Devro | The Solution

Single-hosted CMMS solution

MCGlobal Solutions demonstrated it could deliver to Devro a single-hosted Maintenance Connection CMMS solution in six regional repair centres, with local language translation for each region. 

Visibility for management

Devro management now has better visibility across the global operation and can monitor production performance better. 

Common configuration & processes

Having a common system, with a common configuration, allows all employees to be trained in a standardised manner with common processes rolled out globally. 

Staff support & training

MCGlobal Solutions carried out initial administrative training for the project manager and the six global managers at the Devro head office, in Scotland. Each site was then implemented by the regional manager in their local language with the support of the MCGlobal Solution implementation and support team. 

Devro | The Result

  • Transparency into asset health across global plants. 
  • Improved asset hierarchy to understand maintenance needs. 
  • Preventive maintenance schedules that diminish downtime. 

“In MCGlobal Solutions. we have found the perfect partner for our Global Maintenance Connection roll-out. The regional technical and implementation support has been first-class and the relationships formed with our Super User team are a critical foundation for sustainability and continued development towards a Best Practice Asset Management model. We are noticing the value we expected from the investment.”
