A clear user interface and ERP integration lower the barrier to use the solution
“ProDiary ensures continuity in our production. We use the diary to record all events that the next shift should be aware of, as well as fault notifications regarding necessary repairs,” says Per-Arne Kronqvist, Notes Service Manager at UPM.
One of the reasons why ProDiary is suitable for this is that the solution is under continuous development. Its latest features include responsiveness, enabling its use on mobile devices. A major plus of its mobile functionality is the possibility of attaching photos to a fault notification. This is especially useful in fast-paced work on the go, when there is not necessarily time to make entries.
Jyri Kylmälä, General Manager of UPM Kymi mill integrate and pulp mill, is among those who’ve become familiar with the mobile use of ProDiary. Kylmälä is satisfied with the number of entries made and considers that ERP integration is an important reason for this.
“In ProDiary, all you have to do is fill out a few sections and press enter. The app then forwards the fault notification to the ERP system as well. Thanks to this integration, the number of faults repaired grew significantly, which is absolutely a good thing,” says Kylmälä.
He says that the user-friendliness of the app also explains the growth in the number of entries.
“ProDiary is fast and easy, and it has a simple UI. The barrier to use it must be low, as the ages of our employees vary greatly. The app has been successful in this respect.”
