In the larger picture of a typical supply chain, the value of maintenance for buildings, plants, machinery, and vehicles is often overlooked. Yet without reliable maintenance of this critical equipment, your business can quickly come to a halt. 

During the last 12 months, it turned out that many things that we thought were once impossible are now not only possible, but required. Because of the urgency to facilitate remote work and keep production levels moving, smart maintenance solutions, such as remote assist, started becoming adopted at an accelerated rate. This has allowed companies not only to improve their services during the lockdown, but to develop new business models.

The main advantages of Smart Maintenance

For companies in the manufacturing industry, better maintenance contributes to higher efficiency and continuous improvement, as well as:

  • Preventing downtime
  • Better safety and risk management
  • Higher customer satisfaction

For technical service providers, you’ll gain a key competitive advantage and differentiator, as well as:

  • Effective deployment of personnel
  • New payment models and improved financial stability
  • More sustainable and eco-friendly business operations

Which Maintenance Model is Right for My Business?
