Faster & More Productive Equipment: New Equipment, Less Breakdowns, and Better Production Rates

Keeping track of important equipment information is critical to making sure your machines are running properly and efficiently at all times.  Warranty details as well as maintenance and repair history should be available at all times to ensure this.  Being able to service your equipment correctly and on time benefits your company by being able to maintain production rates.  Not only does this satisfy customers, but also gives you an advantage against the competition. 

Yet, it can sometimes be a challenge for employees to understand which information is important and when.  Training employees is not only time consuming, but expensive as well. The common way to store equipment information is in paper format in large (and often disorganized) filing systems.  If something goes wrong with a piece of equipment employees end up having to search through piles of papers for warranty details.  Plus, since it is time consuming to locate repair and maintenance information in a traditional paper filing system, technicians often have to guess when equipment is due for maintenance.  Not only does this create longer equipment downtimes, but it may also require emergency purchasing of parts and equipment- which can be costly.

Sigilo Fleet Management is a mobile app that allows you to store all equipment information on your mobile device.  This app is easy to use and simplifies equipment management and organization.  It can store information such as maintenance history, repair history, and warranty information all in an electronic file format.  Having this information available at your fingertips benefits all aspects of your operations- managers, crews, and equipment.  It allows your employees to be more productive, and also holds them accountable.  Employees and technicians will have access to equipment history at all times.

Sigilo uses Nearfield Communication (NFC) technology to send data between a microchip on your equipment and the smartphone.  It does this completely wirelessly.  After placing a small chip onto equipment, the user simply waves the smartphone over the chip; from there the data is captured in the smartphone, and you are able to edit and save additional information directly in the app.

Having fleet information on a smartphone device has many benefits.  It requires minimal training due to the fact that many employees already know how to use smartphones and tablets.  Sigilo completely eliminates the need for paper equipment records, meaning employees will not have to waste time searching through files for equipment information.  When maintenance, repair, and warranty information is streamlined, then there will be less equipment downtime resulting in better production rates.

Sigilo Fleet Management will significantly change how your company operates- for the better.  Managers will be able to spend less time training employees, and employees will be able to spend more time working.  Diagnosing problems with equipment will no longer be left up to guesswork, and employees will not have to waste productivity by searching for equipment paperwork. Technicians will be able to fix equipment malfunctions quickly and correctly, getting your equipment back up and running sooner.  All of these actions will increase your profits; not only will there will be additional money available for you to be able to invest in new equipment, but it will keep your current equipment functioning at it’s maximum potential.





Outsourcing Equipment Maintenance- Reducing billable hours lost to equipment maintenance

Having a process in place for equipment maintenance is important for ensuring that your operations are running at maximum output at all times. Periodic equipment checks will make sure that you will not run into unexpected problems.  An important part of equipment maintenance is being able to outsource; having your employees do repairs on equipment decreases their productivity and increases billable hours that are lost to equipment maintenance.

Yet, when it comes to equipment maintenance and repairs companies can experience a multitude of issues.  Maintenance history, repair history, and warranty details are all documents that are usually stored in a paper file format.  These can become quickly disorganized, and when employees have to stop and search through pile of papers, it becomes a huge loss of productivity.  Often times, they are not checked at all because it is too much of a hassle to search for.   At this point, if a machine breaks down your crews are left having to do repairs that you otherwise could have been able to outsource.  This leads to valuable hours wasted on equipment maintenance that should have been spent focusing on their jobs.

Sigilo Fleet Management is a mobile app that stores all important equipment information to your smartphone.  Having equipment documents such as maintenance history, repair history, and warranty details at your fingertips means that you will know exactly when equipment is due for maintenance.  The app uses NFC (Nearfield Communication) technology to communicate with a chip on your equipment and your smartphone.  There is no room for human error, thus taking the guesswork out of equipment maintenance. 

If a piece of equipment is due for maintenance you will know ahead of time, rather than when it’s too late.  This will make it easier to outsource your equipment maintenance rather than needing your employees to do it. There is no longer a reason to sift through paper folders searching for specific equipment information, making your shop unorganized.  Sigilo will streamline equipment processes and make looking for equipment information much easier.

When you know ahead of time a piece of equipment is due for repair, you are able to set up an appointment if necessary.  This will ensure that you are not stuck without anyone available to do repairs if equipment breaks down unexpectedly. Also, you will save money by not having to schedule an emergency appointment to get your equipment fixed last minute.  You will be able to see where equipment has been repaired in the past, and arrange to have it repaired there again.   In general, downtime will be cut (if any), and output in your operations can be at its maximum.
