Like many maintenance operations, Luis and his team didn’t have inventory tracking in place before MPulse. Luis started with creating simple inventory records and using MPulse PartLink to link those inventory items and their unit costs to work orders and assets.
Then Luis and his parts room team took the next step by using MPulse to track and report on consumption of those items. They also were able to identify needed parts faster, preventing downtime while the techs were waiting for parts. Plus, they saved more money by reducing inventory shrinkage and bloat.
Luis discovered his employees were spending significant time re-entering and maintaining data, such as inventory and purchasing information, in multiple systems.
To address this problem, Luis turned to the MPulse DataLink Integration Adapter to significantly reduce data sharing complexity. MPulse DataLink Integration Adapter enabled his local IT team to quickly and easily move data in and out of MPulse using an intuitive interface, saving a lot of time and duplicate effort.
Just these three things alone have helped Luis and his team control the costs of maintenance.
“It sounds simple, and it was—as soon as we had MPulse,” he said. “I don’t know why we waited so long.”
