Casepak is a leading waste management and recycling company, specialising in the delivery of collection, sorting and resource recovery systems to help the UK meet its recycling targets. In a world that’s becoming increasingly green, robust waste management requires the support of similarly robust asset management systems if the promise of environmental sustainability is to be delivered and maintained. Ben Grundy, Maintenance Manager at Casepak tells that leading-edge technology has significantly helped to drive operational efficiencies and, quite appropriately, cut out waste.
“The scale of the operation dictates the need for a reliable fleet of industrial vehicles and mobile equipment, all of which requires regular maintenance to ensure maximum productivity and optimal performance. The management of such a complex maintenance programme – in a fast-moving environment where assets are mobile – is a great challenge. We therefore needed a robust system to manage our assets and process maintenance requirements efficiently and effectively.
The introduction of RAM’s maintenance management software has transformed our operations. It has driven real cost-efficiencies, helping us to plan and budget much more effectively. We now have a greater understanding of how much each vehicle is costing us and we can measure how every asset is performing against its KPIs. Moreover, we can also proactively identify troublesome areas and respond to them appropriately – making our operations much more agile and productive.
The benefits of the system have been underlined by a recent mandatory ISO audit which we passed with no non-conformances and RAM’s solution is a key part of that performance. We use every single aspect of it, from employee training records and licensing issues all the way through to basic consumables, inspections and costing information. Everything is stored on the system and because the solution is accessible remotely, you can access everything no matter where you are. It’s brilliant!
The move from a traditional paper-based system to RAM’s intuitive maintenance management solution has certainly revolutionised our operations. We could never go back to the old approach; it would be like walking back in time!
Things are so much easier now and, what’s more, RAM’s implementation processes and its customer service and help-desk facilities make it a fantastic company to work with.???
