Together with partners, eSite rolls out a new service concept to digitize industrial plants and construction sites faster and easier than ever before.
The new concept is created to digitize sites with a new 10X factor and is already available all-around in Finland.
During times when travelling to a site is not the best option, eSite digitizes industrial plants, and construction sites in days and makes this virtual site easily available through browsers and mobile devices.
We make it possible for operators, maintenance staff and contractors to visit the virtual plant from their own computer as well as to search and navigate at the site, take pictures, take measures, add information, and collaborate with others.
This improves safety, reduce operating costs, and ensures that projects are delivered in time and within budget.
“Love the problem, not the solution”
During the past months, we have spent majority of our time in the field, learning the way people work at and around operating plants and constructions sites. We have fine tuned our concept while digitizing over fifteen full-size industrial plants as well as talked with operators, maintenance staff, contractors, and industrial service providers to understand what their challenges are today and how their daily work could be improved now that traveling to the site is not always the preferred option. We have put our global field service network into test in nine different countries, even to the extent where we digitized three different sites during the same day, each in a different country.
Now, we roll out our re-engineered eSite solutions – that are immediately available around all major cities in Finland.
We worked hard to boil down the problem worth solving – “how to visit industrial plants and constructions sites remotely, during times when travelling to a site is not the preferred option”.
We practiced long days how to solve this problem, and as the result, we learned to join the best partners together. Now, we roll out our re-engineered eSite solutions – and they are immediately available around all major cities in Finland, including Oulu, Kuopio, Jyväskylä, Tampere, Kokkola, Turku, and the whole Uusimaa region.
10 X faster, easier, and more secure
We have gathered professional companies around operating plants and constructions sites together to deliver a whole new service model that is already available all around in Finland.
10 x better is our objective – 10 x faster, easier, cheaper, and more engaging of your stakeholders. Our new eSite solutions have been created from this point of view.
• It addresses verified needs of people working at operating plants, constructions sites, and key service providers around them.
• Plants and construction sites can be digitized faster than ever before – even during one day.
• This virtual site is accessible with normal web browser or mobile phone.
• The site can be visited remotely, pictures can be shared, accurate measures can be taken, and documents attached into locations at site.
• The digital model can be maintained up-to-date – updates can be done for example weekly, monthly or yearly.
• The solution is scalable and enterprise ready – everything between an individual projects and an enterprise wide roll-out.

• Does not need any up-front investment or development – the payback starts from day one.
• Engages stakeholders around the sites to work more effectively together based on 100 percent accurate situational picture of the conditions at site.
What is also new is that the once captured site can now be maintained up-to-date – updates can be done for example weekly, monthly or yearly, depending how often changes occur at the site.
