To meet the client's requirements, our development team created a Custom Mobile App to be used on both iOS and Android platforms. The required app integration with SAP was achieved by managing assets and maintenance calls more efficiently. The Custom Mobile App was developed with a user-friendly interface that allowed the service engineer to easily access all necessary functions.
• A secure connection was established between the Custom Mobile App and SAP to synchronize asset and maintenance data in real time.
• Relevant information was retrieved from SAP, including asset details, work orders, service history, and spare parts inventory.
The QR code scanner feature allowed assets to be easily identified, and maintenance calls can be logged quickly and efficiently.
Asset Management Functionality:
• The device's camera was utilized to scan QR codes on assets, quickly retrieving asset information and service history from SAP.
• Asset inspections were enabled, allowing the LLT to perform inspections, record observations, and generate comprehensive inspection reports.
• Maintenance requests were logged and their progress was tracked in real time, ensuring prompt resolution of issues.
• The spare parts inventory was accessed to check availability and order necessary parts for maintenance tasks.
In addition, the LLT was able to use the Custom Mobile App to perform asset inspections and log calls when necessary, and keep track of maintenance requests.
Landlord Team (LLT) Capabilities:
• Asset Inspections: The Custom Mobile App functionality empowered the LLT to conduct inspections, capture asset conditions, identify maintenance needs, and schedule repairs if necessary.
• Call Logging: Logging maintenance calls, and ensuring all issues are documented and resolved promptly was easy with the call log functionality
• Task Assignment: The LLT could now assign maintenance tasks to service engineers based on their availability, expertise, and proximity to the assets.
Service Engineer Capabilities:
• Work Orders: Service engineers were provided with a clear overview of assigned work orders, including task details, location, and asset information.
• Task Tracking: This functionality allowed service engineers to easily update the status of their tasks, record work performed, and track time spent on each task.
One of the key features of the Custom Mobile App was the ability for customers to sign off on completed work and provide a survey. This ensured that the customers were satisfied with the work that had been done and gave the service engineer valuable feedback.
• Work Request Submission: Customers were able to submit maintenance requests directly through the Custom Mobile App, providing essential details and attaching relevant media.
• Real-time updates were provided to customers about the progress of their maintenance requests, including the estimated arrival time of service engineers.
• Work Sign-Off and Surveys: Customers were able to sign off on completed work, ensuring transparency and accountability. They were able to share feedback through surveys to continuously improve service quality.
