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.
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.
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.Read more about this
