X3 Software Solves Mobility and Barcoding Issues for Greater Efficiency.
August 9, 2012 (Marlton, NJ) – Today, eMaint Enterprises, a world leader in cloud-based maintenance management systems (CMMS), announced that Northwest Seafood, a leading global seafood processor, has implemented the eMaint X3 software. Within days of implementation, Northwest Seafood was able to import inventory data, integrate its current barcoding system, and get purchase orders up and running on mobile devices.
“The goal with all of our clients is to improve efficiency, productivity, and profitability,” said Brian Samelson, CEO and President at eMaint Enterprises. “In a global processing facility like Northwest Seafood, sustainability and efficiency are key. In utilizing mobility to increase uptime and automation, these goals become easier to meet.”
Prior to selecting eMaint, Northwest Seafood had two other CMMS systems, but neither supported barcodes or enabled users to enter purchase orders from mobile devices. Barcoding is used in all parts of the facility so technicians can swipe the parts they are using for work orders rather than type part numbers manually. The eMaint X3 system has helped transform the facility into a more efficient workplace.
“We are extremely pleased with the almost instant success of the eMaint X3 system,” said Frank Valdez, Assistant Plant Engineer at Northwest Seafood. “We have been searching for a system that would allow us to go mobile, finding and entering purchase orders anytime anywhere as well as implementing a more efficient barcoding system. We were able to solve these problems with the X3 system within days. eMaint has a niche with CMMS systems and everyone we work with there is very flexible and responsive.”
With the previous CMMS systems implemented at Northwest Seafood, the maintenance team had to use hand-held scanners when working. They also had to call in for purchase orders and could not go out to buy something without contacting the office for purchase numbers. The eMaint CMMS system has allowed all of this to be done anytime, anyplace from any mobile device. Primary work orders are also done in X3.
eMaint’s CMMS system can be tailored to meet the exact specifications of any maintenance, facilities, or operations department and saves companies valuable time and money by better organizing, planning, and managing maintenance activities. eMaint’s systems result in less equipment downtime, greater return on assets, and improved efficiency, productivity and profitability.
“Our primary goals are maintenance, upkeep, production, and uptime,” said Mr. Valdez. “With these goals already being met, we can put almost all of our effort into making sure that all suppliers and processers are following safety and quality control standards as well as staying true to our motto, ‘Healthy, fresh, simple, and sustainable.’”
