Mobile AppliCationS ARE THE KEY

Has your company already created the necessary prerequisites for using applications on mobile devices in day-to-day business? Added value can be gained quickly through the use of mobile applications, especially in field service, facility management, customer service, and the maintenance of machines and facilities. Thanks to the integration of job tasks in mobile applications, it is possible to achieve maximum acceleration of work processes. Once defined, work processes are also retained – across industries. Once the work tasks are represented in the service app, the entire work process accelerates. Equipped with a smartphone or tablet, employees can easily handle upcoming tasks anytime and anywhere.

MORE CONVENIENT THAN EVER: WORKING ON SITE

Thanks to the integration of backend systems such as ERP, inventory control, CRM or production, all the information about the item to be installed or serviced is available to the employee in the service app right at the job location. Your advantages:

·           Serial numbers, technical data, etc. available right on site

·           Work orders can be accepted remotely by the main office

·           Predefined checklists offer clear guidelines via service app

·           The history of the assignment is always available: Who did what, and when?

The data are also available offline, thanks to synchronization. Therefore, the current quality of the wireless network is irrelevant. Once the work is done, the EASY solution transmits all the information to the integrated backend system and updates it if necessary. Thus, additional processes for production or commercial invoicing can be started immediately and with no loss of time.
