As part of Rockfon’s efforts to modernize its manufacturing facility, it looked for an EAM system to gain better visibility over its maintenance operation, improve traceability, and enhance communication. After comparing several providers, the company chose IFS Ultimo. The solution was already successfully used by its sister factory in Belgium, and its high level of customizability made it a good fit for Rockfon’s unique operating environment.

Results already achieved:

  • Better communication between teams
  • All critical data instantly available in digital form
  • Risk of human error in maintenance tasks minimized
  • Improved safety across the facility
“IFS Ultimo has helped break down silos in our organization. Before, the attitude was that we were all separate teams; that’s their team, and this is ours. Now, we are one team working across shifts, and the improved communication and knowledge-sharing help us all work better together.”
