Tampereen Sähkölaitos wants to develop its operations continuously, and it noticed that its existing maintenance, planning, and documentation management systems used for asset management needed to be updated. So, the company held a tender, comparing the systems of several different suppliers in autumn 2019. Vitec ALMA’s information system was selected as the winning bid.
- Alongside our information system reform, we wanted to update our maintenance information system so that it would bring added value to our asset management, says Paavo Knaapi, President of Tampereen Sähkölaitos Oy’s Energy Department.
According to Knaapi, Vitec ALMA’s system was overall the best option for the company. Its usability, mobile features and documentation management were at a high level: a top priority for Tampereen Sähkölaitos.
Flexible mobile features
The tender started in autumn 2019, and the updating project was launched in April 2020. A lot of data from the existing systems will be transferred and connected to the new system.
- We expect the Vitec ALMA system to bring a lot of added value to our maintenance processes. The system has great usability, and its mobile features support the wide extent of our operations and provide more flexibility. For example, with the new information system, we can export the current paper permits directly into the system, Knaapi continues.
According to Vitec ALMA’s CEO Juha Nissilä, Tampereen Sähkölaitos choosing ALMA’s system was a great sign of trust. According to him, it is also the result of ALMA’s long-term product development, which enables to provide comprehensive solutions to clients.
- We are fortunate to be able to collaborate with one of the best operators in the Finnish energy sector, who invest in their development without prejudice, even during these exceptional circumstances. We are looking forward to taking Tampereen Sähkölaitos’ asset management processes to a new level, Nissilä states.
