Improve productivity and uptime with Preventenance

Preventenance serviceFood and drink manufacturers know exactly only too well how much downtime on factory floors, warehouses, and on the road costs them, and any initiative that prevents such instances happening increases profitability and operational efficiency.

In 2017, Datatrade, a Renovotec Group company, launched its Preventenance service, which enables enterprises to be more proactive in their device maintenance and minimise downtime by pre-empting failures in their supply chain.

The new managed service runs realtime healthchecks on printers, scanners, handheld computers and other electronic assets to spot likely failures and enable pre-emptive and timely repairs/replacements to be carried out.

By having total visibility of assets − from barcode printers on factory floors to electronic proof of delivery (EPOD) devices in vans and lorries, food and drink producers can easily see, for example, when scanner batteries or printheads need replacing. The solution relies in part on a cloud-based visibility solution where users can monitor the condition of all their assets from a simple dashboard.

Preventenance is just one of the robust industry solutions offered by Datatrade and the Renovotec Group. The Group is the UK’s largest, and fastest growing, independent rugged hardware and maintenance company; no other independent supplier can match its knowledge and experience.

Visitors to the IntraLogisteX show (February 27-28 Coventry) will be able to learn more about Datatrade’s Preventenance and rugged managed print services (MPS), as well as Renovotec’s wider hardware and maintenance services. See them on Stand 115.
