Valuekeep selected as the official CMMS software provider for Ulster Rugby
Northern Ireland rugby team replaced previous CMMS with Valuekeep’s cloud-based solution, with the special focus on the work reporting mobile application.
September 2017 – The cloud-based asset and maintenance management technology developed by Valuekeep has been selected by one of the most prestigious rugby team in the island of Ireland to manage maintenance processes across their 18,000-seat stadium. The Valuekeep solution will replace a previous CMMS software, bringing important improvements on the asset and maintenance management of the entire stadium, which contains more than 300 different internal areas and thousands of assets.
With the implementation of Valuekeep, Ulster Rugby has access to a maintenance management platform, 100% web and mobile. With this powerful platform, all the maintenance management will be performed using a single and centralized system, allowing the maintenance manager to easily access details of every equipment across multiple locations.
With the CMMS platform and its mobile interface, new maintenance requests can now be done on the go, making this an easier process that helps reduce response times to any breakdowns. The mobile access to Work Orders allows the technicians on the field to check their work every day, verify which tasks to perform, report on costs and consumption of each work, even in locals without a network.
Ulster Rugby’s Maintenance Manager commented on the new CMMS:
“With such a large and busy Stadium like the Kingspan Stadium, where we have sports events week in, week out, having a centralized CMMS software was a really important part of our strategy to manage preventive maintenance and monitoring of assets in order to prevent breakdowns and manage breakdowns for quick close-out.”
“With Valuekeep and its integrated CMMS mobile app, we can now instantly report new issues and easily allocate new work to our ground staff, and they can report back costs and time spent completing each operation. That way, we ensure that we tackle the problem promptly, improving the return assets increasing their availability.”
