Schlegel UK seals Mainsaver CMMS deal
21st January 2015
Schlegel UK, leading European manufacturer of door and window sealing systems, has selected Mainsaver CMMS for its manufacturing facility in Bedfordshire, Spidex Software has announced.
Mainsaver is expected to support the establishment of a new preventative maintenance (PM) regime at the site, whose top-quality ISO-accredited range of architectural hardware products is distributed across four continents.
Gary Williams, the company’s Divisional SHE Compliance Manager, led the evaluation of competing CMMS products.
“We started our CMMS assessment solely with planning and scheduling of preventative maintenance in mind” he says “but when we saw Mainsaver, it really opened our eyes to a number of other ways we could improve. That made Mainsaver a front-running contender pretty much from the outset.”
After an extensive pan-European comparison exercise, carried out over a number of months and which examined the comparative features in a number of CMMS solutions, Schlegel finally decided on Mainsaver.
Gary Williams: “The whole look and feel of Mainsaver suited our requirements best. It has all the features we needed straight away, while enabling us to add further modules later to support future planned strategies.”
“We were particularly impressed with the range of reporting functions Mainsaver offers. These will enable us to quickly identify any maintenance issues which may require extra attention and to carry out root-cause analysis to remediate them effectively.”
“Overall, Mainsaver simply represented the best value for money. In future, we expect that the data held in Mainsaver will contribute invaluable supporting evidence to high-level decision-making on future capital investment here.”
Spidex Managing Director Jonathan Starling commented “It is a terrific pleasure to be working with an important specialist manufacturer such as Schlegel, whose selection of Mainsaver is further evidence of our software’s ability to operate effectively across the full spectrum of operating environments. We look forward to a long and happy association.”
