Overall Satisfaction with Samsara Equipment Monitoring

Being a textile manufacturing plant, the main issue for us was loss and theft, multi-site movement of equipment transfers, and other repetitive tasks that could've been done, managed, and located using technology that was not only reliable but effective and efficient for the manufacturing plant as a whole. As the construction of our new plant/factory could not afford downtime, we wanted to have a proactive approach to our maintenance programs, and if in case any incident does occur, we would want to simplify the process of identifying and resolving the issue as a whole - thus reducing downtime and improving efficiency. So, our scope revolves around identifying and keeping track of items as well as having ensured that technology helps identify, reduce paperwork, and keep track of and locate problems in machinery at our sites.

  • Positive: Savings on cost, efficiencies and time.
  • Positive: Management of Assets, Use, Reduction in Redundancies.
  • Negative: Customer Service needs improvement.
Great software for managing and tracking assets, identifying maintenance/breakdowns in assets, and ensuring the best productivity per asset. Cost analysis benefit / Service provision for 1 unit as well - which is good enough for testing purposes Ease of use, dashboards are easy to view and understand Comprehensive collection of data - presentation of information in required format Limitation on flexible use of API, thus leading to repetition of information/data leading to inefficient hours Flexibility in the units provided/not much to do in terms of modification of assets, its just a plug and play system.

The best part about the software is its openness to integration. With a flexible API, we integrated a lot of modules with the software, thus ensuring the safety of history/records as per our needs without having to pay more for customization. The system is not only user-friendly but well thought out. The ease of access to the system leads to lower training costs and ensures that the team is chunking out savings and driving efficiencies throughout. Since Samsara does not discriminate on the minimum number of vehicles/assets that are to be tracked, it makes it far easier to utilize. However, on things to improve - Samsara can have the software tweaked to cater to more than the construction industry, whereby companies such as us who are into multiple domains can benefit from the same. Also, if there were a one-time cost for availing services, it would mean the world to clients like us!
