Greenville, SC – June 11, 2014 – AssetPoint, a leading provider of Computerized Maintenance Management Software / Enterprise Asset Management (CMMS / EAM) solutions, announced today that Pieper Farms LLC has chosen the TabWare CMMS / EAM solution for their asset and maintenance management needs in their unique microclimate location in Minnesota.
Pieper Farms has been providing the highest quality seed potatoes since its founding in 1945. Pieper Farms is located in Lake of the Woods, Minnesota, and their location has a one-of-a-kind microclimate and is a designated seed quarantine area that provides an extended growing season and cleaner and safer growing environment. For over 65 years, Pieper Farms has been growing their successful business based on servicing the specific seed needs of potato producers worldwide.
Pieper Farms needed to implement a robust, easy-to-use CMMS / EAM solution before moving to their new facility, and their one-of-a-kind Minnesota Seed Potato Quarantine Area has extremely strict growing regulations. Pieper Farms quickly realized that TabWare was a reliable solution that maximizes asset performance while also reducing maintenance and operations costs, improving profits and ensuring product quality and throughput. As a growing smaller business, it was also important to Pieper Farms that they selected a CMMS / EAM vendor that has a customer base filled with small-to-medium sized businesses in addition to enterprise-sized organizations.
AssetPoint has been a leader in CMMS / EAM solutions for over 30 years, and TabWare, a Best-in-Class CMMS / EAM solution designed by maintenance professionals for maintenance professionals, is utilized by organizations of all sizes and in many industries, such as Oil & Gas, Discrete and Process Manufacturing, Food & Beverage, Chemicals and Mining & Metals. TabWare maximizes asset performance and improves maintenance efficiencies, resulting in reduced operating costs and higher profit margins. TabWare is easy to learn and easy to use, so organizations are able to get up and running in days. AssetPoint offers three flexible deployment options: Software as a Service (SaaS), Online (hosted) and On-site for organizations who want TabWare on their own servers. TabWare is the leading CMMS / EAM solution for organizations that want full functionality without the expense, resources and time other solutions demand.
Pieper Farms also wanted a Software as a Service (SaaS) deployment option that was dependable and audit compliant. AssetPoint passes an annual SSAE 16 Type II audit for system and data security year after year and maintains a formal disaster recovery process to ensure business continuity in the event of a disaster. AssetPoint also upholds an annual overall uptime rate of over 99.97%.
Greg Cole, Manager of Pieper Farms LLC, said, “It was important for us to find a solution provider that was able to meet all of our functionality requirements, and AssetPoint has already proven to be a trusted and valuable partner for us. From the very beginning, we have had a positive experience with TabWare, and that has continued from the selection process to deployment and now to training and support.”
AssetPoint CEO, Mike Levine said, “We are very excited that Pieper Farms has chosen TabWare as their CMMS / EAM solution for their specialized seed growing needs and realize that the SaaS deployment option and AssetPoint’s experience with other farms and smaller businesses was a major deciding factor for them. The ability to manage and collect accurate and timely maintenance data will ensure the farm is operating at maximum performance and efficiency, and we look forward to working with them for many years.”
