Interview withKarsten Winklerfrom Henning Facility Services
How did you work in asset management before, and what challenges did you face?
We used Excel lists, and a lot of things were handled ad hoc. There were no actual structures. Tests and defects were usually only processed on-demand and reactively. In addition, it was often not clear whether a technician from the supplier had to come or whether it could be solved internally. The defect description mainly was verbal and not detailed enough.
Why did you want to solve these challenges?
We want to get more structure and system, especially in the area of inspections and proactive reviews. It has been necessary to get an up-to-date overview of the existing machines and devices.
What do you like about ToolSense? Which features or functions interested you the most?
We are convinced of the intuitive handling for the users. Also perfect for our challenges is that any employee can report a defect. The manageability of the whole system is clear and understandable for every user.

Process reliability in asset management
What tips can you give other companies when implementing asset management?
It must be as easy as possible for employees to use to see an advantage in it and “support” digitization.
