Mobilizing Your Maintenance Management Workforce to Minimize Downtime
With companies across vertical industries seeking predictive maintenance to minimize costly machine and production downtime in industrial manufacturing, interest in enabling a mobile workforce is climbing quickly.
Providing maintenance staff access to your data from a smartphone or tablet lets them stay on top of issues at any time of day, from any location. The difference between expensive problems and smooth maintenance resolution can be just a matter of minutes.
In fact, the average cost of downtime across all businesses is roughly $260,000 per hour. That’s according to Aberdeen Group, a research and consulting firm.
The answer? Provide your maintenance management staff the ability to remotely connect to their company’s operation management software system from a mobile device. This leverages skilled human assets that would otherwise be limited to a specific plant location.
Give your workforce full mobility with an asset management system that can be accessed on any mobile device both online and offline. Manufacturers should see the value and flexibility of making more efficient use of their skilled employees.
