The Work Management application provides graphical job cards where asset management professionals can access assigned work order details, critical asset specifics, part lists, and instructions. With the application, field engineers and technicians can create work orders at the point of origin and update, complete, and submit planned work orders to their EAM system of record. They can also log details like failure codes and closing comments to capture critical downtime data that can improve asset reliability. Blue Dot has developed the application using hybrid HTML5 and native Apple iOS standards. Work Management can be accessed whether connected or disconnected (offline) to meet the demands of industries who manage remote work in the field or harsh manufacturing environments.
“With this new device and platform, we were able to start completely fresh with what a mobile user is asking for in a work management application,” said Mick Milnark, Blue Dot Co-Founder. “And the technicians and engineers all want speed, simplicity, and fewer distractions. So we started with this user experience in mind, and not enterprise software screens, as the basis for this application.” Blue Dot even created an early adopter program where two selected global customers in vastly distinct industries provided critical feedback during the development cycles on usability of the application, durability of the iPad device in their unique industrial settings, and integration of the application with their core enterprise applications and strategies. These customers have already begun the rollout of the application in their organizations.
The application is available through Blue Dot in a stand-alone mode requiring integration with your applicable ERP/EAM/CMMS systems or purchased with a pre-packaged adapter for Infor10 EAM. Shortly, Blue Dot will be delivering the Work Management solution for Apple’s iPhone.
