For asset-heavy industries, maintenance is the core of optimizing asset performance and extension of life. Periodic checks, maintenance, and installations are the integral processes that contain numerous checklists, process safety manuals, and data collection.
To carry out successful maintenance, field workers need to
- Conduct proper assessments
- Execute Work Orders
- Check for spare parts and book materials consumed
- Book time spent
- Follow Standing Operating Procedures (SOPs) and manuals to ensure compliance
- Maintain team collaboration
If your organization is predominantly using paper forms or spreadsheets to perform the above tasks, there is a high risk of data loss, inaccurate information and lack of consistency between customer information and work orders, resulting in repeat visits, high operational cost, and lower productivity.
Mobile Forms solve the majority of these challenges. Upgrading to mobile forms can automate a significant portion of the tasks, provide real-time insights, and make the job easy for on-field teams.
Mobile Forms empower field technicians to collect data through mobile devices anywhere- with or without connectivity. The submitted forms can synchronize to any backend system, post to webhooks or email PDFs to supervisors in real-time for quick decision making.
Beyond ease of usage and cost-saving, upgrading to mobile forms has several other benefits in the area of maintenance and installations in the field:
- Real-time insights directly from the field
No longer do you have to deal with outdated information sifting through mountains of paperwork. Track the productivity of the field staff, monitor KPIs, and gauge asset health all from a live dashboard. Improve your decision-making capacity with real-time insights from the field.
- Move from reactive to predictive maintenance
Predictive maintenance is the new mantra in industries currently. Mobile Forms enable real-time data with contextual information to accurately predict the performance and take preventive actions accordingly.
- Enhance compliance
To achieve compliance, workers spend an ample amount of time to follow process manuals to meet those compliance regulations. Features such as auto-populate, validation checks, GPS capture, time stamp, and digital signatures help to enhance compliance.
- Approve purchase orders remotely
Purchase Order approvals are one of the primary causes of delays during the replacement of equipment/parts. To get approvals, workers often have to move documents back and forth from the field to the office and approvals are often subject to the availability of the managers. Cut the hassle and provide instant purchase orders approvals directly from mobile forms.
- Real-time collaboration
Asset Maintenance involves many stakeholders like field workers, environment, health & safety professionals, and supervisors who are all involved at various levels of authorization to perform maintenance and installations. With Mobile Forms, you can automate workflows and enable real-time team collaboration.
