'S-Gravenzande - Wagagai is the first foreign horticulture company to opt for Royal Brinkman's Service Engine. In mid-2017, Royal Brinkman launched the Service Engine, a digital service and maintenance tool, available on smartphones and PC, with which the grower gains more insight into service and maintenance at the nursery.
Service & maintenance of equipment is of great importance to an African company like Wagagai. They produce cuttings and starting material for customers such as Beekenkamp, Selecta and Deliflor. Wagagai has 370,000 m2 of greenhouses in the south of Uganda and it is important to them that they make responsible choices with regard to the purchase, replacement or repair of equipment and machines.
Downtime is deterioration and via the Service Engine preventive tasks are monitored in the areas of maintenance, faults, inspections and repairs. This prolongs the service life, which contributes to sustainability. In addition, the Service Engine is a means of communication with which tasks are digitally created and shared with other employees. Stef de Jong, Product Specialist and account manager for Digital Tools at Royal Brinkman:
"The Service Engine is currently also available in English and we are working on French, Spanish, German and Polish language versions. With the installation of the Service Engine at Wagagai, it has now been launched worldwide! "
