Interview with GSB – Sonderabfall-Entsorgung Bayern GmbH as Europe’s largest hazardous waste disposal company.
GSB stands for responsible waste management throughout Bavaria with more than half a century of experience.
GSB has been working with Tegos Rosenheim since 2001 and uses their Envis software for waste disposal and recycling management. A powerful ERP system with mature industry functionality.
In 2019, GSB opted for the modern CMMS solution MAIN-TOOL.
What was the situation at GSB before the introduction of MAIN-TOOL?
Sebastian Schmitt, Technical Services: “The situation was as follows: We had a system for generating maintenance orders. These were generated in paper form, which took four hours every week, sorting, filing and making them available to the departments. As this was no longer up to date, GSB decided to look for a modern solution that could be attached to the Microsoft Dynamics NAV enterprise resource planning system. After market research and a summary, the decision was made to go the way of Tegos Rosenheim with MAIN-TOOL from GLI Business Solutions.
How would you rate your work with MAIN-TOOL?
What has changed positively in the company since then?
Sebastian Schmitt: “We worked very intensively with MAIN-TOOL and recorded the master data. After setting it up, we were able to migrate the first departments.
To sum up, it is a pleasant interface for the user on which he can immediately see the current activities. He has an overview of what is pending this week and what needs to be done next week. For the supervisors, MAIN-TOOL offers the advantage that they can fulfil their duty and follow-up easily and at any time.”
Katja Zeller, engineer: “It is very important to say here that we have a very complex system that is described quite elaborately with system codes and location codes. These were previously maintained in Excel and were available as a database. Now with MAIN-TOOL it is a great advantage that this data is linked to the activities. The maintenance and recurring inspections are directly linked to the respective object. We have much more transparency here. We have audit-proof, clear, easy-to-find documentation. MAIN-TOOL makes it possible to search in a completely different way or to have data displayed as needed. That is a big advantage.”
Tibor Hlozanek, Network Administrator / KBD: “From an IT point of view, it was a software consolidation, because the product we used before for maintenance was no longer state of the art and had to be replaced. MAIN-TOOL enabled us to map all maintenance processes without high training costs.
This is due to the fact that two industry modules (solutions) are housed under the umbrella of Microsoft Business Solution Navision and have the same operating patterns.
MAIN-TOOL is used on the move with the movatix app from Tegos. This offers the user a clearly structured interface for easy operation.”
