SomAware® – Somas Digital Journey
Somas has developed several tools that are intended to make it easier for our customers but also for the internal work. It gives access to our digital capacity. SomAware® work as a platform with products, systems, solutions, services that give customers access to more information and thereby increasing the performance of their valves. The SomAware® platform will continuously be developed with the process and the business at the customer in mind.
Efficient use of resources
A digital service that we are looking at a lot right now is being developed under the name SomVerify®.
”Here the long-term goal is to be able to offer our customers smart valves that can provide an early indication of whether they require maintenance”, says Kristina Hellström, Project Manager at Somas. ”There is added value in being able to offer our customers service and maintenance based on that information. To only provide service to the valves that need it leads to a more efficient use of resources.”
Somas Digitization Strategy
As an engineering company and with limited expertise in software and data analysis, Somas has developed a digitalization strategy. It is based on partnership and the help of experts. It is important that methods are adapted to the conditions and that we constantly evaluate the need. Dare to take small steps forward is crucial to being able to meet tomorrow’s needs.
