said Sargent. "By applying our Predictive Efficiency Index to core processes,
LumaSense customers can realize immediate and sustainable efficiency where
just a
1% gain can translate into big numbers for a company's bottom line.

"Experts estimate that as much as 5% of a company's resources routinely go
down the drain due to waste, inefficiency, and aging plants, infrastructure
and equipment," Sargent continued. "Industrial companies account for
approximately $16 trillion of global world product (GWP). Conservatively
speaking, if 5 – 10% of that is squandered, that translates to over $1
trillion in readily preventable loss – a $1 trillion waste and inefficiency
tax that trickles down to consumers in the form of higher prices and to a
nation's economy in the form of lower competitiveness. Saving just 1% of that
loss could eliminate an estimated $160 billion annual drag on global
