May 19, 2015 – AssetOptics, a leader in cloud-based CMMS/EAM solutions, today announced that California fresh produce provider Foxy Produce has chosen AssetOptics Facilities, Equipment and Fleet Maintenance for Salesforce to help it address maintenance scheduling, management and compliance for the equipment in its distribution centers. Using AssetOptics, Foxy Produce has deployed a mobilized workflow solution that integrates maintenance functions across all of its distribution centers. The deployment has helped the company to meet or exceed its compliance goals in the tightly regulated produce industry.
“Our mechanical integrity program undergoes review by inspectors from the federal and state Occupational Safety and Health Administrations, the federal Department of Transportation, and the federal and state Environmental Protection Agencies,” said Foxy Produce Director of Engineering and Maintenance Scott Goad. “Prior to implementing the solution, we had no official way of documenting our maintenance activities. In addition, the Preventive Maintenance functionality helps us remember when it is time to perform maintenance that occurs at varied intervals.”
Like many companies whose products or services are not technology-centric, Foxy Produce had previously relied on a paper-based system that made regulatory compliance both cumbersome and inexact. With AssetOptics, reports the firm’s Information Systems and Technology Director Peter Townsend, Foxy Produce has implemented a “right-sized” solution that met the company’s workflow requirements without being overly complex to deploy.
“We have a lot of equipment at each location that is mission critical to our operation,” Townsend said. “AssetOptics made it possible for us to develop a workflow system that met our compliance goals, enriched our maintenance management and reporting, and streamlined work for our field technicians through the use of mobile devices.”
With its robust, built-in reporting options, work order automation and tracking, and labor and parts scheduling and reminders, AssetOptics is built from the ground up to help companies achieve regulatory compliance. As a native Force.com application, it provides the reliability, flexibility and scalability of one of the world’s most secure cloud platforms.
“Government regulations and related compliance requirements grow more rigorous every year, and the penalties for failure to achieve them can be devastating,” said AssetOptics Founder Mike Edwards. “Data analysis and reporting for compliance and auditing is a core component of AssetOptics. Helping companies like Foxy Produce meet their obligations is one of our platform’s greatest strengths.”
