Cohesive has won a prestigious IBM award for the first implementation of IBM Maximo Application Suite (MAS) in the Poland, Baltic, Ukraine region in 2023.

The award, received at the IBM Business Partner Summit in Warsaw, acknowledges the work by Cohesive Poland in successfully implementing MAS for Polregio, Poland’s largest rail carrier.

Cohesive’s role in the programme  included analysis and design, configuration, tests and training. Our solution also covered areas including automatic scheduling of work orders, a repository of assets, inventory management and planning of preventative maintenance.

The implementation of the advanced IBM solution is empowering Polregio with the capability to more efficiently manage its assets. The on-premises software, which includes advanced analytics, is helping it to increase its resilience against potential challenges and to provide a reliable, safe service for the 97 million passengers who use its services annually.

Zbigniew Cieślak, Transportation Sector Director CEE at Cohesive, said he was thrilled to receive the award. “Our team executed the implementation

according to the planned schedule and scope, but most importantly, they fostered excellent collaboration with Polregio and this was repeatedly acknowledged by our client’s steering committee.”

Pawl Szczęsny, IBM Sustainability Software Leader for Poland and Baltics, said: “We are glad that the joint efforts with our business partner resulted in the first implementation of IBM Maximo Application Suite in the region.

“I am convinced, that the experience gained will help in subsequent projects. Once again, I would like to thank Cohesive for their commitment and convincing PolRegio to start their asset management adventure with the IBM solution.”

The award winners were evaluated in as many as 18 categories, including innovation and sustainable development. IBM said they were selected as the best business partners, “in appreciation of their contribution to the development of the business in the past year.”

As a platinum partner to IBM and the world’s largest implementer of Maximo, Cohesive brings in-depth knowledge and delivery capabilities around MAS and a track record of Maximo implementations and integrations within our team which stretches back more than two decades. Our consulting, technology and services expertise complement IBM’s industry-leading technology offerings.

The award cements Cohesive Poland’s reputation as a leader in technology implementations. It was recently named a Forbes diamond winner – the award given to the fastest-growing Polish companies.
