RECESSION: USING CMMS TECHNOLOGY AS A COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE

No economy in the world is immune to an economic recession and the recession wind seems to be blowing across Africa. Businesses in the continent are laying of staff in large chunks at the best or closing down operations at the worse. Business managers believe this is the time to scale down drastically on expenditures of any kind. Why not? It just makes sense. Investing in a computerised maintenance management system (CMMS) solution at this time seems economically unreasonable. Is it?

Victor, one of our consultants says that there are compelling reasons why investing in a CMMS solution at this trying times lends itself as a competitive advantage. He has listed a few good reasons in this article:

  1. Immediately Reduce Operating Costs:

Implementing a computerised maintenance management system offers tools which can be used to track and monitor operating costs.

  • Reduced Contractor/Labour Costs: Sorting out your maintenance operations properly means engaging contractors can be done more effectively. Managers can get the most of the hourly wages of contractors.
  • Reduction in stocked items: Having a clear picture of your maintenance needs and the required parts helps managers reduce cost on stocked items by avoiding huge expenses on unnecessary parts. These saving can be used to service other parts of the business.
  • Reduce asset down times: For every production asset down time, the manager incurs losses. Managers can avoid costly down times by effectively managing asset maintenance.

Since March 2013 – Codub has been providing Maintenance Connection CMMS solution for AMFacilities Ltd.

March 2013 – Codub provides Maintenance Connection CMMS solution for AMFacilities Ltd.
Codub is pleased to announce the award of an international contract to provide a robust Computerised Management (CMMS) Software for AlphaMead Facilities & Management Services Ltd. AlphaMead carried out a detailed comparison of various top products in the market including SAP, Archibus, IBM Maximo, CAFM, FacilitiesDesk, Planon to name but a few before choosing Maintenance Connection CMMS.

AlphaMead wanted a fully web-based solution to negate the need to install any software on their laptops/computers. The system had to be fully hosted by the vendor outside her network (cloud services � SAAS). Ease of use was also another critical factor in choosing Maintenance Connection. The CMMS solution proposed will help monitor planned and unplanned maintenance works and budget as well as keep a track of costs spent on utilities like diesel. This software will give AlphaMead an idea of where they can make savings for her clients i.e. ‘cut the fat’ so to speak.

The Maintenance Connection CMMS software will help AlphaMead serve her clients even better by preventing expensive repairs before they occur, improve the efficiency of routine maintenance tasks and prevent costly downtime. In addition, tracking preventative maintenance (PM) will extend the life of the equipment of her clients, which will lead to savings on capital expense. Also, AlphaMead want greater control over staff workloads, scheduling, and inventory management, which the system will provide. The implementation commenced on the 1st of March 2013 and should last no more than two (2) months.
AlphaMead Facilities and Management Services company (AM Facilities) is a foremost professional Facility Management company with over 300 staff and offices across Nigeria and Ghana. Currently, AM Facilities provide FM professional services to many top oil and gas companies including Shell Petroleum where they are the managers for all their offices, industrial, recreational and residential estates in Port Harcourt and Warri covering office space for over 10,000 staff and residential accommodation for over 1,000 families. AlphaMead Facilities is the first facility management company in Nigeria to be ISO 9001:2008 certified by The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) and The ANSI-ASQ (American National Standards Institute/American Society of Quality Control) National Accreditation Board (ANAB) respectively.

The Maintenance Connection solution is a full featured Resource and Maintenance Management Software System which has been designed as a web-based product. It provides a simple and intuitive interface which can be used for all aspects of a state or an organisation’s helpdesk, maintenance and project management requirements.

Maintenance Connection was named 2005 Product of the Year in Plant Engineering’s 18th Annual Product of the Year Award. Maintenance Connection won the Gold Award in the General and Maintenance Software category. The Plant Engineering “Product of the Year Award” is a well-recognised, well-respected honour that has been given for the last 24 years and the annual competition is considered the most prestigious in the Industry in America.

Codub Wins Contract. University of Hertfordshire (UH) awards Asset Survey and Barcoding to Codub

September 2015 – Another contract win for Codub at University of Hertfordshire
Codub Consulting Ltd. is pleased to announce the award of a contract to carry out an asset survey and bar coding of the assets at BioPark, a specialist and unique facility that was founded in 2006. The BioPark is owned by the University of Hertfordshire and developed with funding from the East of England Development Agency (EEDA).

BioPark has extensive suites of offices, fully-fitted high-tech chemistry and biology laboratories over a 6,000 sqm of rentable space.

As part of the contract, all the assets are to be bar-coded. Codub has configured the screens specifically for BioPark to allow the ability to collect relevant information about any type of asset. The application includes drop downs to ensure data consistency as well as data integrity.

Codub will be surveying all the properties on site and all the engineers are using the industry approved Motorola held PDAs to do the asset collection, which eliminates the need for paperwork and all the associated errors and time delays. The PDA packs the power of a cell phone, two-way radio, bar code scanner, digital camera and mobile computer.

Codub Consulting has utilised the experience and knowledge gained in asset management and maintenance and already University of Hertfordshire are seeing the benefit of the process. Bar code labels are already been attached to each asset as part of the tagging process. The end result will be that the university will have a detailed and accurate asset register. The asset register will also provide further information about the condition of their assets.

If you need more information on how Codub can quickly and affordably deliver accurate asset/equipment registers, please contact our senior engineer by emailing –
