Gone are the days when enterprise asset management (EAM) was just a maintenance department responsibility. EAM is now becoming an integral part of organizations focused on operations-centric business approach. It is this market that’s witnessing a tectonic shift in EAM’s capability to serve as critical differentiators. An EAM system have direct impact on the profit and loss (P&L) statement and balance sheet of a business by enabling less unplanned downtime and extended asset longevity. Some of the key reasons of why you should consider implementing EAM within your organization.

  • Compliance with regulatory and industry standards
  • Absence of Data or Data and information stored in multiple information systems
  • Asset management operates like a cost center
  • Losing organizational knowledge through an ageing workforce
  • Increasing asset sophistication and complexity
  • Optimize work order scheduling based on resources, tools, parts availability etc.
  • Reduce maintenance costs and increase Return on Assets
  • Improving Asset utilization and performance
  • Optimize the promised services and efficiencies that can be delivered from the asset
  • Manual and noncompliant safety processes and work permits
  • Need to capture and turn the data flowing from equipment into intelligence

EAM incorporates the management of an enterprise’s assets across different facilities, departments, business units and geographical areas throughout each Asset’s lifecycle. These assets can include plants, buildings, machines, vehicles and infrastructure.
