IBM Maximo based Enterprise Asset and Material Management Consultancy and Software Implementation Services

KNPC selected Maximo for its asset management and maintenance capabilities as it needed to drive greater value out of its existing assets, including three large independent refineries, thereby reducing costs and strengthening its competitive positioning. The scope included Finance, Maintenance Management and Materials Management. Functionality was the most important criteria and Maintenance Management was the most important area.

ACC has implemented a major IT project called KIMS to replace KNPC’s core business systems in Maintenance Management, Materials Management, Procurement, and Contracts.

ACC has implemented the Maximo package from MRO Software, which was selected as the best of breed solution to address the requirements of KNPC.

The contract was further extended to cover the supply, installation and maintenance of the IT side of the project (development servers, PCs, printers, networking components, facsimile machines, photocopiers, etc.)

KNPC management required a review of the system performance and system value to the organization from a user perspective. KNPC initiated an internal post implementation review.
