Post from 30. June 2020

More than “on track”: Together with ÖBB-Technische Services BOOM Software wins second place at the Maintenance Award Austria (MA²) with a predictive maintenance concept.

Intelligent maintenance, modern techniques such as the use of a PDA system and a complete documentation through digital maintenance: With the forward-thinking maintenance concept – significantly co-designed by BOOM Software – ÖBB-Technische Services (TS) GmbH in St. Pölten, one of 22 locations, was awarded second place in the MA². “This is more than just an award. The MA² is the benchmark when it comes to efficient maintenance in Austria. The new focus on digitization also demonstrates the degree of innovation and progressiveness of Austria’s maintenance departments,” says Bernhard Labenbacher, Senior IT Project Manager of ÖBB-TS.
