Startup Factory Kunshan upgrades its maintenance with bluebee®

Startup Factory (, a 40,000 sqm state-of-the-art industrial facility in Kunshan, has selected Siveco to deploy the bluebee® Smart Operation & Maintenance solution.
The project will follow Siveco's proven 5-step methodology, aligned with the ISO 55000 Asset Management standard: (1) define your strategy, (2) know your assets, (3) plan and prepare, (4) execute and report, (5) analyze and improve.
Startup Factory will use the "club edition" version of Siveco's award-winning bluebee® solution, preconfigured for the needs of industrial SMEs. Featuring a self-configurable graphical user interface and data import-export tools, the system is entirely cloud-based, without IT support required and open for further expansion.
All employees will use bluebee® for WeChat to report incidents by scanning the asset QR code. Technical staff will perform their maintenance work with support from the bluebee® Android app. The cloud-based portal will give stakeholders unprecedented visibility into the facility's maintenance. An IoT proof-of-concept will also be deployed.
