A Mobile Maintenance Execution Solution …. Built by technicians, for technicians
SAP is utilized in many organizations as the Plant Maintenance source system. Based on this premise, we are showcasing a case study for the BlueWorx Plant Maintenance solution and its comprehensive capabilities to help streamline, digitize and optimize an organizations SAP plant maintenance on a mobilized platform. This solution has helped transform and improve not only their current in-adequate maintenance solution, but also helped culturally shift, across multiple business units, a non engaged workforce into a fully engaged, collaborative team which resulted in increased efficiency. The BlueWorx Solution has transformed business processes into a paperless workflow to help with waste reduction, regulatory compliance, tool time productivity, downtime reduction and enhanced data driven decision making. This solution was created, by technicians for technicians because of the complexities that the workers face each day and not having the right tools or information at the point of asset, to execute their task in real time for their organization.
We have successfully implemented the BlueWorx Plant maintenance solution for a large and local oil & gas company here in Calgary Alberta. The pain points they faced were not having the ability to carry out and do inspections in an efficient manner, major transmit fails because of the non-ability to upload large data points and cryptic errors messages. The key driver for the client is the ability to easily enhance the out of box functionality to suit their business model and needs. This also gave them enhanced field capabilities and access digital documentation to assist in their daily tasks.
We will showcase the implementation approach, associated project deliverables and ingredients to making this a success for both the customer and S4A IT Solutions. This was all achieved during an unprecedented pandemic which forced us to deliver this project from many continents, all while being delivered fully remote.
About the Presenter:
I am a technology enthusiast, who has had many different paths in life, which has led me to where I am today, and I’m enjoying every damn minute of it.
My career journey has mostly been about being my own boss in the hospitality and real estate industries. My passion has always been to have the latest tech products and to utilize new software or service, to help become more productive and efficient.
I am constantly learning by reading articles, books podcasts and communicating to my peers, about different ways of optimizing efficiencies, whether its me personally or my work, so the next move for me to was find a young and innovative tech company, to expand my capabilities and start contributing to the industry with my very unique set of skills, that I have learned throughout my career. By me not having any direct exposure to the tech industries “status quo” of how things get done, I bring a fresh and unbiased approached mindset into the conversations, to really determine a long lasting and optimal solution, for any organizations as opposed to what I refer to as “surface” solutions, that inhibit a companies future growth in the current marketplace today.
I have learned to listen with an intent to fully question different aspects of a person’s pain points, determine what the needs are and then fully recommending an option that would remediate the current issues. My intentions are to disrupt the existing way of thinking and decision making, to really help open up possibilities for success in an unconventional way. This is how I will help all of my clients and customers, by providing them with the best service and guidance, so they can succeed.
