BrainCreators wins the IBM Best New Ecosystem Partner Award
International consulting firm McKinsey has noted that industries with distributed fixed assets share specific challenges when it comes to maintenance. As these assets are distributed throughout a region, there is usually no dedicated maintenance team for each asset. Maintenance workers have to cover large areas, travel to the assets’ various locations, and bring the appropriate instructions, spare parts, and tools.
The challenge is particularly acute in capital intensive, highly regulated industries with long lifecycle assets due to their reliance on legacy infrastructure. Many infrastructure owners struggle to maintain cost-optimal maintenance frequency.
The building, maintaining, and managing of infrastructure depends heavily on labor-intensive, repetitive tasks from checking deliverables with plans to detecting malfunctions and other issues. Customers can make multiple call-outs without fixing the issue.
In the worst cases, misalignment between planned work and reality can cost millions in damages when construction breaks down or destroys pipes or cables. Moreover, on roads and waterways, public safety can be at risk if defects are not identified and acted upon immediately.
BrainMatter intelligently automates the recognition of assets, the interpretation of their current state and initiates actions to resolve issues.
BrainMatter streamlines the process of automating tasks that require a level of knowledge, experience and skill.
It eliminates manual processing with the attendant risk of human error, ensuring inspections are undertaken at an optimal frequency and in compliance with regulatory requirements.
