Didion Milling received the 2013 MAPCON Outstanding Achievement Award at the annual MAPCON Users’ Group Conference on Sept. 23 in West Des Moines, Iowa. The award recognizes innovative companies using MAPCON software to drive efficiency and continuous improvement in operations.

It is used by organizations to plan and manage maintenance work, keep accurate inventory, schedule preventative maintenance, store equipment information, schedule labor and improve overall operational efficiency by reducing downtime.

"MAPCON has revolutionized the way we look at maintenance," said Mike Ensley, CMMS administrator for Didion Milling and presentations coordinator for this year’s MAPCON Users’ Group Conference. "We’re recording real-time information, stocking smarter, using reports to plan better and maximizing plant uptime through the use of planned preventative maintenance."
