THE CUSTOMER: Kent Corporation – a leading food and feed manufacturer

Kent Corporation is a diversified, family owned corporation with operating subsidiaries involved in corn wet milling, the production of animal feeds, and the manufacture of food products. The entire family of companies has approximately 1,800 employees and does business in the US, Canada, and throughout the world.

THE CHALLENGE: Efficiency, cost-control and easy access to information were lacking

An antiquated maintenance and spare parts system made it next to impossible to retrieve information, slowed down work processes, and led to reactive maintenance, rather than proactive maintenance.

THE SOLUTION: Implementation of Dynaway Enterprise Asset Management (EAM)

Dynaway EAM and the Dynaway Mobile EAM Client have been integrated with Kent Corporation’s new Microsoft Dynamics AX solution in two of their 22 plants, with the rest to follow starting in 2018.

THE BENEFITS: Increased efficiency, ability to act proactively, improved access to information

• Reactive work orders down by 60%

• Overdue work orders halved

• Improved performance and less downtime

• Fast access to data on performance and costs

• More efficient planning

• Simplified compliance – successfully passed outside audits
