Aircrete cuts the first cake with full remote plant commissioning on the last week of June in one of its latest projects in Asia, which is one of the many remote and on-line solutions under the Aircrete Stay Connected. program. We continue to support our global customers anywhere and anytime through our Aircrete Stay Connected. program, despite the international travel bans during the COVID-19 pandemic. Customers no longer have to wait for one of our engineers to be on site to have their installed equipment tested and move on to production.
Aircrete Stay Connected. program as a response to pandemic
The world is facing tough times on a global scale and many businesses, even entire industries are under heavy pressure and operating in survival mode. The COVID–19 outbreak has disrupted the daily routines and operations of many companies globally and forces them to find new solutions on how to best conduct their business and optimize their processes during the current pandemic. Organizations are facing travel restrictions and quarantine challenges which requires them to reduce direct contact between employees and their service providers.
Challenging times like these however also create an opportunity for organizations to analyse the current systems and operations and identify potential areas for maintenance and improvement to increase product quality, process optimization and/or cost savings. “Never waste a good crisis” as Winston Churchill famously said once.
The corona pandemic has made remote and virtual solutions more imperative and important than ever before. This also applies to the AAC industry. Still, taking advantage of this situation requires flexibility and creativity of both suppliers and customers.
Aircrete Europe’s Stay Connected. program is a new product range, based on existing plant services, but further optimized for maximum efficiency during the current pandemic. The Aircrete Stay Connected. program includes new features like Virtual Aircrete Plant Scan and Remote Equipment and Plant Commissioning services. Aircrete Europe is therefore fully able to continue to support its clients anywhere and anytime.
