In this digital, data-heavy world, how do we establish a better platform to manage dispersed assets and workforces?
Tracking assets is complex, with many dimensions to consider including:
- each asset’s true location – is it where you expect it to be?
- each asset’s state of repair – how quickly is it deteriorating?
- how this family of assets is behaving – what events are having a negative impact on asset performance?
- maintenance costs – is upkeep costing more than it should?
- stakeholders – who needs access to information on asset status and performance?
- location and efficacy of work crews – who is undertaking work? Where are they? Are they working effectively? What are they doing next?
Keeping track of your assets means keeping track of all work conducted, conditions, costs, issues, locations and a range of other inputs. With a large set of dispersed assets, all this data can be difficult to support. How do you best manage and maintain this asset data?
It’s clear from the way that we talk about data that it is an integral part of our information-driven world. A quick Google search will provide a number of adages: “data is the new oil”, “torture the data, it will confess to anything”, “data is king”.
But if data is king, then it is nothing without its queen: the software used to interpret the data. With the large amount of data that a dispersed set of isolated assets generates, it’s necessary to filter out the excess noise so that only the relevant information is presented. Only then can the business insights from the data easily become an input into decisions, ranging from workforce planning to preventative maintenance schedules. Filtering the relevant data is something that requires talent and the best “queen” – software – for the job.
At DB Results, our queen of choice is KloudGin, a proven geospatial work and asset management application with a big-data engine that effectively consumes all the data that the workforce gathers. KloudGin’s easy-to-configure UI can be deployed on almost any Android or iOS device, and enables field crews to gather structured and unstructured data about your assets and display it in a way that it can be interpreted by the team. KloudGin has helped many companies to utilise data across their assets, helping them to predict when to make repairs, when their work crews will be available for new jobs, keep track of assets that are deteriorating faster than expected, and many other common problems. This allows them to benefit from improved asset performance, reduced costs and greater visibility across their dispersed assets.
The third component of successful asset management is talent. Working together with you and your staff, DB Results has the talent to deliver the implementation of KloudGin. Our people have the industry experience to help your company realise the benefits of KloudGin sooner. With a strong history of delivering successful projects, we want to offer you more accurate data with improved visibility for more cost-effective asset and works management decision making.
