Our experience has shown that clients are most successful when the appropriate personnel are trained during the development, installation, and start-up phases of the project.

Our staff experts will review your maintenance reports with you and, based on your agreement, our technicians will procure the necessary parts, including all lubricants and cleaners, and work with you to plan and perform the necessary maintenance and repair procedures.

Inspections can extend equipment life, reduce breakdowns, increase worker safety, and increase systems performance and capabilities. Our semi-annual, quarterly, and monthly PM inspections supplement your maintenance and identify potential problems before they become costly.
Modernization and Rebuild Programs
As facilities and equipment ages, especially for facilities that have not been well maintained, it can sometimes be beneficial to integrate modernization or rebuild programs into a routinely performed maintenance programs.

Resident and Startup Services
The PULSE Resident Services program, also available as Startup Services, provides the highest level of performance assurance and equipment care available. In this program, we cross train technicians so they are understand the nuances of your site and have the ability to perform level 1 and level 2 troubleshooting for all software, controls and electro-mechanical solutions on your site and have direct access to level 3 engineers, if needed. This minimizes the time required to work through a standard remote support process and provides the fastest resolution time possible. All Resident and Startup Services programs are custom tailored to ensure you have the exact support team that meets your needs.
Advanced Maintenance and Repair Programs
PULSE site teams are trained to provide comprehensive onsite services for every line of equipment in your environment and your operation. This provides a valuable alternative to leveraging visiting technicians that are usually only trained on a single line of equipment. For complex, highly automated environments, a small number of onsite service team members can provide advanced maintenance and repair services for multiple lines of equipment.
Onsite Support, Expert Diagnostics and Troubleshooting
PULSE site teams are trained to provide onsite support for operations, software, e.g. warehouse execution systems and warehouse control systems, controls and automated equipment. This can be provided as a post project commissioning startup program or, for large facilities, in a permanent site role. Our site support teams resolve problems quickly because they provide level 1 and level 2 troubleshooting and escalated quickly to the right level 3 engineers, if needed.
Once a project has been commissioned and the equipment has been turned over to the operational team, there can be a temporary performance drop that occurs while the operational team acclimates to owning the new system. This is where PULSE Site Startup services can bridge the gap between project and plant ownership. By leveraging knowledgeable, custom trained technicians, your PULSE Startup team can provide combined operational support, technical support and perform routine inspections and preventative maintenance while supporting your team as they rise through the learning curve. Once your team is up to speed and independent, the Site Startup program can be converted to a remote site support program.
