Magna sites across North America

Conquer common maintenance challenges in the auto manufacturing industry

magna logo

For auto parts manufacturers, no two sites are exactly the same — but the challenges their maintenance teams face are often very common. Without an effective CMMS in place, it can be all too easy to fail audits, drown in reactive maintenance, and rack up costly downtime due to breakdowns. Take a look at how Magna sites across North America adopted Fiix to effortlessly pass audits, automate PMs, lower inventory, and much more!

Magna Autosystems

Belleville, Ontario

Before Fiix

Using a mix of pen & paper and Excel spreadsheets, this site was failing audits and in desperate need of better tools to enable tracking of maintenance records.

After Fiix

Since getting their Fiix CMMS up and running, the team is prepared for an audit anytime and have effortlessly passed 100% of them. Better maintenance tracking also led to a reduction in scheduled downtime by 30% and inventory has been lowered by 10%.

“Before adopting Fiix we didn’t keep a history for auditing and had no way to track true costing. But since getting Fiix going, we’ve been able to see the full history of each asset and keep track of all our costs, preparing us for audits."
- Lori Pullen, CMRP, Maintenance Administrator

Qualtech Seating Systems

London, Ontario

Before Fiix

This site was using a different CMMS that did not provide a way to track their finances or control their documents. They were in need of a more complete solution.

After Fiix

In addition to tracking finances and controlling their documents, the functionality gained by switching to Fiix has enabled the team to implement an automated PM program. Technicians are also able to be fully mobile and use tablets for tracking maintenance activities while on the shop floor.
