The Challenge

As part of a long-term business improvement strategy, Foyle Port Undertook a management review to identify areas within the organisation where performance and efficiency could be improved. They recognized that:

OWNERSHIP

There was no single, easily accessible list of assets owned and operated by the Port

TIME CONSUMING PROCESSES 

The manual recording and scheduling of maintenance was quickly becoming outdated

LACK OF PRIORITY

There was a lack of focus to complete tasks in the allocated time based on priorities

VISIBILITY

Senior managers had no way of simply checking the status of tasks taking place

ACCESSIBILITY

Important documents were not easily accessible by managers and engineers

OWNERSHIP

No system was in place to automatically notify when asset related activities such as inspections or PPM’s were due

The Solution

IEB Software worked closely with Foyle Port to create a system that was tailored to their specific requirements. The system implemented enabled the port to enable:

JOINED UP WORKING

Connect the workforce centrally with automated communication and electronic notifications 

CENTRALISED SYSTEM

Add, store, manage and view details of all assets from one central system

MAINTENANCE SCHEDULES

Set up maintenance schedules with a list of tasks to be carried out

A BIRDS EYE VIEW

Monitor and review all maintenance carried out on every asset & quickly view certificates that need renewed

REMOTE ACCESS

Access the database from anywhere in the world through integration with the ports own off-site remote access portal

MOBILE APP

Operators have access to the information they need from the AssetHQ App on their mobile devices, reducing the need for paper records & phone calls

Why AssetHQ?

IEB offered a leading solution to the design and development of software which could be integrated with our own server systems. The adoption of the Asset Maintenance product has led to a transformation in the procedures of Londonderry Port & Harbour Authority (LPHA).

Centralisation of the asset management operations means that all assets from each department can be found in one location. Training of employees on separate asset maintenance software is now no longer necessary thus reducing company expenditure.

Maintenance efficiency has improved in terms of time management, one example being that it has led to the basic maintenance scheduling being taken from the workload of the engineers
