ProTeus CMMS Software Chosen by The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, printer of Wisconsin’s best known newspaper is a veteran customer of Eagle Technology, Inc. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel chose to run ProTeus Enterprise Computerized Maintenance Management Software (CMMS). ProTeus has assisted the facility in achieving its goal of Total Productive Maintenance.
The 448,750 square foot facility is located on 42 acres. A maintenance staff of 22 employees manage 2,482 pieces of equipment. There are 247 employees who use ProTeus on a 24-hour basis. ProTeus has made it possible for the facility to go from 87% demand maintenance and 0% preventive maintenance to 84% preventive maintenance, and is now 98% efficient. The facility is considered to have the best equipment performance in the printing industry.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel uses their ProTeus application to create work orders (preventive and demand) and manage parts, equipment and inventory. Dennis Laskaskie, the Maintenance Supervisor has been extremely pleased with the implementation of ProTeus at his facility. The Journal Sentinel has completed their ISO Certification, and Dennis explained, “By using ProTeus the maintenance department flew through the paperwork and had all the records that were needed at the click of a button.”
Dennis attributes much of their success with Eagle to customer support, ease of use and the tailored training that was provided. The facility has added optional modules such as Crystal Reports, which gave them the ability to customize reports. They are also planning on adding the Barcode module at the end of 2005, which will give them the ability to automatically update their inventory. Dennis is able to keep up with the ever-changing needs of the facility and finds the software “very flexible.”
