DES and Vetasi: Bringing the power of Infrastructure Visual inspection to IBM Maximo
July 26th 2022: The Vetasi Group, a leading international enterprise asset and facilities management consultancy, has announced a strategic partnership with Digital Engineering Solutions (DES), which will bring the power of DES’ Infrastructure Visual Inspections to Maximo.
„DES is thrilled to be officially partnering with Vetasi and gaining access to broader IBM family; it has already been a great experience and a truly remarkable story for DES,” says Jan Winkler, Co-CEO of Digital Engineering Solutions. „With Vetasi’s global presence, we are expanding into new regions and markets. “We are ready to enter the ever-changing world of IoT and Digital Twins with Vetasi, combining the strength of IBM Maximo, leading enterprise asset management software, and DES’ BIM technology.”
„Since winning the MIT Enterprise Forum for Central Eastern Europe in 2020, we’ve been on an incredible journey with DES.” It is the ideal time to commercialise the partnership into something bigger, global and more strategic,” explains Jarosław Łukasiewicz, CEO of the Vetasi Group. Vetasi’s collaboration with DES provides it access to the rapidly expanding infrastructure market. „DES’ technology will add immediate tangible value to the infrastructure industry; it’s an ideal complement to Vetasi’s already impressive technology stack.”
The inspection solution generates precise critical infrastructure data that is simple to collect and analyse. It enables companies to make informed decisions about maintenance activities and priorities. When used in conjunction with Maximo, these decisions can be automated for maximum efficiency.
Vetasi and DES will take this partnership on the road by demonstrating the technology and providing insight into some incredible use cases at MaximoWorld in Austin, Texas from the 9th to the 11th of August.
