The Home Page is where you will see all your plants, add new plants to your fleet, and manage user access to the platform. If you only have a single facility, you will see a single graph, or block.  You can click on any block to visit that facility’s main site.

Select a KPI to Display

Each block contains a single plant KPI. You can select the same KPI for each plant, or different KPIs for the various facilities.

Add a plant

The Home Page also allows you to add a new plant to your fleet. Selecting the “Add New Plant” option launches a plant setup wizard that takes you step by step into setting up a new facility. Once set up, a new block will appear on Home Page, allowing you to click into that plant and set up that plant’s forms, KPIs and alerts.

Users Tab

The Users tab allows you to create users within a plant. Users can be assigned to a single plant or multiple plants. Use the "Add New User" to activate the user Wizard that walks through the setup process.

User Roles

Access to various screens, feature editing and creation capabilities are limited by user roles. There are 6 roles on the Pani ZED™ platform:


  1. Account Owner/Admi– this is created by Pani when the account is created. This role is not editable and cannot be deleted.
  2. Admin – this is the site administrator and has full configuration control and management of users at assigned sites. This role can be edited and deleted by the Account Owner Admin.
  3. Area Manager – this role is for a user that is responsible for one or more plants. This role can change most aspects of site configuration and manage users at individual plants and at individual sites.
  4. Plant Manager – similar access rights to the Area Manager, however they can only add users and edit features at their one plant.
  5. Process Analyst – can create new dashboards, analytics, and adjust some KPI settings.
  6. Operator – this user can enter data into the system, but cannot configure reports, views or users.

The role labels are descriptive only. If you want a particular operator to be able to edit reports, for example, set their access to Process Analyst or Plant Manager.
