Andromeda Systems, Incorporated (ASI) is proud to announce a partnership with Big Storm Brewing Co., one of the fastest growing independent craft breweries in Florida.

“As a small business owner, it’s critical that we stay a step ahead when it comes to the service and maintenance of our entire brewing operation – from cleaning the boilers to servicing the canning line to making sure all of our vehicles get their oil changed on time,” said Big Storm owner L.J. Govoni. “ASI’s software program allows us, in one simple-to use program, to do just that. It keeps our team on task both today, next week, next month and next year while protecting the investment we’ve made in our equipment. In short, this program will save us money,” Govoni added.

OptiAM® EAM software, which was originally developed for the U.S. military, will be used to manage the Preventive Maintenance (PM) schedule for nearly 80 assets at Big Storm’s main brewing facility in Pinellas County. That will include monitoring the production line, brewing, and facility maintenance. OptiAM® will also allow Big Storm to record all corrective actions and repair orders.

Big Storm plans to use OptiAM® at its original brewing facility in Pasco County as well.

“ASI is excited to bring this technology to a growing small business like Big Storm and provide an asset to the brewing industry to maximize productivity and decrease operating costs,” said ASI COO Jon Leverette.
