Optimizing asset performance and uptime is paramount for you to achieve production targets, control costs, and manage safety and compliance. Maintenance is the foundation of your EAM strategy. That’s why VIZIYA designed our software solutions to enhance each step of your work management process and to help you measure the results of your initiatives. With a focus on asset criticality, urgency, and compliance, VIZIYA solutions deliver precisely what you need to implement your asset strategy. The VIZIYA team was formed in 2006 by industry veterans with both maintenance and software expertise. We developed our first product – the WorkAlign Scheduler – in a collaborative partnership with Barrick Gold. In 2013, we acquired Global PTM, an EAM consulting powerhouse. As a result, we have a portfolio of asset management products and services purpose-built for maintenance professionals.
