Keeping labor costs low while at the same time raising the quality of the process seems like an impossible task. However, with an aging workforce and more demanding regulations year after year this is what utility organizations expect their maintenance and service leads to achieve. Being in the dynamic energy provider market with customers only one click away from a new supplier, utility organizations need solutions that support metering processes, improve response times, and honor customer appointments, while seamlessly collecting necessary data. At the same time, grid maintenance demands integration from different data sources like GIS and grid management applications to provide the technician with the right information. This improves first time fix rates and increases grid availability.
The Chemicals’ market has become more complex due to shifts in global demand, market consolidation, commoditization, and uncertainty of the times. In order to meet increasingly complex customer demands and supply chain service expectations, chemical companies need to combine broad operational know-how with predictive analytics & maintenance for advanced results. When maintaining or remodeling production infrastructure timely and accurate documentation is key to internal standard operating procedures and external regulatory compliance.
Leading life sciences companies use continuous innovation to create and capture new business opportunities. They use networks and sophisticated databases to better comply with regulations and improved efficiency through real-time, automated collaboration with suppliers and efficiency in asset operations. E.g. for pharmaceutical organizations it’s crucial that calibrations are performed on schedule and with minimal disruption to productivity. As all maintenance activities must be documented on the spot, mobile solutions provide a key advantage.
Organizations managing linear or continuous assets such as roads, rails, pipelines, and electrical transmission lines face unique asset management challenges. The performance of these assets is the life-blood of these businesses. Specific solutions are needed to support inspections, report on performance and cost data, schedule and prioritize work, and track work progress. Mobile solutions can achieve this by delivering on the spot information, even in remote areas and locations.
Universities, city administrators, and public facilities are in need of digitizing their processes to achieve operational improvements. Mobilizing their workforce captures field technician updates real time like master data changes and payroll time recording.
Keeping production lines running is a top priority for the manufacturing sector. Equipment downtime hits the bottom line by reducing output. Electronic recording of environmental data such as temperature, operating hours, and operating pressure enables better analysis, increases uptime, and simplifies documentation. Reducing paper handouts and documentation can result in a significant cost reduction.
Organizations in the energy exploration industry are challenged to keep up with fast pasted advances in technology and innovation, as well as ongoing changes in the market. Data-driven digital ERP solutions give them real-time insight into all the aspects of operations, enable them to meet environmental requirements, and allow for cutting maintenance costs and maximizing uptime. With more knowledge getting captured in checklists and operating procedures mobile solutions supports business continuity for the next generation of technicians.
