Benchmark your company's automation strategy against industry best practice

Take 2 minutes to rate your business and generate a Digital Benchmark Report™. Get insights into the performance of your automation strategy across different areas, and receive recommended actions on how to improve in each.


Generate your Digital Benchmark Report™

Whether you're just starting to look at an investment in automation, or looking to get more from your existing technology, your bespoke Digital Benchmark Report™ will show you where you are in relation to best practice and what your next steps should be.

Automation suppliers, vendors and solutions providers want to sell you the products they've invested huge amounts in developing/getting familiar with, not the technology which best delivers your strategic objectives.

Maximise the return on investment your company sees from its industrial automation. Understand the areas where your current strategy may be falling short and allocate resources to where they'll have most effect.

It takes less than a minute to complete the questionnaire, and another minute for us to deliver a customised PDF report to your inbox:

Why is this service free?

Our business is about helping companies increase their efficiency through better investment in technology, but we know our services won't be a fit for everyone and not everyone is a fit for us. By making our expertise available to all we get to help a larger number of people, and know some will see our approach as a good fit with their objectives and want to take things further.

Who I am and why you should listen to what we say

I'm Richard Banyard, Managing Director of Op-tec Systems; a company experienced in helping organisations, big and small, maximise their returns from automation investment for well over two decades. My team and I gained our expertise working in the process industries, where technology must not only enable continuous improvement, but also meet onerous requirements and function in the harshest environments.

Don't just take my word for it

Here's what a small section of our clients have to say:

Co B logo

"DENSO have been using Op-tec Systems for over 16 years now, for projects of varying size and complexity. Op-tec falls into that small niche market of being able to integrate 'Information Technology' into 'Automation'. It is in this aspect where I have found Op-tec Systems to be second to none"
Simon Warner   Software Engineer

Co C  logo

"For over 9 years Kimberly-Clark's Barrow Mill has used Op-tec for training, project work and service support. They've allowed us to continue using our legacy RS3 DCS, delaying significant capital investment. Op-tec have always provided a high-quality, reliable service and are quick to respond. Having their expertise on-demand allows us to focus on other activities, knowing our control system is in safe hands"
Jamie Mattimore   Electrical Engineer

Co A logo

"Op-tec has assisted Perenco in the supply of engineers with specific project deliverables, which they always achieved ahead of schedule and within budget. Their staff were dedicated, well thought of within Perenco and were often requested to return for extra project work and occasionally for Operational Support"
Allen Goodchild   Maximo Team Leader

Co D logo

"During the 16 years in which Op-tec has worked on Veolia's sites, they have proved to be an outstanding and dependable performer, providing a first-class support package. We are confident in their expertise and abilities"
Keith Leonard   Technical and Performance Director
