Hoyt Archery Company, manufacturing bows and archery accessories in the US since 1931, needed a specialized arrow in their quiver to be able to take corrective, reactive, and preventive maintenance information and accurately forecast labor requirements to minimize downtime. They selected eMaint X3 as an affordable, flexible and userfriendly solution to help them plan and track labor, manage inventory and better understand repair costs per asset.
eMaint Enterprises, headquartered in Marlton, New Jersey has been providing maintenance management software solutions since 1986. Their flagship product, X3 CMMS, offers a wide range of features and settings that can be configured to meet an organization’s specific needs. As most Hoyt Archery production equipment is designed and engineered in-house, eMaint X3 is ideally suited to support the unique needs of the Salt Lake City, Utah based manufacturer.
Facilities/Maintenance Manager Rick Groves states “eMaint has given me a complete and permanent record of assets including name plate data and a record of repairs, labor, routine maintenance, parts usage and associated costs per asset which assists in annual budget forecasting.” By tracking downtime, labor, work orders, and maintenance by type, Hoyt Archery built a maintenance history to assist in determining future maintenance costs and achieved a 77% increase in PM compliance. Adding photos of spare parts to the database helped decrease look-up time and improved inventory accuracy, resulting in a 40% reduction in downtime.
With the implementation of eMaint X3, Hoyt Archery found the maintenance history improved budget and labor forecast accuracy in addition to reducing work backlog through improved efficiency in assigning and completing work orders. The eMaint X3 CMMS solution tracked spare parts and locations, thus eliminating hours spent daily searching for parts and, most significantly, allowing Hoyt to obtain a better understanding of repair costs per asset.
