“Digitalization of the frontline workforce, particularly when it comes to mobility, is a strong focus area today as customers look to push more decision making at the edge. Traditional point solutions have not kept pace with emerging requirements,” said Ram Ramasamy of Frost & Sullivan. “Webalo brings in unique differentiation through their new SAP PM Framework and their track record in driving asset maintenance and optimization strategies across industrial and energy companies. Their new framework offers much needed mobile capabilities for plant and field maintenance teams using SAP’s Plant Maintenance module.”

Webalo for SAP PM mobilizes maintenance requests, work orders, and standard operating procedures, orchestrates the workflow steps with notifications and task management, and enables all jobs to be allocated, executed, and closed directly through the mobile devices of the workforce, without the need for workers to manage paper or log-in and interact with SAP directly. Webalo for SAP PM also provides detailed reporting of all the key data points that are captured by the maintenance teams on their mobile devices, including user information, work order status, and time and process variables, enabling management to track all maintenance activities in real time.

Webalo for SAP PM runs natively on Android and iOS smartphones and tablets. Location-based services, and integration with the device camera, supports barcode scanning for rapid equipment identification and picture capture for fault identification. Off-line mode ensures that work can continue in remote parts of the plant, or the field, where network connectivity is not available, and Webalo’s support of Android and iOS notification and messaging services means that new work orders for maintenance requests are immediately routed to maintenance team members who are automatically notified of each new job.
