“Clients are looking for ways to make an instant impact in their lubrication initiatives, and a self-paced survey allows them to assess their program online, at their own convenience,” says Jason Kopschinsky, Reliability Services Manager of Trico Corporation.

Trico creates an individualized, detailed written report along with a visual scorecard summarizing opportunities for immediate improvement in key areas compared to existing practices and conditions based on the information provided in the survey. Each assessment report concludes with an Executive Summary that specifies target areas for most rapid return on investment, and details next steps that (if implemented) will reenergize a lubrication management program to peak-performance.
