Enable Collaboration across Business Functions
Just like the need to speak a common language, the ability to collaborate is critically important to make the most informed, data-driven decisions around the management of your assets. In the past, this may have meant sharing paper documentation, multiple Microsoft Excel files, or even in-passing conversations on the plant floor.
Today, proper application of digital technology can reveal new opportunities for collaboration around a shared, commonly understood asset base. This shared collaboration also supports better operations between teams, for instance EHS and maintenance, and helps enable better decisions around asset management.
Avoid Headaches with Version Control, Revision History and Better Data Governance
How many times have you updated a document, only to find that one of your peers has already updated it and you need to merge your changes? How many times have you shared outdated documentation and data with your peers, some of which may be used to make important decisions?
Enabling version control, revision history, and data governance is a core component to any asset management strategy. The impact of inconsistent or improperly governed data can be vast, and the clean-up efforts after the fact can take many hours and resources. The application of digital technology allows you to overcome many of these hurdles.
Putting all of this together, we have come out with My Equipment, a cloud-based SaaS offering designed to overcome these hurdles and help customers become truly data-driven.
The result is a trusted source of asset data upon which to collaborate with teammates so that you can make more informed, data-driven decisions.
