How Can Christensen's Site Assessment Program Benefit My Business?

Christensen USA is dedicated to helping businesses optimize their operations, providing a variety of fuel solutions tailored to their needs. Our Site Assessment Program is one solution that can greatly help your lubrication program and equipment reliability. It does so by providing the on-site technical expertise of Christensen technical advisors who will go through your facilities, examine your processes and determine if there are areas of improvement while offering solutions to level-up the lubrication and maintenance practices of your equipment and vehicles. 

 

What Christensen Site Assessment Can Do For Your Business

With a survey by a Christensen technical advisor, your business gets a consultation from an industry expert who will highlight opportunities for improvement, and your reliability team will receive one-on-one lubricants training as the industry expert inspects the facility. With this, your lubrication program receives rapid feedback from an expert who is thoroughly inspecting your facilities and examining your procedures.

 

The benefits include knowing that the right lubricant is being used for each application, identifying best practices or what your organization is getting right, noting improvement opportunities, and leveraging the potential to improve component life and equipment reliability. These also have the potential to reduce maintenance costs. 

 

Your Christensen technical advisor is an industry expert who will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your lubrication program. After this, they will present an equipment and lubricant application review. With this, your team and the Christensen industry expert will identify possible KPI improvement projects that can be implemented in the future. Upon implementation of the projects, the value of each optimization is recorded to quantify the effectiveness and provide a baseline for any future endeavors.
