The world is changing faster than ever – and so is business. One of the many risks related to fast-paced transformation is that the ability to process information declines over the years. This may lead to a notion that problems connected to documentation and information management are inevitable.
Do you know how much time your service & maintenance staff spends on searching for information?
The efficiency of your service and maintenance organization has a direct impact on your plant’s reliability and availability.

The good news is that the situation can be fixed with effective asset information management, including fast and easy access to required technical information.
