A Holistic Approach to Digital Transformation

For Digital Transformation, KBC teams with our parent company to review the business needs to drive to a level of highest automation with minimal manning and delivering safer, more reliable and more profitable operations.  We ensure the technology and asset infrastructure is in place to minimize human intervention.  For example, many clients are using automation, operations surveillance technologies, and robots and drones to minimize the need for field operations.  When deployed, the more predictive and reliable operations allows the merging the field operator position with preventative maintenance teams and first responders.  98% of maintenance activities are planned and executed during periodic campaigns.  The merging of the field positions, requires a new management structure and leaner business model.
