Mobile maintenance solution for utilities

mobileX-MIP for Field Service is a mobile software solution for maintenance and network expansion by utilities. Technicians get their jobs on their mobile device. They can access job data in backend systems, create their feedback reports and forward for further processing to the back-office.

Features

  •  

    Mobile order processing

    With mobileX-MIP for Field Service, the technician receives orders directly on the mobile device. Even in dead zones it retains all the information such as messages, documents or usage history. The mobile solution automatically synchronizes application data and technical feedback to the backend system.

  •  

    Intelligent form solution

    With the Dynamic Forms1 extension, network operators / utilities can replace large numbers of existing paper forms with a digital version. The range of possible applications is extensive, including:

    • Legally mandated forms
    • Entry of the system status to be used for status-oriented maintenance
    • Service logs

    mobileX-MIP for Field Service not only creates the electronic version as a PDF document (including signature), it also forwards all data to the back office (such as measurement documents for the technical object in SAP PM).

  •  

    View system structures on mobile devices

    Using mobileX-MIP for Field Service, the technician can access the system structure while off-line (such as technical objects from SAP PM). For each device (such as equipment / technical location from SAP PM) the mobile solution shows the master data and additional data (such as classification from SAP). 

  •  

    Quality as you type

    Data collected such as measurement documents are verified directly for their plausibility when entering. The criteria for this are transferred from SAP PM or SAP CS to the mobile device and used for validation.

  •  

    Condition-based maintenance

    With mobileX-MIP for Field Service, the technician enters the system status on-site. The data is then returned to the back end (such as SAP PM measurement documents) so that subsequent processes (such as extension of maintenance cycles) can be initiated. mobileX-MIP for Field Service supplies all necessary status data for condition-based maintenance.

  •  

    Controlled data reconciliation: mobileX release monitor

    The mobileX release monitor3 allows supervisors to check the incoming job completion confirmations from technicians before posting them in SAP. The release monitor separates out the incoming completion confirmations for manual checks using defined criteria. This saves office-based staff from having to make time-consuming reverse postings in SAP.
