Delivery ethos & values, the perfect fit

Complete operation consolidation for Z Energy through implementing the MEX CMMS, handled with ease and flexibility. 

Z Energy supplies fuel to Kiwis up and down the country from retail customers to large commercial customers like airlines, trucking companies, mines, shipping companies and vehicle fleet operators. Their purpose is simple, to solve what matters for a moving world. So when Z itself needed to make a big move to keep their operations running smoothly, they had to find the right partner they could trust to get them there.

The task at hand was to combine two separate fuel terminal networks (the Z and Caltex brands) into a single operation with a single consolidated maintenance system. With no CMMS in place for one of these brands and data migrating of an existing older CMMS, this was set to be a fundamental step change for Z.

The decision to move to MEX had been made so Z turned to Altivate to scope and implement the project. Maintenance Manager Dougal explains why the choice was an easy one. “The Altivate team had been there and done it before.” Altivate’s expertise in MEX made the process a straightforward one, even when dealing with Z’s changing project timeline. “We found them to be flexible and were able to adapt to our consistently shifting timeframe.” Dougal and the team at Z were extremely happy with the working relationship with Altivate. “They listen to our needs and can tailor solutions to suit.” Altivate’s direct experience with the MEX software had direct benefits; “speeding up the implementation.”

The rational reasons for choosing to partner with Altivate are clear, but Dougal explains it was more than just that. “Ultimately, they’re a really good fit for Z in their values and delivery ethos. We continue to work with them on other projects because they add so much value.” It looks like this is a partnership that’s set to be ongoing.

“We continue to work with them because they add so much value.”
