    My name is Freddy Largo. I’m Product Manager of IBM MAXIMO software in SINERGYTEAM that is a IBM Partner in Ecuador.
    I’m interested in take a course in person of IBM MAXIMO OIL & GAS and MAXIMO 7.5 New Features.

    we have three customers in the area of OIL & GAS, one of them has the industry solution and the other two are analyzing. So you can see that is urgent for us to take the training because we don’t have experience implementing OIL & GAS.

    Please tell me if you can help me.

    I’m the Planner for Wake County Public Schools in Raleigh NC. Among other areas I schedule maintenance for the counties motor pool. We are upgrading to 7.5 and I would like to know the best way to track mileage on vehicle assets to plan service. I’ve looked into the meters function but am not sure I quite understand how to work that with the assets and their PMs.
