Efora Oy, the Stora-Enso maintenance company, has been a forerunner in adopting new technologies. Efora has started to deploy CollaXion™ platform in the Stora-Enso Varkaus site.
Efora’s project engineer Jari Natunen tells: ”We collected equipment data and documents electronically from suppliers to our SAP system via CollaXion™ in our recent investment project. In this way we avoided vain manual work and errors in data transmission. The new data is more standardized, exact and comprehensive compared to the former manual data transmission. The use of CollaXion™ is easy. It connects suppliers’ data models to our SAP data models – we don’t need to care does the data element go to the right attribute position. The way you operate with it is independent of the supplier you are working with.”
Pasi Markkanen, Efora’s maintenance engineer, explains that the CollaXion™ service has been applied in Metso’s valve service management since summer 2014. “The installed-base information will be up-to-date, communication with the supplier is easy and its history will be transparent and available to all it might concern, automatic data transfer will reduce manual work and the delivery of open tasks can be followed from the platform” Pasi lists the main benefits CollaXion™ offers.
