)-- Infor today announced that Carillion Canada has selected Infor EAM Datastream 7i to manage and track capital assets and maintenance operations. Carillion, a Canadian road services company that is part of the U.K.-based Carillion PLC, will use Infor’s web-based enterprise asset management solution to manage its entire fleet of vehicles.
In the highly competitive Canadian marketplace, Carillion sought an asset management solution to give the company an edge. Infor EAM Datastream 7i will allow Carillion to manage its extensive fleet of vehicles on a single web-based system. Through any internet connected computer, Carillion staff can monitor tire and fuel records, road repair cycles, and the status of critical assets and infrastructure. The system also tracks repair and upkeep costs and manages asset warranties.
“We chose Infor to gain greater control of our capital assets and manage them effectively to positively impact the bottom line,” said Carillion senior vice president Paul Quinless. “Infor EAM Datastream 7i enables us to prevent unnecessary costs, such as downtime because of a missed maintenance cycle, but also can help recover costs proactively through tracking of warranties.”
Carillion will use Infor EAM Datastream 7i within the company’s four business areas – road and highway maintenance, construction services, facilities management and public private partnership projects – in the four Canadian markets in which it operates. The solution is expected to generate annual savings and enable the company to continue its growth in Canada.
“Infor EAM solutions provide built-in business-specific functionality, which directly results in faster implementation times and lower total cost of ownership,” said Marty Osborn, senior director EAM industry marketing, Infor. “Organizations concerned with maintaining their large fleets at optimum levels share common pain points when it comes to managing critical assets, and Infor delivers the most comprehensive solution to meet their unique requirements.”
Infor EAM solutions allow customers to maintain, manage, and improve the performance of their capital asset infrastructure, such as manufacturing equipment, fleet, and facilities, by combining asset management functionality and advanced reporting with advanced analytics to deliver a powerful platform for optimizing enterprise asset performance. Infor’s EAM solutions go beyond traditional management of assets providing information that helps identify key trends and anomalies, forecast performance issues, and helps to make forward-looking decisions to take action.
