Background to Abel Building Solutions and their requirements

Abel Building Solutions are a major subsidiary of ANSA McAL, the largest conglomerate in the Caribbean.

ANSA McAL are an iconic Corporate Group comprising of 73 companies in over 8 territories, offering their world-renowned brands and product services and state of the art infrastructure, in over 30 markets across the world and employing a population of close to 6000 people.

Nicholas Maclean, Senior Manager at Ansa Mcal, contacted Trackplan.  He was looking for strong, affordable, easy to use and powerful software to help them manage the facilities and maintenance for a prestigious client, the Central Bank of Trinidad & Tobago.  The bank operate out of one of the iconic “Twin Towers” in Trinidad.

The bank has demanding requirements of Abel, and want to feel confident that their assets and maintenance is being well managed.

The Trackplan Solution

Training all delivered online over 3-4 sessions with key staff at Abel.

There were several challenges for both Abel and Trackplan:

– uploading over 1200 assets across over 50 asset categories

– creation of over 130 PPM schedules, most of which linked to the assets by asset class

– design of over 230 electronic forms covering all manner of PPM checklists and inspection sheets.  Including Quarterly Fan Inspections and Chiller logs

After a few months the assets and PPM Schedules were set up and functioning well:

– Over 400 PPM jobs created each month from the 130 PPM schedules

– Over 100 job requests from the bank and subsequent reactive jobs managed and completed each month.

Now functioning very well after a lot of hard work at the beginning from both sides!
