Building a coalition of suppliers for collaborative concepts.
Overhead crane management can be complicated and confusing.
As industry veterans, Crane Buzz has witnessed the good, the bad and the ugly.
We base our guiding principles on what we have learned through the years and adherence to industry-accepted Best Practices.
Crane Buzz has the experience and technical knowledge to assist you in analyzing your overhead handling requirements; as they exist now and what you may want to consider for the future as your business changes – we believe in providing flexibility!
PSAT (Production Site Assessment Tool)
The purpose of the Crane Buzz PSAT is to provide you and your staff with a complete evaluation of your company’s existing and future overhead lifting equipment and related assets. The PSAT includes, but is not limited to; facilities, process, equipment, safety and human resources.
Once the assessment has been completed, a comprehensive written report will be provided that will detail a strategy with recommendations for a more productive, lower cost and safer operation.
New Equipment / System Specifications
- Too often we see Crane and Hoist project specifications that are outdated, contradictory, ambiguous, slanted toward a single supplier or just poorly written. Crane Buzz understands the industry and technical aspects of the equipment and offers the following specification services:
Do you use a third party crane service company to maintain your overhead cranes? Have you ever wondered whose best interest is being served in this relationship? Do you have questions about the vendor’s technical ability, compliance knowledge / adherence and the quality of the personal attention you receive? You are not alone! “Trust, but verify” as a former U.S. President once said.
Crane Buzz provides:
- Supplier searches
- Proximity to your facility and services provided are two key considerations
- We compile a list of the best and closest candidates and then deliver to you the results of the Crane Buzz Supplier Survey as completed by all prospects.
- We do not make recommendations but simply provide that facts as we find them, then review these with you so you can make a selection that is best for you and your operation.
- Supplier vetting
- Are they qualified as defined by the industry’s Governing Bodies?
- What is their safety record?
- What type of liability insurance and coverage limitations do they carry?
- Fixed pricing for services, hourly rates and parts cost
- After we understand what is important to you, we write a detailed RFQ (Request for Quote) that calls out these requirements in a clear scope of work, using unambiguous terminology, which allows for you to receive concise, comparable quotes.
No one will watch after your equipment better than you. Our Reliability evaluations and programs are designed to help you do just that.
