Looking back on 2021, there were a lot of great things that happened here at Projetech. It was really a year of exponential growth for us in countless ways, and we doubled down on our commitment to do our very best work and offer the best possible solutions for our clients while also doing even more than ever before to give back to the Cincinnati, Ohio community we call home.
MaximoWorld 2021 was back in full swing this summer in Florida, and for everyone who attended, it was a wonderful chance to catch up with colleagues and friends while learning more about Maximo. Especially after not seeing anyone for over a year, it was refreshing to meet face to face once again. The Maximo ecosystem continues to grow in the MORE Maximo community as well, which has grown to over 1,500 active members with new discussions each and everyday, check it out!
Along with this, Projetech was recognized for some outstanding awards, like being named a finalist for 2021 Best Places to Work Awards by The Cincinnati Business Courier. It speaks to how important it is that we prioritize our team members, and we owe it all to the people that make Projetech great every day. We also obtained ISO 9001:2015 Certification for IBM Maximo Cloud Services, a huge milestone and accomplishment that showcases how we continue to improve on our processes to meet our customer’s needs and expectations.
Outside of the office, we continued to work with local students through the Adopt A Class mentoring program, was the title sponsor for the Clovernook Country Club Open Tournament benefiting First Tee, donated 70 Thanksgiving meals to the Westside community, donated to the 1N5 organization for suicide prevention, and we even donated the Green Township Cemetery Memorial Marker to pay tribute to the incredible history of our community.
Our colleagues achieved some great things of their own, too. Just to name a few, Cory Jackson received his CompTIA Security+ certification, William Symons & Allan Henle both received their IBM Certified Deployment Professional - Maximo Asset Management v7.6 Functional Analyst certification, and Joe Kelley successfully finished his first race as a participant in the 23rd Flying Pig Marathon! Additionally, we welcomed a few new members to the Projetech family. Congrats to Troy Elsen & Amanda (Madison Rose), Will Symons & Holli (Briggs), and Phil Runion & Bridget (Maeve).
Most importantly, we couldn’t have achieved any of this without all of the outstanding and committed Projetechers that truly make our company one of a kind. Working together, we’ve been able to accomplish so much, and we’re all looking forward to 2022 and what’s to come in the year ahead!
Smart Stuff: A Brief History of EAM
Early on, I realized that the solution to maximizing the return on my capital investments was in computerized asset management, and I got hooked by the possibilities technology affords. It is really cool stuff. I still get excited by the evolution of technology. In fact, I can’t imagine not being excited about it! It keeps me on my toes, looking out for the next best thing.Today, we track more stuff related to maintenance and reliability than ever before, but this is just the beginning. Did you know that IBM has predicted within the next decade, Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) systems will digitally track over a trillion objects worldwide?Continue Reading
