Improve Efficiency with Mobile Access to Your Engineering Information
We're pleased to share the following blog from our partner Accruent.
Increasingly, more and more professionals in the construction industry are relying primarily on their mobile devices to complete their jobs.
With the global mobile workforce expected to increase from 38.8% to 42.5% or 1.87 billion people by 2022*, organisations are moving to the cloud to ensure that they can access their information at any time; not just when employees are in the office.
We’ve all experienced the following scenario: it’s 4:00pm and an employee is out of the office, but they must add critical comments to a document before a 5:00 pm deadline to ensure that a contractor can access it in the morning. The deadline is non-negotiable and if not met, it will cause the project to be delayed.
Alternatively, an employee is at an off-site meeting all day without access to their computer. A co-worker calls for approval to changes within a document. The updated document must be shared with the maintenance team to complete three important work orders. Without access to the engineering document management system via their phone, they must wait until they can access their computer to approve the changes, creating a backlog of work for maintenance.
Both these scenarios are frustrating but can be avoided with a mobile solution in place. Meridian Mobile is an Accruent solution dedicated to helping facilitate the process that engineering asset information demands. With a solution that ensures access to internal documents at any time, organisations can expedite project delivery confidently and increase operational efficiency.
With Meridian Mobile, users can stay informed, compliant, and in control of their engineering asset information while they are away from their desks. With the ability to view and approve asset documents from their iOS, Android, Windows phones or tablets, users can take swift action on their workflow tasks from anywhere at any time.
The restraints of a non-cloud based solution are no longer viable for an organisation that is dedicated to fulfilling their project needs efficiently. Using a mobile solution provides the flexibility to complete an engineering project on time and on budget.
