You spoke; we listened. You told us that creating an asset management plan is hard. That you typically spend an average of 15% to 25% of your working time researching and looking for data. But sharing that data is challenging, and getting participation and buy-in from other people in your organisation is difficult, with accurate communication being problematic.
Stories is an additional module for SPM Assets asset management software. It’s a collaboration space where you can share your asset management related information, such as plans, scenarios, policies, and reports. It’s pre-populated with everything you need to get started quickly. And it’s so much easier than using emails or meetings to get data and support from people around your organisation.
What’s more, it’s easy and intuitive to combine words with data, reports, images, commentary and insights. As you collaborate, comments and changes are displayed within the shared document. Plus you’ll receive notifications when something’s being updated or commented on. You’ll even know who to chase up.
Stories has a dedicated collaboration space where up to 50 users can either view or contribute to your asset plans or any other story you share. You will be able to assign and track users’ actions, keeping up to date and ensuring you can work in an agile manner with your stakeholders.
This space will help you generate common, consistent understanding across your entire organisation. You could even use it to store your policies and procedures so everybody has access to the most up to date versions.
Produce an asset management plan without having bottom-up component level data. Using our templates you can build a compelling asset management plan at any level of maturity and will have the option to be better aligned with ISO 55000.
There is now a more modern, agile approach to create your plans. The lengthy all-inclusive plans can be relegated to the past. Working with all stakeholders you’ll be better positioned to deliver a targeted plan that’s more likely to succeed.
Even if you are using a collaborative approach today, the Stories’ Timeline will make it easier to manage the actions the team needs to finalise and sign-off your plans.
Build your story using data tables and graphs from SPM Assets seamlessly.
