The coronavirus turns both our social and professional existence upside down by reducing our daily life and the economy to a minimum. Measures are needed to prevent further rapid spread of the coronavirus. In order to be there for customers in emergencies, both production sites and PALFINGER service centres will remain in operation until further notice.
To ensure that our customers can keep making their important contribution
At the moment many transport companies and drivers are working overtime to ensure that necessary goods are delivered to the supermarkets. Among other things, municipal companies guarantee the disposal of waste and enable a continued functional recycling management. Our railway solutions also make a significant contribution to maintaining the urgently needed railway infrastructure. Each and every single one of them is doing an indispensable and valuable job in these uncertain times.
“Mastering extra hours on a large scale with such great commitment should not be taken for granted and we would like to express our thanks to all customers and service partners. This makes it even more important for us to provide our customers with the best possible support during this time and to maintain and ensure our services as far as possible – while ensuring compliance with all health policy requirements and in constant/direct communication with the authorities.”
– Gerhard Sturm, SVP Global Sales & Service.
Digital, reliable and secure service help via Smart Eye
During the current corona crisis, PALFINGER is relying particularly on digital remote assistance solutions such as Smart Eye to protect both its customers and employees from infection with the corona virus.
The PALFINGER Smart Eye is a purely voice-controlled service tool with integrated camera, loudspeaker and display, with which services can be carried out with bidirectional live support. The hands-free and intuitive operation enables the Smart Eye user to identify the causes of problems, share knowledge in real time and solve service challenges efficiently and quickly.
Furthermore, service technicians can access all PALFINGER products equipped with the PALdiag diagnostic system and solve the problem from home.
Availability of spare parts ensured even during the crisis
The PALFINGER spare parts centre is still open to ensure that the required PALFINGER original spare parts are available as quickly as possible. Although the team is in home office, these circumstances do not prevent them from handling all customer requirements in the usual maintaining high quality and supplying them with a high availability of spare parts.
“Despite the current circumstances in Europe, our stock is secured and has been increased accordingly in order to be able to offer the best possible availability during this time as well. The shipment of spare parts is still guaranteed by our logistics service providers. This means we can continue to help our customers even in the case of severe machine failures,” explains Alexander Pittertschatscher, Head of Spare Parts Center EMEA.
PALFINGER never lets anyone down. Together we will face this challenge by means of working together in a strong partnership and maintaining our close cooperation.
