In our inaugural episode of the ‘Towards Industry 4.0’ series, we chat with Dr. Harsh Sachdev, an Indian O&G veteran and former executive director at Indian Oil Corporation Limited. We discuss how the Industrial workspace has evolved in the 30+ years that he’s been part of it, the rise of digitalization, the elements to drive successful transformation, and the importance of last-mile participation and the deskless workforce.

It was a wonderful experience working with the team at Maximl Labs during our Shutdown. You guys filled the most important gap that has existed i.e., the gap in inter-personal or inter-department/section communication. This time all information was available to me at all times through your solution and I did not have to go through the pain of calling a meeting every time I had to discuss or covey something important. And all this was made so simple and user friendly with the interactive interface, avoiding any complexities. It felt like an upgrade from a retail market to online shopping.

Some key highlights were:

  • Monitoring of critical path, especially when its constantly changing
  • Effective communication and follow-up workflows
  • Centralized knowledge with overall progress of all the jobs
