After researching solutions and discussing them with colleagues, Carlos implemented Limble. Top on his list of solutions to put in place was asset tracking with PMs, scannable QR codes, and spare parts inventory.
Limble’s Customer Success Manager worked with Carlos and his team every step of the way. They added all their assets along with preventive maintenance (PM) tasks and other information based on manuals they had previously had to reference by hand. And with Limble’s best-in-class customer support, he knew his team would have a partner in their work. “Knowing that takes a lot of stress off of me so I can keep things running.”
Within just a few weeks, Carlos and his team began seeing results. By setting up all their assets and their maintenance needs into PM schedules in Limble, PMs began happening regularly. The work was automatically logged, making each task a little quicker and easier than the last. And when breakdowns did happen, they were able to quickly scan a QR code to instantly access maintenance histories and correct parts.
Even better, the stress started to fall away as well. When Carlos and his team leave work for the day, they know Limble is still working for them. They walk into work each day knowing which assets are running, which aren’t, and what tasks they have to complete. Even the machine operators are experiencing the benefits. “They don’t want to stand around, they want to stay busy… Now, people can come in to work knowing their machines are going to run a lot better. They are going to be able to get in a full day’s work.”
Now, operating at a 15% downtime rate — down from 90% — they have experienced significant financial benefits as well. In one month, they saved $10,000 in downtime, adding up to over $100,000 in the first year after implementation. Carlos and his team wake up excited to come to work in the morning, knowing that the work they are doing is making a difference at Tara. And whatever new challenges come their way, they know Limble will be part of the solution.
