Aspen has a trailblazing product. Aspen alkylate petrol is 99 per cent cleaner than conventional petrol. It’s kinder to people, machines and the environment. It’s the fuel for people who care, in other words.
The transition to MaintMaster was occasioned by a need for traceable documentation in parallel with a planned review of fire safety inspection rounds.
“We needed traceability and MaintMaster was a tool that made lightning fast searches possible for anything that had to do with a job,” says Henrik Magnusson, Service Electrician in charge of emergency maintenance at Lantmännen Aspen in Hindås.
Aspen’s maintenance department differs from most other maintenance departments in that in addition to maintenance it also conducts a large amount of project and development work. Henrik has just completed a project management course and he highlights the benefits of bringing clarity to projects by means of a tool that is so simple that everyone can use it in day-to-day operations.
“One great challenge is trying to visualize how we would like to retrieve project data at every level at a later stage,” says Henrik. “Ours is a small organization and we use many contractors for our jobs, something which demands traceability and documentation in order to take good decisions.”
For Aspen’s part, good decisions in this case concern focusing on improvements and systematic maintenance in order to safeguard operations. These things had long stood at the top of their wish list. Previously, Aspen had used AreticsT7 but had just transitioned to MaintMaster following a conversion project.
“The transition to MaintMaster could not have been smoother; Björn Lindberg at MaintMaster is a consummate professional. The conversion project took a few months, but it was problem-free and required minimum effort from us as customers,” says Henrik.
Today, all inspection rounds and documentation are implemented. The daily Green Cross risk identification procedure is in place and the organization uses MaintMaster as a journal in which it enters everything that concerns projects on a daily basis.
Continually speeding up the work order process has become reality today. Previously, things were archived in ring binders, but today they are just three mouse clicks away.
“The material values we are out after are time saving, traceability and having everything available at a single point, something that is possible with MaintMaster, which offers so much more than just maintenance. It acts as our journal and contains everything we need for making good decisions,” concludes Henrik.
