COAST Technology Deliverables
All COAST Mold Asset Technology packages include the following complementary services as part of our integrated, personal approach to form meaningful relationships with our customers and to ensure all their mold management and maintenance monitoring needs are being met from end to end.
Swift and Easy Software Implementation
Once a customer decides to purchase a COAST Mold Asset software subscription plan, we work closely with them, so they can begin controlling their maintenance costs and operational efficiency in as little as seven days. The exact timeframe depends largely on asset data availability and the system configuration. Our customer success managers are available to help on-site with the implementation process to make it as seamless as possible.
We build your data model.
This is the foundation of your mold asset software application and the basic blueprint for your success. Within it we create multiple levels of inter-related elements by collecting preliminary information on your main assets with the objective of providing the best software possible for your type of business.
Your data gets loaded.
During this stage, customers identify all their assets, assign tasks to them, and upload the information. Our asset loading data templates and batch update features make the data importing process fast and easy. We can also work on-site at your location to assist in the data discovery and upload process for an additional fee.
A preventive maintenance schedule is created.
This is where you set priorities to ensure your assets are performing to meet your operational goals. Proactive actions can be time-based or trigger-based and can include common maintenance activities such as cleaning and parts replacement or safety-related activities such as replacing air quality filters.
You use the asset technology software!
Once all the data is in place we can usually have the entire web-based platform configured in about a day. Your maintenance team then has full access and visibility into all your maintenance activity and you can begin using your new asset technology software. Ongoing customer and technical support from COAST is included for the life of your service agreement!
