Mobile Field Workers Demanding Technology Options
With the increased popularity of iPad, Android and other systems, companies are seizing the opportunity to affordably “go mobile”. Enterprise Asset Management workers in the field now have expanded choices - and they are demanding them.
DataSplice has embraced the expanding mobility trend, and has announced support for multiple platforms and devices, including Android and iOS (including iPad and iPhone) devices, as well as the new Windows RT and 8 systems. Utilizing HTML5 technologies, DataSplice’s expanded remote client provides more alternatives for EAM workers who are performing remote work for inspections, assets audits, work orders and inventory duties. One system is able to handle multiple needs within an organization, which reduces implementation, support and licensing costs.
Already known as the leading mobile software solution dedicated to IBM Maximo’s Asset Management system since 2001, the enhanced offering continues to provide online and offline functionality, while keeping its signature configurable administration tools in place: something system administrators will enjoy. The organization also boasts a decade of experience implementing mobile systems specifically for utilities, oil and gas, aerospace, defense and government entities.

Current users will notice little or no changes to their server or administration client software. The system also retains its ability to connect to complementary enterprise systems, such as HR, regulatory and financial packages.
The enhanced technology offering completes the software system that is well known for working with rugged Windows Mobile devices. While support for these industry specific devices, with their durability, ability to be read in day-light and high speed scanning devices will continue, users who choose Android and iOS devices will be able to access data while in the field, whether they are connected or disconnected.
