NFPL (Harmac) Canada Steps Up Maintenance  Productivity
British Columbian Lumber Company NFPL (Harmac) goes live with Hofinsoft AX-EAM solution
 
Hofinsoft AX-EAM went live at Nanaimo Forest Products Ltd (NFPL), British Columbia, Canada.  NFPL was running a legacy maintenance system which was not integrated to their ERP (Lawson) and generally felt to be incompatible from both operating system and hardware perspectives. NFPL needed a solution that would not only replace their existing system, but also boost the efficiency of their maintenance division. 
 
RMB International specializes in implementing maintenance solutions with 15 years+ track record convinced NFPL, that it could enhance its present maintenance operational capabilities by implementing Hofinsoft AX-EAM.
 
The Hofinsoft AX-EAM solution was chosen as it seamlessly integrates with Dynamics AX, thereby delivering quick and easy visibility into Inventory, Purchase, and Finance information. The integration also reduces data duplication and replaces complex management of interfaces.
 
In addition, Hofinsoft AX-EAM provides effective maintenance and equipment management software tools.  Some examples of these tools are: A sophisticated work order/ work bench console facilitates a maintenance manager, coordinator or planner to accomplish most of their work, minimizing the time taken to effect data entries by different maintenance resources into the system.  The modular design of the database provides templates and user defined tables of information that accelerate the execution of routine tasks like work order creation, updation and purchase requisition for machine parts.
 
Benefits enjoyed by NFPL(Harmac):

  • Quickly fetch historical data
  • Reduced Search and retrieve time for service parts
  • Enhanced visibility on spares inventory
  • Better procurement information status
  • Efficient allocation of maintenance schedules and execution

 
In short, the Hofinsoft AX-EAM solution brings down screen time and enhances maintenance productivity, for any maintenance organization. 
 
 
In the words of Bob Waldhaus, IT Head, NFPL, Canada affirms “NFPL has improved their ease of access to historical records, reduced the amount of screen time and improved the ability to see what parts are available, get parts quickly, see what is on order and when it will arrive, and manage work with less effort than before.
