Edmonton, Alberta - August 10, 2010
Matrikon Inc., now part of Honeywell (NYSE: HON), today announced it will provide ENMAX Corp. – a provider of electricity, natural gas and value-added services – with an integrated work and inventory management solution that will help it improve short- and long-term maintenance planning.
The solution is being implemented in ENMAX’s Generation division. Matrikon will configure and implement its IBM Maximo solution to help ENMAX reduce equipment breakdowns, cut maintenance costs and improve efficiency. The Maximo asset management software helps streamline business processes for increased asset reliability and improved staff productivity. In addition to maintenance planning, the system should improve the utilization of resources at generation facilities and help ensure inventory parts are available when required.
“Implementing a fully integrated work and inventory management system is an important milestone for the growing Generation division at ENMAX,” said Dave Rehn, executive vice president, Generation and Wholesale Energy, ENMAX Corp. “Maximo is a technology that supports our goal of generating success by enabling safe work practices while focusing on operational excellence. Matrikon has the depth of knowledge and technical expertise we were seeking for this implementation.”
“Our extensive experience in the power industry, coupled with our track record of successful Maximo implementations, gave ENMAX confidence that we were the right technology provider to help it achieve a work and inventory management system guided by best practices,” said Mike Brown, vice president of North American Solutions at Matrikon.
A key feature of the solution is its flexibility in meeting the power company’s future requirements. Corporate systems, such as PeopleSoft financials and Kronos payroll, will be integrated so that the data seamlessly flows back and forth for increased visibility of information in one integrated environment. Once the environment is integrated at the corporate level, ENMAX can consider expanding the use of Maximo to support work and inventory management needs of other ENMAX businesses.
With 30 certified IBM Maximo consultants, Matrikon is a leading integrator and support partner of IBM Maximo solutions.
