Client Success: Smithfield Foods
Smithfield Foods, is a major hog producing company. Their Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) was not integrated with their financial applications. This required duplicate entry of purchase requests, purchase orders, and receipts. It also made it difficult to drill down from the financials to the detailed underlying data to identify the causes of the financial results.
Rippe & Kingston provided the METHOS CMMS that fully integrates with Murphy's financial system. Murphy Farms has reduced its internal paperwork and can easily identify which equipment problems drive the most maintenance cost.
"The biggest benefit of METHOS is the visibility it gives us to what is driving costs, budget information, the status of projects, and historical trends. We use the METHOS system extensively in our operations." Kim Patram, Murphy Farms.
