DGS Software Suite
About Valley West Controls
Valley West was founded in 1991 and now develops the DGS Suite of products, which are used in various industries for Data Collection and Analytics, with our primary focus towards the lumber industry in North America.
The DGS ("Data Gathering System") Suite of products includes DGS Collector, DGS Manager, DGS TV, and DGS Mobile. DGS Collector allows you to gather data automatically from PLCs and Optimizers into a central SQL Server database. The application is built modularly, so custom plug-ins are easy to add. With DGS Manager, you can create, view, email and print detailed and summarized reports based on the collected data. DGS TV takes this one step further, and allows you to view up to the minute data, as well as pictures, video and even RSS ticker feeds on TV's around your site. DGS Mobile is our newest product and still in development, which currently allows users to view most reports from DGS Manager.
