  • Utility Equipment Management:
    Any Plant Engineering and Maintenance department is incomplete without the management of Utility equipment such as the Generators, Electrical Feeders or Sub Stations, Compressors, Boilers, and other such equipment. FTM™ helps in centralizing the information of these equipments, thus enabling you to effectively monitor and maintain their records.
