What Planning & Scheduling Experts Say

Incredible Results

AKWIRE helped to reduce our average TTR (Time To Repair) from 27 days to 7 days over a three-month implementation period equating to approximately $25M in savings (bringing on lost production). This was for Maximo priorities 1-7 and with a staff that was reduced by 40 percent. After the initial phase 1 was so successful, we formed a PIT (Process Improvement Team) and further reduced the TTR by an additional 20 percent.

I have no doubt that without AKWIRE and the incredible staff at Solufy support, we would not have been successful in this incredible feat.

They Get It!

The best thing about Solufy is they understand planning and scheduling from a maintenance perspective rather than an IT perspective.

All too often, IT people think that if you plan a job for five hours, it should take five hours. IT-centric geared CMMS software is designed around perfect job plans and perfect schedules that are just not real life.

Better Technical Solution

I liked AKWIRE vScheduler over alternatives because the processing happens on a Citrix server vs utilizing CPU on the Maximo application servers.

I had heard and seen demos in the past that showed alternative solutions using a lot to process all this data. So to have it off loaded onto a different server, seemed like a better technical solution.

100 Times Better!

I'm very impressed with AKWIRE! This is hands down 100 times better than alternatives and much more end user friendly.

This makes everything that is 'clunky and cumbersome' in IBM Maximo, easy! Maximo is very, very difficult to use and it’s cumbersome.

AKWIRE is very intuitive. With Maximo, it might take me hours or days—in some cases, I haven’t even found the ability to do some things.

With AKWIRE, I can do the same things in minutes… seconds, in some cases.”

Return on Investment

We are trying not to add more enterprise systems or software, so we critique any new software needs and really try to force an intelligent decision on whether it is really needed, and provides a return on investment.

AKWIRE was chosen against these standards and provides us value every day.

What really impressed me was that every question I asked, he had an answer for it immediately. I really became intrigued. He was the only one who could talk the same lingo as me. He knew what I was talking about; he knew what I wanted.

As we were talking, he's actually configuring his software not only to answer my questions but to show me the answer.

Speedy and Efficient

Using AKWIRE enables me to quickly find information against a work order in an efficient manner.

I can update more than one record at once, and view more than one record at once. That can help tremendously with the speed of finding, absorbing, and analyzing information.
