By anticipating the maintenance of their machines, the agricultural farmer Axel Månsson A/S has made great savings in just a few months.

Axel Månsson A/S needed to organize the maintenance of their machines in order to make sure their fleet of tractors, trucks, handling equipment and production lines were seen to in time, thus getting ahead of large repairs and reducing the risk of production downtime. 

The simple, digital solution

Axel Månsson A/S chose Trendlog’s Maintenance Planner to help them automatically plan and organize their service and maintenance.

– We haven’t located any other systems that had the same functionality as Trendlog’s Maintenance Planner and had the features that we were looking for, says Jonas L. Pedersen, operator at Axel Månsson. 

The fact that it is a simple and digital solution is a big plus for the agricultural farmer, says Jonas L. Pedersen and continues:

– You can easily buy other programs that are very complex, where people can’t manage it. If the system isn’t usable in the daily life of the employees, then there is no need to spend time on it. So, the system being as simple as it is, is incredibly valuable.
