Siveco China releases bluebee® for WeChat



Maintenance 4.0 specialist Siveco has announced the release of its bluebee® for WeChat solution. With bluebee® for WeChat, any WeChat user (even non-CMMS users) can simply report problems with their phone by quickly scanning the equipment QR code. This favorably replaces traditional methods such as making a phone call to the maintenance department or, for CMMS users, logging into the system to create a work request. This easy-to-use WeChat solution motivates everyone to report incidents and help prevent disasters, in line with industrial best practices such as those of Lean Manufacturing (or TPM).


bluebee® for WeChat allows users to send a Job Request (sometimes called Work Request or Incident Report) directly by scanning the equipment QR code. The simple screen layout allows users to rapidly select or unselect predefined problem codes, to add a photo and input a short problem description. The solution ensures that useful, structured data is sent to the CMMS, in compliance with ISO 14224 – Collection and exchange of reliability and maintenance data for equipment, instead of useless text as too often happens with CMMS solutions.


bluebee® for WeChat is compatible with Siveco's CMMS Coswin 8i and, through bluebee® sync, with any other CMMS. It can also be deployed without a full CMMS, based on bluebee® cloud. bluebee® for WeChat has already been implemented for client projects such as Mane, a leading fragrance and flavor producer in Shanghai. The solution was developed at the Siveco China R&D Center in Shanghai.
