Mipro VIVO asset management solution to control FTA's spare parts inventory for rail signalling equipment

Mipro’s industrial cloud-based service solution Mipro VIVO is used to manage the Finnish Transport Agency’s (FTA) rail signalling spare parts storage since the beginning of March 2017.

Over a period of three months, Mipro developed the service solution for the Finnish Transport Agency to manage the spare parts for mission critical rail signalling equipment. The cloud-based software solution and related processes support all maintenance organisations and signalling equipment providers along the Finnish national rail network. The contract covers 6+2 years.

The Mipro VIVO asset management service is part of Mipro’s Industrial Cloud ecosystem that is designed to provide IoT transactions, analytics and reporting capabilities for ”Fast IT” applications.

“This contract highlights Mipro’s growing offering in value-adding software and service solutions. In the long run our ”one pattern” approach gives Mipro’s customers great flexibility to transform static asset monitoring into real-time events and statuses that can be used to support new use cases and business needs,” says Markus Santanen, Director Services at Mipro.


“The national spare parts inventory management is an important support process that serves the outsourced maintenance and has an impact on the punctuality of traffic,” says Aki Härkönen, Head of ERTMS development at FTA.


“Digital traffic infrastructure management requires customised software solutions that can be quickly deployed without years of development work. The Finnish Transport Agency needs agile cooperation partners like Mipro that have customer relationships in various business sectors, and consequently capabilities that are difficult to maintain in the agency environment. Mipro won a fair competitive tendering and delivered the service on a tight schedule as promised.”
