Reducing costs and enabling better asset utilisation and extending the lifespan of critical equipment
Our solution delivers Return On Investment (ROI) benefits for effective asset management that not only generates immediate bottom line advantage but by also facilitating better processes and governance that provide payback throughout the full life-cycle of assets.
Consider the following as simple examples of how Hardcat asset management reduces costs, improves staff productivity, enables better asset utilisation and extends the lifespan of critical equipment thereby creating a considerable return on investment.
Insurance, depreciation and other financials
Real-time asset knowledge means you have an accurate, documented asset register which can ensure you are only paying insurance premiums on assets that you have and can present evidence of where your true risk profile sits. Our customers report premium savings of up to 30 per cent by having orderly asset data. Hardcat can also track all financial reporting on assets to ensure that you are getting full value from depreciation allowances.
Tracking all repair and maintenance while proactively generating work orders to keep assets in prime condition improves utilisation and extends the lifespan of critical equipment. This, in turn, reduces the risks of asset failure having an impact on business continuity and accelerates recovery in disaster management. Hardcat allows users to forecast preventive maintenance, meet compliance obligations and track incremental maintenance costs for true and accurate reporting.
Integration of business tools and processes
Integrating Hardcat’s stock, maintenance and service desk/help desk modules allows organisations to keep the right level of spare parts for likely maintenance requirements and reduce the productivity losses of equipment failure. We also recognise that an integrated solution is often comprised of lots of different systems and we are dedicated to ensuring that your user experience is seamless, regardless of the systems involved.
Prevention of expensive unpredicted maintenance
Further savings are also realised in the reduction in reactive maintenance through better proactive asset management. Reactive maintenance associated with equipment breakdown is conservatively estimated to be four times the total cost of preventive maintenance.
