An interactive maintenance software package that allows users to deliver a bespoke maintenance strategy, using the latest predictive technology and tools to reduce the consequence of failure and cost of ownership, has won in this year's Innovation in Technology & Systems category at the BIFM Awards.
Developed in support of property maintenance business Integral's reliability-based maintenance program, the software provides what its producers call "an approach to maintenance that combines reactive, preventive and predictive practices and strategies to maximise the life-time and availability of business critical assets".
Called Integral Uptimeplus, the product uses the Galileo platform to perform a range of analytical techniques by applying the platform's asset-specific predictive life cycle algorithms - algorithms unique to the Galileo technology.
As a result, clients can forecast when maintenance is planned and performed, meaning that decisions on maintenance intervals are based solely on asset need and criticality.
According to a company statement, adoption of Uptimeplus can ensure that a client's structured maintenance programme will, through dynamic scheduling technology, "deliver highly resilient performance while supporting an unparalleled cost of ownership." The software service can be delivered to a client's desktop or as a mobile solution, through bespoke reporting graphics.
