Optimise equipment monitoring and management with Ermeo

Equipment monitoring. Industry. Asset. Asset. Machine. Ermeo

The monitoring of equipment is an essential element of competitiveness for manufacturers. It is important for the financial performance of companies for example.

Indeed, when properly performed, it allows :

  • To manage resources more easily,
  • Prioritize and optimize investments,
  • Reduce the relapse rate of equipment.

One thing is clear:

Equipment monitoring is under-digitised. However, 70% of operational processescan be optimised with an adapted digital solution.

An equipment management procedure
paper-based equipment management procedures limit the efficiency of field operators and team leaders:

  • Asset tracking is not optimal: operators cannot easily collect and update data (status, states, geolocation, etc) in real time. Re-entry errors are frequent and data analysis is complex.
  • Interventions take time : Identifying the equipment on which to intervene and collecting the information manually is tedious. Oversights and re-interventions are more important.
  • Asset referencing is tedious: referencing equipment is time consuming and manual reporting encourages re-keying errors. Paper documents do not allow for easy creation of databases to have a complete view of your equipment fleet.
  • The control sheets may be incomplete: forgetting to take into account control points increases the risk of equipment malfunction and the number of re-interventions.

These are enough reasons
reasons to
to get rid of paper.

Adopting a digital solution allows for total control of equipment monitoring in order to meet productivity, profitability and quality issues.

1. Digitalising equipment monitoring for better performance

Digital technology offers companies new new possibilities for the management of their operations. Digital solutions are even a key a key factor of competitiveness in a world of rapid technological change.

equipment monitoring takes on a whole new dimension with the the digitization of operational processes in the industry.

Industrial companies
can now manage their entire equipment on a single platform. on a single platform.
A big advantage over cumbersome
cumbersome piles of paper documents in which it is easy to get lost.

Team leaders
have a visibility on the evolution of the state of the equipment. They assign interventions to field operators at the right time, specifying the site, the equipment concerned and the details of the intervention.

In the field, operators save time by focusing on on value-added tasks. Re-entry errors and data loss are eliminated.

Thanks to the digitalisation of equipmentmanagement procedures, manufacturers can prioritise and optimise their investments. They also limit the number of unforeseen events such as breakdowns or anomalies.

Optimize equipment monitoring with a digital solution is to gain :

  • From time on interventions,
  • From the visibility on its asset base,
  • Of the profitability,
  • From the productivity.

2. Ermeo optimizes your equipment tracking

The Ermeo solution solution gives a 360° vision view of your entire equipment fleet.

Ermeo is composed of a mobile application application for operators, and a web platform for the team leader.

Thanks to the web platform, the team leader has an exhaustive view of all the equipment listed
as well as on all all interventions.


Information is collected in databases that can be databases that can be linked together. Indeed, when consulting a piece of equipment, the team leader has access to the different information of the equipment and to the interventions carried out (or planned) on it as well as to the reports.

The data is consolidated and analyzed in dashboards which facilitate and optimize the monitoring of equipment to better manage resources.
The dashboards are synchronized with business software such as CMMS, BI, EDM, etc.


From the mobile application, field operators have a quick access to the interventions to be done.


They can consult all the information they need (location, date, details, photos, history of interventions, etc.), directly on their equipment management procedure. 

With the interactive forms created from the web platform, re-keying errors are completely eliminated. The operator can concentrate on on high value-added tasks and gains in productivity significantly.

At the end of an intervention, a report is automatically generated and sent to the to the team leader.

It is therefore possible to
determine precisely
the equipment or sites that most regularly present defects for anticipate unforeseen events (anomalies, breakdowns).

With the Ermeo solution, optimizing investments and managing resources becomes child's play.

3. Demonstration of equipment referencing and tracking

Nowfind out how to
reference and track equipment with Ermeo with Ermeo using the example of an engine.

a. Engine referencing

From the
mobile application Ermeo, the field operator has access to the intervention that has been assigned to him.

Demo 1 equipment monitoring

With the interactive forms, the user is guided step by step through the engine's referencing.This eliminates the need to make mistakes and re-enter data.

Some information must be collected such as the engine make and its serial number for example.

Demo 2 equipment monitoring
demo follow up photo equipment

It has the opportunity to to illustrate the intervention with photos that he can annotate.

Once the form is completed, the operator can sign and validate his intervention.

demo follow-up equipment mail

The equipment listing is summarized in the form of a report that the operator sends by e-mail to his team leader.

Thanks to the Web Platform, the team leader has an exhaustive view of all the referenced equipment and all the interventions.

Lhe team leader can plan interventions to field operators on the site and equipment he wishes.

Ermeo equipment tracking form

It creates its own forms, made up of bricks to be dragged and dropped. These bricks

can be linked to databases which will be updated at the end of the referencing of an equipment.

The team leader can preview his form before sharing it with his teams.

b. Engine monitoring

From themobile application, the operator performs the follow-up of the engine that he has previously referenced.

Ermeo PPE

Before starting the intervention, the form reminds the safety rules to be respected, such as the wearing of PPE.

All he has to do is select the engine in question: all the information is pre-filled.

The form indicates the checkpoints to evaluate the condition of the engine.

The operator then determines whether the equipment is functional or not. If it is not, he can decide to stop it and report an anomaly.

Ermeo functional equipment monitoring

Before closing his intervention, the operator can fix the anomaly himself or, if he does not have the skills or the adequate equipment, transfer it to one of his colleagues.

Finally, an intervention report is automatically generated and sent to the team leader.

From the web platformplatform, the team leader has access to all the information collected in the field via the databases

The equipment referenced, the interventions and their reports are included in the databases.


Ermeo BDD equipment monitoring

This information is updated in real time at each intervention closing.

The team leader has a 360 view of his equipment fleet. He can effectively manage resources and prioritise investments as effectively as possible.
The Ermeo databases databases are synchronised with business software such as PowerBI.

With its digital solution, Ermeo enables its customers to :

  • Save 25% of intervention time thanks to the suppression of the reporting,
  • Perform up to 70% fewer re-interventions,
  • From limit the downtime of their of their equipment,
  • Focus on high value-added tasks added value.


The monitoring of equipment is optimized in order to achieve cost savingsand productivity and qualityand therefore competitiveness.
