Consulting & Platform Integration

Industrial Automation Consulting that Takes You into the Future

Modern technologies are continually evolving, making it challenging for companies to keep up with automation opportunities and trends that can keep them ahead of the curve, and in front of the competition. That’s where we step in. As forward-looking control system integrators, we help bridge the gap between technology and your business, especially when you don’t have in house resources or the level of expertise required to take on this critical responsibility.

Save Time and Money with Expert Control System Integrators

Improving the efficiency of your current system involves more than just implementing new technologies. Whether your goal is to integrate PLC controls into your existing platform or do a complete system migration, our team of technical and mechanical specialists will consult with you to create and implement a solution designed to optimize performance and processes, for both today and the decades to come.

Live will work with your operators and process engineers to design a custom system that:

  • Meets your specification and expectations;
  • Reduces hardware variability;
  • Reduces unplanned downtime and ensures reliability; and
  • Allows operators to make informed decisions by aligning process controls with key process information.

How We Approach Your Project

We start every new client relationship and project by listening to your vision so that we can design a solution that best meets your requirements. Our consultation and platform integration projects include the following components to make sure we are collaborating towards a common goal:
