Adven gains visibility into energy-sector material flows with mScales
Adven Oy is a leading provider of energy and water solutions in Northern Europe. The company generates steam, heat and cold for the industry and implements various solutions to promote energy, water and material efficiency for customers. In fuel reporting, Adven relies on mScales' digital weighing services, which have brought important transparency to the company's operations.
“We use mScales to weigh fuels and to count their amount of energy. For us, digital weighing service is an important management tool which helps us to monitor fuel consumption in all our factories”, says Adven’s Development Manager Vesa Tiikkaja.
Centralized fuel reporting clarifies and streamlines the business
Adven has operations in various factories across Finland, which sets its own challenges for data management. The company decided to approach the challenges of operational transparency with centralized fuel reporting. According to Vesa, Adven considered different service providers, but finally mScales convinced them with its cost-effectiveness and ease of use. In addition to fuel weighing, the company has found significant help in warehouse management from the service. The remote maintenance services and additional functional modules provided by mScales are part of the service package used by Adven.
“mScales has turned out to be a very practical tool for us, as it allows us to track fuel deliveries in real time. Weighing is also easy; the truck is driven to the scale and the driver identifies with a weighing code, after which the fuel is recorded in the mScales system. For example, we weigh forest chips, recycled wood chips and peat,” Vesa describes.
First-class digital services exceed expectations
The digital weighing service has made the company's daily life easier and clearer by replacing factory-specific scales that previously had to be checked manually on site. According to Vesa, successful partnership has expanded over the years to other needs. Adven has supplemented its mScales system with the analysis and sampling required in the energy sector in particular, as well as the storage of warehouse management, photographs and documents for weighing events with additional modules. The warehouse management and reporting module enables Adven to have more efficient material management and profitable logistics. Today, first-class digital services have become an irreplaceable part of Adven’s business.
“Working with mScales has been really easy from the beginning. In our experience, implementing digital services was easy and fast, because we received comprehensive user training from them. I believe we will continue and even expand our collaboration with mScales in the future. Our service package also includes a maintenance contract and additional functional modules, which have brought clarity to our operations. Mobile services and the benefits they bring have exceeded our expectations,” Vesa says.
