Shutterfly to Standardize Maintenance Processes with Accruent’s CMMS

November 27, 2018

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 27, 2018--Accruent, the world’s leading provider of physical resource management solutions, announced today that Shutterfly (NASDAQ: SFLY) has selected Accruent’s Maintenance Connection computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) to increase maintenance workflow efficiency, enhance asset intelligence and reporting capabilities, and improve parts tracking.

Founded in 1999, Shutterfly is a leading retailer and manufacturer of personalized products that connect families and friends through the sharing of memories and photos. Shutterfly has four manufacturing locations and ten offices that produce and distribute lasting keepsakes; award-winning photo books; custom stationery, including cards, announcements, and invitations; as well as unique home décor and photo gifts.

Previously, Shutterfly used a homegrown maintenance management system in combination with a parts tracking system. Shutterfly faced key challenges including inconsistent maintenance processes and reporting across their diverse sites, an inability to effectively track and share spare parts, and workflow inefficiencies. In addition, Shutterfly had a unique need for a triage queue to prioritize urgent maintenance requests and facilitate quick responses.

“The flexibility to configure Maintenance Connection to meet our unique workflows made it the right CMMS choice for us, and the Accruent team showed us how much we could expect to save by deploying it,” said David Bradford, Technical Manager, Shutterfly. “The mobile capability, reporting tools, preventive maintenance workflow, inventory management and asset documentation functionality were all key factors in our decision.”

Accruent’s Maintenance Connection software is a comprehensive CMMS that can help Shutterfly reduce touchpoints, improve reporting accuracy and consistency, and increase labor productivity. Maintenance Connection’s ease-of-use drives high adoption rates at all organizational levels supporting Shutterfly’s aggressive timeline for multi-site implementation.

“We are pleased to bring Shutterfly onto our EAM/CMMS platform,” said Andy Ruse, Vice President, Accruent. “Maintenance Connection can help Shutterfly increase production uptime and achieve accurate KPI visibility across multiple sites.”
