Asset awareness on an entirely new level
All companies are dependent on critical assets, whether they are a fleet of
trucks or a plant full of production equipment, and caring for those assets is
crucial. Traditionally, organizations have had to rely on multiple software solutions
to meet the specific needs of different asset types. These solutions, however,
provide only a partial view of an organization’s total enterprise assets, making
it difficult to identify areas for performance improvement. As a result,
organizations don’t have the asset visibility they need to achieve the
operational excellence they seek.
Maximo® Enterprise takes the power, performance and possibilities of asset
management to an entirely new level. Built on a single software platform,
Maximo Enterprise delivers the most comprehensive view of all asset types
– production, facilities and transportation – across your enterprise. This holistic
perspective, the foundation of our Strategic Asset and Service Management
solutions, allows you to see all of your assets, as well as identify all of the
untapped potential within them. You gain the knowledge and the control you
need to more closely align your organization’s goals with the overall goals of
your business. You are able to reduce costs, minimize risk and increase
service delivery responsiveness and revenue. In short, you gain the power to
get more performance and value out of every asset throughout your enterprise.
