According to the online dictionary, the word pragmatic is defined in the following way:
"dealing with things sensibly and realistically in a way that is based on practical rather than theoretical considerations"
Isn't that how you want to deal with your company assets? Pragmatically.
Consider your personal vehicle. You get the oil changed, rotate the tires, and keep up with basic maintenance on the vehicle, not because you enjoy spending your money on vehicle maintenance, but because it is pragmatic when considering the life of the vehicle and how long you intend to keep it.
Theoretically, you could not change the oil in your vehicle and see how long it lasts, but is that really wise? It becomes highly likely that the day you need the vehicle most is the day that the lack of maintenance will catch up with you. Then what? Consider the expense of not only the vehicle repair or replacement, but the time and productivity you lost that day.
So, if you take a pragmatic approach to your personal vehicle, why wouldn't you with company assets?
What if the tracking, maintenance, and management of assets could be achieved in one place?
Too often, asset values are tracked, but actual maintenance records and sometimes the location of assets are a bit more ambiguous. Enter in, Infor's EAM asset management software. A solution that manages all aspects of company assets.
Imagine the ability to determine what is reliable and what is unreliable within the production process. The kind of information that increases uptime, decreases downtime, and provides information about all aspects of the process.
It is like having the message that pops up in your personal vehicle letting you know that maintenance is required, or you have a tire that is low. Only, this system intuitively delivers that kind of message for your company.
No surprises, just added reliability within the process.
Another benefit of Infor EAM software is the capability to document compliance. Compliance risk is a concern for most companies, but especially within the pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and personal-care industries. There are US Food and Drug Administration records that must be maintained and presented. These critical records must be easily accessible and meticulously maintained in order to avoid costly fines and downtime.
EAM software also assists in the determination of positive scheduling changes, under-performing lines, and an asset's availability.
It is like lifting the hood of your car and having all the key components updating you on how much longer they will last, whether maintenance is required. Total visibility into the hardware that keeps moving you forward.
