The Service Engine
Avoid downtime and malfunctions with this maintenance tool
At your horticultural business, you want to make sure that all processes continue and you also want to avoid fines or warnings. With the help of the Service Engine, this is all possible. Maintenance has to be done regularly, but it is something that is often postponed because it is easily forgotten in the many activities to keep the nursery running. The result: downtime, breakdowns, unnecessary waiting times, and costs.
Royal Brinkman and Hortispares introduce a new and handy tool: the Service Engine. With this system, it is possible to monitor all service and maintenance tasks on your machines and equipment, but also to communicate with your service engineers to solve problems as quickly as possible. Export the service and maintenance history with ease to get a perfect insight into the entire service and maintenance department.
Why the Service Engine?
It is never convenient when a machine unexpectedly comes to a standstill. Regular preventive maintenance prevents this.
You have insight into the maintenance tasks inside your company, organizing and combining repairs and review the history for all your objects.
All your employees can easily report malfunctions in the Service Engine app. The responsible person then receives the task via a push notification.
Over 70 customers already tried the Service Engine

Ter Laak, Kwekerij R Mooyman and Sion Orchids. The Service Engine can be used for all types of crops. Cultivation of flowers and plants as well as vegetable businesses.
Besides Dutch growers, there are also several international growers using the Service Engine. Wagagai is an Uganda based grower and has been using the Service Engine for 1.5 years now. “Through Royal Brinkman, I joined the Service Engine. The reason we purchased the Service Engine is that we can easily monitor hundreds of machines/devices in a structured way. If this does not happen, management will have to intervene in time. The Service Engine records all maintenance on all equipment and includes engines / vehicles / tractors / trucks / cold stores / greenhouse shafts / pumps / sieving machines / air compressors / filtration equipment, etc. This makes the Service Engine versatile!”
“At Wagagai, one person is dedicated to creating all equipment as an individual input. Then the operator uploads on a regular basis the scanned and signed checklist and the action performed on each equipment. This also makes it easy for the inspector to verify service/repairs according to the maintenance schedule.”
