Maintenance teams are mobile. They solve problems in the field – they don’t need or want to be tied to a desk all day. Asset management systems thrive on field data, but if your team spends countless hours entering that data, something is wrong.
IBM provides several mobility options, and third-party vendors provide still more. Each one has unique strengths and weaknesses. Because the volume of choices can be overwhelming, Maven has reviewed many of the available technologies and summarized them here.
Mobile software implementation includes unique challenges, such as:
- Hardware and software device selection
- Networking and security considerations
- Enterprise-owned vs. personal (BYOD) devices
- Secure communications between mobile devices and enterprise servers
- Ease of use
- Field users should maximize wrench time, not data entry time
- Data should be accurate and reliable
The Maven team has successfully addressed each of these challenges, and we’d be glad to share that expertise with you. Please contact us.
