Mile-long Challenges

Managing assets such as railway tracks or power lines within major cities across numerous countries, linear assets will inevitably pose issues to any manager. Not only is linear asset management significantly more complex than any other type of asset management, but linear assets also span large geographical areas and require advanced levels of maintenance. Managers experience issues with:

  • Resource allocation;
  • Technological integrations;
  • Asset visibility;
  • Data management;

And the list goes on…

No More Outdated Systems

Many traditional Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) systems do not include the necessary functions to effectively manage linear assets. The systems are oftentimes difficult to implement and integrate, have outdated user interfaces, and aren’t scalable. Simply put – traditional systems aren’t cut out to do the job anymore.

Therefore, companies all around the globe are in need of a modern and more advanced EAM system. That’s where The Asset Guardian (TAG) comes into play. TAG is an Enterprise Asset Management system that helps companies manage, maintain, and optimize their assets throughout their lifecycle in a secure, scalable, and intuitive way within their favorite Microsoft ERP – Microsoft Dynamics Business Central.

A Modern Twist

While managing linear assets introduces significant paint points, a traditional EAM system doesn’t offer the advanced features that modern systems can offer. The benefits of a modern solution will help organizations achieve their goals with regards to linear asset management and offer a significant ROI in the process. If the following features interest you, then TAG will offer what you need:

  • Dynamic maintenance scheduling. Due to the geographical distance that these assets span, you will be able to break the asset down into identifiable sections to make inspections and maintenance easier and optimize schedules.
  • Global data access. Linear assets are not fixed in one specific location, so your data collection needs to be available whenever and wherever it is needed.
  • Embedded Geographic Information System (GIS). Since the GIS plays a crucial role in maintaining linear assets, the combination of GI data and linear asset management software on both the backend and the mobile make maintenance run smoothly.
  • Implementing optimal management strategies. An effective linear asset maintenance plan should include a proactive, health-based approach to asset maintenance. Condition monitoring and predictive or reliability-centered maintenance are crucial.
  • Clear financial picture. You need to be able to record maintenance costs accurately, support the asset management districts or regions for each section of the linear asset, and manage construction projects efficiently.

TAG makes life easier for all managers and technicians by offering necessary and advanced linear asset management features to any business. Request a demo now or contact for more information.
