The new app by Weir is designed to bring many of the benefits of the previously launched SPM® Asset Management Program (AMP) to the field. Weir hopes it will bring greater functionality to the way service companies manage iron assets from the field.

Until now, maintaining an iron fleet relied on manual data collection. Weir is using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to register each asset by serial number. Through this technology, a spread of iron can be accounted for in minutes. In addition, this automated approach also hopes to reduces human error.

Application

On top of reducing labour expense, the inventory of roughly 900 pieces of iron can be recorded at serial number level detail, where previously it was recorded by product type only.

With SPM® AMP and the app, users can assign assets by crew or unit as well as view Weir inspection certificates, so asset managers know the status of each piece of iron and its location within the fleet in real time. Companies required to show inspection certificates on the jobsite can now access them through the Weir app and email them.
