Drylock Technologies Sustains 70% Planned Work Regimen

Drylock Technologies Ltd, formerly known as Presto Absorbent designs, manufactures, and sells disposable adult incontinence products. As a company-wide initiative, Drylock wanted to transition from a firefighting maintenance mode to an approach that was more proactive. To support this shift, the company looked for a CMMS system to link pictures, procedures, and documents to work orders. When the company’s API Maintenance Manager found eMaint, he leveraged the system’s robust feature set to receive buy in from the corporate management level. 
The company began implementing the system with work scheduling and labeling assets. The team also ensured standardization for aspects of the system such as such as asset structure and nomenclature of spare parts. Jason also developed a dashboard for the entire team to see when PMs and production are planned, and to make scheduling for group work easier.
With eMaint, the Drylock team is able to process nearly 1,200 work orders monthly and manage that work effectively. Jason is consistently impressed by the support and flexibility of the software, and plans to continually expand the company’s usage. Since implementing eMaint in 2013, Drylock has been able to:

  • Achieve 50% reduction in scrap/waste
  • Sustain 70% planned work regimen
  • Improve productivity by adjusting PM schedule
  • Sustain incremental improvements to efficiency and effectiveness
  • Support company-wide culture change and transition to world-class maintenance
