WideTech provides industrial data-reporting solutions. We offer our tool, WiDE, and the business expertise of our engineers. The developer department is responsible for WiDE.
First of all, we develop a unique software that meets the needs of the industry. Secondly, we provide the necessary technical support.
We seek to maintain positive momentum, true team spirit and freedom of action.
We develop a positive atmosphere and maintain permanent contact between colleagues as part of a talented and dynamic team.
We believe in personal development. We encourage continuous learning by dedicating four hours a week to training, education or testing new ideas.
We commit to quality code and software. We organize systematic proofreading of codes and regularly test it externally with dedicated softwares.
“… As a Developer I have a real impact on the features and the product…”.
I graduated as a Civil Engineer in 2007 with a focus on Chemistry. I was the first employee at WideTech. I’m a self-trained developer and have been the manager of the software development department since 2013.
One of the biggest challenges we encounter in the software-development team is that technology is always evolving. We have to constantly adapt Wide, develop it and adopt the latest best practices, such as Angular or React…
Basically, I have to challenge myself every day.
WiDE is a web application that we developed in-house. I’m proud of it and I enjoy developing it further. The product is used around the world and has a real customer impact, so this is a major responsibility.
WiDE is an evolving product. It uses various technologies, such as AngularJS, .net, external APIs, processing Python algorithms, SQL and the PostgreSQL database. In fact, we are training, learning and growing along the way.
The atmosphere is particularly good and we progress using team coaching and sharing. I think that we’re constantly evolving on both a human and technical level.
As a Developer, I have a real impact on the features and the product. In simple terms, we bring our clients’ and colleagues’ ideas to life.
Vice President of Gas Network at OQ says:
“The AGR system has improved the reliability of the gas measurement process as well as provided assurance on the quality of the data. The performance of hardware and software systems are continuously monitored therefore minimizing or even suppressing bad actors. Process efficiency and effectiveness are key business objectives, which are very much satisfied by the WiDE software solution. It also provides transparency and auditable trail.”
Site Technical Manager at Yara Tertre says:
“Compared with other time series data analysis tools, WiDE no code software platform has many features allowing operators, engineers and plant managers to monitor and analyze industrial process data very efficiently (for all kinds of purposes: site wide material balances, process performance monitoring, emissions monitoring, etc.), to in the end decide if process optimization or maintenance activities are needed or not.
WiDE user friendly web-based interface ensures an easy onboarding and acceptance of users (with minimum knowledge transfer). The all-in one user interfaces eases applications maintenance activities: users are free to update their applications to reflect changes in the processes (new measurements, new equipment, new receipes, etc) and/or match their own business needs.”
Chemical Process Engineer at Chemium says:
“WideTech offers a powerful no code software solution with a tailor-made approach and a qualitative relation to its clients.”
Global Platforms and Infrastructure, Yara France says:
“From an IT view, WiDE software platform is very easy to install, integrate and deploy into OT/IT environments. We have developed with WideTech team a production accounting system based on WiDE. It makes the bridge between operations and business in an efficient way so that people are best informed.
In few words, it collects and aggregates measurement data from the process, generates information (KPIs, etc.) and escalates that information into our ERP system, all this in an automated way. On top of that, WideTech technical support (IT and business wise) is simply first class… So just “Think WiDE, start small and scale fast!”
Team Lead Digital Assets, IPCOS Belgium says:
“In an increasingly complex landscape of digital solutions for industry 4.0, WiDE offers a great, user-friendly solution for plant users to compile their production reports easily, as well as following plant performance. The combination of a state-of-the-art integration with data historians, user manual inputs and figures approval mechanisms makes it a favourite for the end users.
The integration with ERP’s allows supporting corporate workflows while keeping a great user experience for the factories. Last but not least, WideTech takes an approach where the product is complemented with significant training to ensure that the users can maintain the solution on their own, which is often the secret ingredient for long-term acceptance.”
Specialist Engineer, John Cockerill Environment Belgium says:
“We deployed WiDE on a pilot unit installed in a container, to monitor and fine tune a new waste water treatment process. We found sereval advantages in using WiDE with respect to the “old way” of gathering and analysing data: ease of connection to the SCADA and its database, friendly dashboards completely configurable by the user, use of Python scripts to derive data and KPIs from the system sensors and raw data,...
The learning curve was also quite fast due to the good support from WideTech’s team and the comprehensive help interface of the software. There is definitely an added value in using such a solution to monitor and understand an industrial process.”
Energy & CO2 Coordinator says:
“As suggested by the name, WiDE software allows step by step development for a large range of applications.
The Energy monitoring deployed ensures a common vision for operators, engineers and plant managers to view our Refinery efficiency with a dedicated and user friendly interface.
With WiDE we have saved working time which has enabled it to be spend on real added value tasks. Additionally, we have improved our monitoring system of refinery assets and on top of that made data more reliable and available to all employees.”
Manufacturing expertise department director says:
“WiDE est un outil qui nous a permis de simplifier notre processus de reporting incluant suivi de stock, production, mises au mille, manques à produire,... Il est simple d’utilisation, évolutif voire sans limites. Une équipe projet très à l’écoute et disponible.
L’interfaçage avec nos outils PI/PIAF est très simple à mettre en place. Nous avons restructuré nos données en amont afin de les consolider et maintenir l’outil de façon simple, ce qui a du bon aussi.
2 déclarations SAP en 1 clic ! Et le reporting part en automatique !”
Process Engineer says:
“The WiDE platform has been selected by Inovyn to improve its plant energy performance monitoring system. After a short training, we can say that WiDE is easily configurable and usable and allows to calculate the requested parameters.
At Inovyn, WiDE is used on daily basis to quickly detect any deterioration of plant energy consumptions (steam, electricity, etc.). The main objective is to check whether the plant is in an optimized configuration and if not, take actions in view of improving its energy efficiency and thus its profitability.
From a workflow view, WiDE gathers an aggregates the process measurement data, performs energy indices calculations and alarms in case of deviation, all this in an automated way. It eases the internal monitoring process and allows to get rid of the many Excel files developed by different people, never easy to decode, use and implement when dealing with live data in a production environment.”
