- ““We were looking for a solution that would support our actions, above all, when planning renovation works and running material policy. With such a number of vehicles that we have at our disposal and a huge amount of spare parts it was impossible to gain control over it without a suitable IT tool.”Janusz Dulik / Director for technical and operational matters and proxy in MPK Legnica
- “The sector of renovations and management of spare parts gained a lot thanks to the implementation. The control in this area improved considerably. At present we can see in the system which parts we use up the most and we can foresee with much greater precision what the annual demand for spare parts will be. And it is translated into concrete savings.”Janusz Dulik / Director for technical and operational matters and proxy in MPK Legnica
