If there is one good thing that the pandemic has brought, it’s the security in and the knowledge that quality and efficiency in assignments can be maintained as well at a distance as if it’s performed on site. It has been shown that work remotely works excellently for both assignments of a project nature as well as ongoing assignments with the help of good planning, elaborate layout and good synchronization with the customer.

Remote work provides
access to key skills

A given advantage with remote work, for in many cases both the customer and us, is a more efficient use of time as travel is reduced. This in turn leads to a more efficient solution and also a smaller impact on the environment.

For the customer it’s also a plus that it’s easier to gain access to specific knowledge or specialist competence that we have, which may not be in the customer’s immediate area. In digital meetings and collaborations, it’s also possible to involve additional experts if necessary, as it’s easier to free time for digital meetings rather than physical ones in another location that requires more time.

Prerequisites are about digital maturity

If there’s an ability to plan the project and we have access to documentation digitally, it’s an excellent basis for remote work. An obvious prerequisite is that the customer has digital tools. If those involved are used to collaborating at a distance it’s also an advantage, so reports and reconciliations have a smooth and rewarding approach.

In some cases, it’s of course required that you are on site to perform a job and to be able to have a close dialogue with the people on site. It depends on the nature of the assignment. There are also projects that initially require a 100% presence on site, but which then move on to being partially or completely managed remotely.

Many possible distance assignments

In a maintenance preparation assignment, where we work with maintenance arrangements on existing and new equipment, we can work remotely to 100%. We run digital reconciliations continuously with the customer. What makes it possible is that the customer has a large part of their data in a maintenance system, which we have access to, as well as other documentation available digitally. In this assignment, the customer handles the verification on site and provides feedback to one of our maintenance engineers on what works and what needs to be adjusted.

In another maintenance project, with a focus on preparation and planning, we have located approximately 50% remotely and the rest on site. What can be done remotely is, for example, planning of maintenance efforts, reconciliations and material orders that are needed for a specific stop.

In a project management assignment, which concerns the abolition of equipment, we have also distributed approximately 50% at a distance. Commissioning and other work that doesn’t need to be done on site, is planned as remote work. Here, we also have access to the systems digitally.

In implemented life cycle assessments, we have handled a large part of the inventory work and supplier contacts remotely and digitally, while the physical inventory of the equipment has taken place on site at the customer.

When we have done flow analyzes, where really only a certain effort requires that you are in place, we have performed analysis work, idea and information generation and reconciliations at a distance.

Other examples, which in many cases are suitable for remote work to some extent, are construction (mechanics and electricity) and programming.

Traditionally, many assignments have been carried out on site. But now many customers have opened up for remote work. Geography is now less important. The customer can still benefit from our expertise, regardless of geographical location.
