This case study highlights how Vantage 365 successfully addressed challenges for a specialist chemical dosing solutions provider by utilising SharePoint and Power Automation. By thoughtfully implementing these technologies, Vantage 365’s client achieved streamlined processes, time savings, and ensured compliance with legal obligations, ultimately enhancing their equipment maintenance management.
Located in Basingstoke, the chemical dosing solutions provider required a more efficient system to track equipment maintenance schedules. They needed to adhere to ISO standards and undergo regular audits, which necessitated accurate record-keeping of equipment maintenance, certificates, and testing schedules.
