The wireless world offers many cost saving opportunities in time and materials and provides your workforce the opportunity to be more flexible.
Most Maintenance & Reliability programs are computerized, yet many organizations still plan and schedule digitally only to print out the work for the technicians. That printed work is then required to be filled out, turned in, and then entered into the CMMS and Reliability Management System. What is being lost in time and materials and what could you do with those resources if freed up?
Paper-based inspection systems are very labor intensive and error prone. From duplicate entries and inconsistent inspection criteria to difficulty in seeing trends or identifying systemic problems, and there was a general lack of data validation. Many details typically get lost in transcribing from paper to system. It’s hard to see the big picture and takes too long to act on recommendations.
Ivara EXP Mobile is a handheld wireless device that enables an organization to more efficiently deploy its resources and make the full transition into a digital M&R program. Instead of printing out work orders or inspection routes, Technicians are assigned to an Ivara handheld device. You can use Ivara Mobile to collect indicator readings and then upload the data into Ivara which is then synchronized with your CMMS system. Imagine the time savings by directly collecting information and eliminating the interpretation and entering of data from a printout into your CMMS and Reliability Management System.
Ivara EXP Remote is a mobile application intended to be used independently of Ivara in a disconnected environment. Ivara EXP Remote runs on a mobile computer such as a Tablet PC or a laptop and has the same look and feel as Ivara EXP. It is a simplified version of the Ivara desktop application that provides basic functions relevant for use in a remote location. Information collected in the field goes directly into the remote computer database, and is then synchronized with the network database through a synchronization server. Direct capture of asset performance information in remote locations provides more efficient use of labor resources, reduced errors in recording inspections and work in the field as well as more timely data on which to make fast and accurate maintenance decisions.
Go mobile with Ivara Remote and get visibility to asset data, work orders, current and historical condition information in a disconnected mode. Get empowered to make fast and accurate maintenance decisions based on accepted best practices and real-time asset health.
