Lippert Components Selects TabWare CMMS / EAM Solution to Increase Equipment Uptime through a PM Program

Greenville, SC – September 14, 2015 – AssetPoint, a leading provider of Computerized Maintenance Management Software / Enterprise Asset Management (CMMS / EAM) solutions, announced Lippert Components, Inc. has selected TabWare CMMS / EAM to manage and maintain their manufacturing assets and increase equipment uptime.

Lippert Components, Inc. (LCI), a leading supplier to the recreational vehicle, manufactured housing, trailer and bus industries, has recently experienced rapid growth, triggering the decision to implement a new CMMS / EAM solution. To support Lean, Leadership and Safety initiatives, LCI’s solution requirements included a seamless integration to their Microsoft Dynamics AX and NAV ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems, the ability to track inventory levels for Preventive Maintenance (PM) work and access to detailed analytics and reporting functionality with drill-down capabilities into maintenance costs. TabWare easily met all of LCI’s needs and was chosen based on its robust spare parts inventory management, equipment history tracking, advanced analytics capabilities and AssetPoint’s numerous successful integrations with Microsoft Dynamics. LCI understands the importance of implementing modern technology, like TabWare CMMS / EAM, for attracting and retaining superior employees, establishing Best Practices and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to drive continued improvement and maintaining an efficient and productive manufacturing environment.

“From the very beginning, we were impressed with the AssetPoint team and the TabWare solution, and it was clear they wanted to partner with us for the long term. TabWare meets all of our functional requirements and will help us improve our PM program. A major differentiator was the robust reporting capabilities of TabWare Analytics, which will allow us to properly track and manage our maintenance costs. With the help of our dedicated CMMS implementation team and division management, we know that TabWare will be an integral part in our continued growth and success. We are all excited to continue the implementation roll out to the additional sites.” Brent Soper, LCI Operations Services Manager, said.
