You may have noticed some recent upgrades to your Xylem Online (XOL) interface. Xylem Online is the selection, configuration, and pricing tool for a handful of Xylem’s products, including Vertical Turbine Pumps.
Our Xylem Vertical Turbine applications teams have been working in the new interface for a couple of months now, in order to beta test this new release. We realize that even the most universally celebrated software’s are always a work-in-progress and that there will certainly be more XOL advancements to follow, but we’re really pleased with the updates so far and very excited to share these improvements with all of our users.
