A broken equipment service system
A leading multinational pharmaceutical company operating over 100 pieces of GE Healthcare Life Sciences equipment on its Boston-based campus implemented a service residency program to support its workflow.
Equipment service issues were previously addressed by a third party. Team members requesting service opened a purchase order (PO) which was then processed by the third party. The third party opened a second PO before contacting GE Healthcare to order necessary parts and complete the repair.
This multi-step process lacked both transparency and efficiency. A seven-business-day turnaround time for a total repair solution resulted in unprecedented equipment downtime.

A single point of contact for service means speed and efficiency when addressing issues, whether through a quick phone call for trusted advice or a short visit to the lab with spare parts in the truck. A 99% first-time fix rate has put user and equipment productivity at an all-time high. Red tape and slow turnaround are things of the past.
Through regular maintenance and user education, Sal has halved mechanical issues since the start of the agreement. This has freed up users to focus on scientific breakthroughs, not breakdowns. Should a complex issue occur, Sal can collaborate seamlessly with an OptiRun application specialist to define the problem and swiftly execute a solution.
With 99% uptime, our client can accurately forecast and meet the highest revenue goals. The service residency contract also optimizes for cost when it comes to other customer needs. Sal manages all installations and updates from start to finish, and maintains the equipment for consistent, long-term performance, maximizing its longevity.
