User-friendly interface

The BEWI RAW manufacturing site at the Kilpilahti industrial estate in Porvoo, Finland, operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. With uptime of paramount importance, BEWI RAW needed to have optimal visibility over the maintenance status of its assets. When its old maintenance CMMS software was discontinued, the company decided to upgrade to a modern, cloud-based EAM solution that could support its digital transformation journey. In 2020, after evaluating several providers, it agreed on Ultimo, thanks to its user-friendly interface and the host of features offered.

Results obtained by BEWI RAW:

  • A clear plan of critical maintenance tasks
  • All documentation relating to assets is available in one place
  • A user-friendly solution that doesn’t require high levels of computer literacy
  • A simple overview of daily maintenance tasks
“With Ultimo, we can make essential information easily available to everyone so they can be even more proactive. The great thing about Ultimo is that you can get started with little knowledge of the system. With some software, you must know everything before getting started, but in Ultimo, anything you do helps move the process forward.“
