Automatic ordering of documentation
We’re flooded with documents every day and all these documents are used to make important strategic choices about maintenance, investments, law and regulation, operations, safety, and so much more. But is all documentation accurate, complete and unambiguous? Ultimo forms the center of Asset Management and provides the necessary information about all assets so you can see the vital signs and take vital action. One single point of truth in all documents is crucial, and therefore we have integrated Viewport in our software to help you make the right choices and save lots of search time and annoyance.
“I don’t need to think about where to start looking. I know Viewport-Ultimo will find what I need, even if I’m not sure where to start!”Rene Baron - Asset Management E&I - BASF
How technology helps us solve personnel shortages
Today we are facing a major challenge in the Asset Management market. How do we find good and qualified personnel and also make the work of maintenance more appealing? Can we convince the new generation to go to work in this beautiful market? Asset Management sometimes has a bit of a dusty image, but what one often does not know is that it is one of the most innovative markets. How else are we able to create and maintain new complex construction projects, at competitive prices, low risks and with a high degree of sustainability?
Precisely these are the ingredients that make Asset Management so challenging and interesting. All these challenges force us to be creative and highly innovative. However, this often remains too much underexposed for new generations. Within Asset Management more and more cool techniques are used, such as AI, AG, Digital Twins and Data Science, to better understand how Assets perform and how employees should act. The most important tool of a mechanic is no longer his hammer, but has become data and the technologies around it that help understand the data. We have listed four ways of how augmented reality helps to increase productivity, make work more attractive and reduce environmental impact:
- People are visual by nature; images say more than words
- Have a specialist monitor your work and give directions using Augmented Reality, a modern and easy way of sharing knowledge
- One specialist can support and train many mechanics
- Generation Y is so familiar with new technology, use this advantage

Stop searching, take action!
The population is ageing and getting older. This also increases the demand for care. Unfortunately, the number of people in care is not growing at the same pace. This leads to extra pressure among staff and forces us to work more effectively. 5 reasons why IoT makes a positive contribution to this:
- Eliminate unnecessary searching (up to 24 minutes a day a person)
- Reduce stolen and lost Assets (up to 30% less lost and 13% less stolen)
- ROI within 18 months;
- No more inventory rounds;
- Eliminate annoyance.
“By applying Track and Trace we save a lot of unnecessary costs. In the past, we often had to hire medical supplies because we could not find our own. Today, we can trace the location of everything perfectly at any given time, so we no longer need to hire them”.
