, more accurate cost capture and increased profitability. The holistic view of operations provided by the Ekho software generates recurring business value far in excess of the cost of deployment.

Solution Approach

Ekho allows you to transform your operational data into actionable insights for faster and better decision-making. Our on-premise solution integrates to your operational data infrastructure. Ekho easily connects to your ERP system, CMMS, OPS or MES systems to do more than simply detect, record, and communicate operational data as it is being captured. It allows you to build intelligence from that data and improve your operational efficiency. All implementation, configuration and support of the system is provided by Ekhosoft. Once the software is operational, the complete and integrated toolset of performance data, asset management, operational efficiency, reporting, and advanced KPI’s is available to your team for a more optimized management of portfolio performance. The service is role-based on modular applications inline with your internal organizational needs. Let Ekho help you get the insight that will allow you to do business in an entirely new and more efficient way.
