  • This already saved me $120 on a car battery! When my car battery died, I decided to try out the EZ Battery Reconditioning method instead of buying a new (expensive) battery. And in just 25 minutes, I reconditioned the battery and it works fantastic again! This already saved me $120 on a car battery! I can�t wait to try this on other batteries now. ➤➤

  13. 13. 13 Vendor landscapeDigital work permit value proposition E-vision Digital work permit Safety Amount of incidents will be reduced and safety will increase because of the risk analysis and the clear communication between maintenance and operations. Efficiency in maintenance and lower costs Field workers waiting time will significantly decrease. Stability of work will increase because foremen have a clear view on work orders with approved work permits. The control room will also have a better overview on which assets are out of order for maintenance work. Improved compliance This allows to meet targets set by different regulations on work safety and workers protection. It also reduces the risks of contractors being at risk and therefore liability towards third party companies. Current market exists out of many small and large players, with different solutions (SAP, web based, SAP Plugin or non SAP). Most of them can be linked to SAP to have a link to work orders. Accenture has a partnership with e-Vision, which offers the most mature digital work permit solution. For our clients we are the implementation partner, and e- Vision is the solution partner.

Decisions and actions based on key insights and understanding lead to valuable outcomes. The opposite is true as well: remember the principle of “garbage in, garbage out”: bad quality data leads to bad outcomes. To achieve the desired business outcome, Asset Analytics can help the business infusing Analytics into the decision making process across the organization. Developments in demand for high quality data at utilities The need for high quality data in the utilities industry increases as new challenges and opportunities arise with developments in digital and changes in the industry The need for high quality data Growing regulatory prescriptions Energy transition More demanding consumersBudget constraints New digital technologies Aging network infrastructure Aging Workforce Collaboration Copyright © 2016 Accenture All rights reserved.
