Take a look at how Magna sites across North America have used Fiix to easily pass audits and automate PMs

For auto parts manufacturers, no two sites are the same—but the problems they encounter often are. Without a 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 have used Fiix to conquer common maintenance problems in the auto manufacturing industry.

Magna Autosystems

Location: Belleville, Ontario

Before Fiix

Coming from a mix of pen and paper and Excel spreadsheets, the site didn’t have the support it needed. They were failing audits and in desperate need of tracking maintenance records.

After Fiix

Since getting up and running with the system, they haven’t failed a single audit, and are prepared for one at the drop of a hat. Unscheduled downtime has been reduced by 30%, and inventory has been lowered by 10%.

Qualtech Seating Systems

Location: London, Ontario

Before Fiix

Though the site was using a CMMS, they had no 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, they finally have an automated PM program. Their technicians are also able to be fully mobile with the tablets they use in the field.

Cam-Slide

Location: Newmarket, Ontario

Before Fiix

This site was initially using a CMMS, but it left much to be desired. It did not allow them to properly track spare parts, which caused a large gap in their productivity.

After Fiix

The functionality they gained by switching to Fiix has helped their bottom line immensely. They have now streamlined their reactive maintenance process and are leveraging Fiix to help optimize their PM program.

Magna Windsor

Location: Windsor, Ontario

Before Fiix

Using a mix of pen and paper and Excel spreadsheets to track their maintenance practices proved to be very limiting. The site had no way to track their inventory or optimize their practices.

After Fiix

Purchasing a CMMS has allowed them to harness data to automate their PM program and properly keep track of inventory.

Magna Autosystems

Location: Plymouth, Michigan

Before Fiix

This site has never had to suffer through the challenge of not having a CMMS. After hearing of the success the Magna Belleville site was having, this site started using Fiix as soon as it opened.

After Fiix

Implementing a CMMS while opening a new facility has helped this site to keep track of assets right away, so they can start storing historical information. They’ve also hit the ground running with automated PMs.
