The software, deployed in the cloud, will be used to support all equipment maintenance requirements including predictive maintenance, daily and weekly ride checks, as well as routine and reactive works.
"In order to consistently create memorable experiences for our customers, ride availability and guest satisfaction are paramount," comments Dawn Elson, Group Engineering Director, Merlin Entertainments. "Infor CloudSuite Facilities Management is core to our asset management strategy, ensuring ride availability and delivering the visibility to enable us to centralize oversight and employ consistent and common standards across our global portfolio. Infor's expertise, experience and support in delivering the solution within ambitious timescales was second to none, and we have absolute confidence that we have the optimum system to support our global asset management going forward."

"Through supporting all scheduled maintenance, SLAs and preventative maintenance, as well as delivering reports tailored to specific requirements, Infor helps deliver all-important visibility required to anticipate and mitigate issues before they occur."
