The challenges that we solve for Food & Beverage
plant managers and owners

Lack of trained & experienced technicians

“Very few good technicians want to work in maintenance these days.

It is difficult to make sure that our technicians have the knowledge to diagnose and solve the different kinds of problems we get with our machines.”

  • CEO of a leading European meat processor

high cost of machine breakdowns

 “When our critical machines fail, sometimes, it can take days for them to be repaired. Often, we are just waiting for information.”

  •  Head of Maintenance at a Top 5 German dairy

Inefficient Spare parts inventories

“We do not master our inventory – we have too many items but at the same time, we never find the parts that we need when we need to perform a maintenance job.”

  • Head of Maintenance at a Swiss chocolatier

Painful audits

 “I am always stressed about audits. We follow all the rules of course but with our current tools, it is a lot of effort to find the paper work to prove to the auditors that we have complied.”

  • Owner of a Dutch vegan foods company

High Purchasing costs

“We are not disciplined with our purchasing – the process cost of the purchase is sometimes more expensive than the item we are purchasing! And what’s worse, we rarely get a good price for the parts because of this.”

  • Purchaser at a Top 5 German dairy
