The Plan Awareness Process

Plan Awareness ensures your electrically controlled systems are continually monitored, supporting the overall health of your business. This awareness minimizes downtime and increases productivity through continual performance enhancements.

Phase 1: Introductory Conversation

  • We will meet with you to discuss how the Plan Awareness system works, how the program may benefit your organization, and schedule a time to visit your facility.

Phase 2: No-Cost Facility Evaluation Visit

  • We will come to your facility to perform a high-level walkthrough with someone from your organization to document and get more information on what equipment you would like included in your Plan Awareness partnership.
  • Our team will use that information to formulate a proposal for our initial evaluation.

Phase 3: Initial Evaluation

  • After the proposal is agreed up, our team will visit your facility to perform their initial evaluation as outlined above.
  • Files will be generated and all the recorded information will be made available you.
  • We will create a finalized contract and cost for the ongoing Plan Awareness system based on your specific equipment and needs, and provide it for your review. (Please note: The actual system cost cannot be provided until the initial evaluation is performed and recorded so all hardware is known.)

Phase 4: (Optional) Optimized Evaluation

  • If there are any major items for which we recommend storing parameters and programs for future repairs and optimizations, we will discuss them at this time.
  • If you choose to move forward with any of these recommendations, we will provide an additional estimate before retrieving and filing this information.
    • This is typically a one-time fee and the files are stored for the duration of our relationship. The cost can broken out into payments if desired.
