Fast Automations vendor independence enables us to evaluate equipment and systems from an unbiased perspective, providing our customers with a comprehensive report that addresses safety, operability, reliability, maintainability, and adherence to corporate standards, industry best practices and legal regulations.

Our experience enables us to assess and report on the facilities automation structure and on its automation vendors, to provide a comprehensive report on the control system, system software, and support structures.

Our proven audit methodology can be customized to address exact client asset requirements including instrumentation, electrical, automation, applications, network systems, cyber security, and support.

The result of the audit process is to produce a report that provides an up to date overview of the facilities control system, identifies and documents deficiencies, prioritises recommendations, and provides associated cost estimates to rectify identified system deficiencies.
