The no-code way to digitalize maintenance operations
Maintenance technicians face innumerable challenges every day- missing parts, cost overruns,...
The ongoing Covid pandemic has had an irreversible impact on businesses. A large majority of the companies have seen their sales shrink considerably in size which has had a massive impact on the various other aspects of the business including operations. Several companies have had to completely shut shop while others who managed to stay afloat were working with a skeletal workforce. As per McKinsey, by 2025, COVID-19 will have cost the world anywhere between a massive $16 trillion and $35 trillion and while the small and medium businesses would struggle the most, larger corporations are not insulated from its impact.
What is also bound to change is how companies go about their daily operations – regardless if you are on a skeletal workforce on-site. While operations vary widely by industry, business leaders have one key thing in mind: to keep employees and customers safe and to ensure automation and digitalization takes over parts of businesses to improve efficiencies and reduce costs.
The challenges are manifold for the CIO grappling with the nuances of the 'new normal'. Evolving consumer expectations, shrinking margins, and black-swan events like complete lockdown dictate the need of the hour- digital transformation. The question the CIO hopes to answer is: How can digital transformation, ensure business continuity and help minimize the potential impact of a pandemic outbreak among other potential disruptions?
To answer this, let's understand what's changed in this New Normal.
If you fall in one of these industries – Diesel engines, facilities maintenance, heavy machinery and vehicles, HVAC equipment, industrial engineering, or marine vessels, you might consider deploying a No-Code MRO to help you with tackling the new normal. A structured approach that your CIO could deploy could potentially involve:
Despite having detailed business recovery plans in case of disasters, natural calamities or pandemic outbreaks such as the recent COVID-19 spread have brought companies to their knees. Almost all industries have taken a hit and regulatory policies have ensured that employees do not turn up for work in factories and offices. To reinforce business continuity, organizations must augment their manual system management processes and their existing disaster recovery methods with protection that's more comprehensive, which is where intelligent automation would be useful.
Using the Steer No-Code MRO suite can help automatically perform service management workflows in times of uncertainty. Pre-built templates complemented with intelligent process automation workflows can be configured to make decisions independently based on business policies and impact.

Some of the immediate benefits which the Steer No-Code MRO suite would provide to your organization include:
