Flowserve FLOWSYNC

The Purpose: Most actuators are in hazardous or hard-to-reach areas. A smarter way to control your actuator equipment — all while working from safe, comfortable distances up to 20 meters, or 66 feet.

The Strategy

Research showed that converting the physical dials and commands on an actuator to a digital app wasn’t enough. Customers wanted more, they wanted to use familiar touch-screen commands, securely connect to smart actuators via Bluetooth to configure them, or change settings remotely. They wanted to know the actuator’s overall health, confirms its position, and check its voltage and torque. We wanted to push even further by allowing the user to export and import configuration data quickly allowing a user to configure and commission one actuator or multiple units faster in the workshop or at the installation site.

The Beginning

The insights gained from the led workshops, research, and analysis drove us to think bigger. Led and collaborated with stakeholders, vendors, and designers to develop the name, and branding, design system, and guidelines for FlowSync.

A Consistent Experience

We applied a uniform user experience by using the RedRaven design language from the Insight Portal. This allows the user experience to be seamless with similar components, iconography and styles.

Video Simplifies the Concept

Videos describing key technologies like LoRaWAN and introducing technologies for valves to allow customers to envision applications in their environments.
