Managing uptime of your critical business assets shouldn’t be a factor of how good your paper adminis on any given day. A risk exists in the gap between work as imagined, and work as done. Daily in our business, we expect work is being carried in a standardised way. A need exists to put controls in place. Paper based systems are a barrier to bridging the risk gap. A digital work management solution will help to control this risk.
