Incident alerting and service dispatching on the shop floor
“We are firefighters. This system keeps us going.”
John Magnet, Factory Automation Lead
I start my shift with a simple punch in on my mobile phone. Now I get machine alerts and maintenance jobs directly and in real-time – wherever I am on the plant floor.
On my mobile phone I have a full overview on all incidents and maintenance jobs and who of my team is busy and is handling what.
Via push, text or voice call I get machine alerts and maintenance jobs on my mobile in real-time and with all information I need. And I don’t have to stay in the control room.
What is the current status? Are all my tools up and running? The timeline provides a fast overview
Service dispatching is automated and I receive my maintenance jobs directly on my mobile app. With the mobile app I also have access to all experts and managers and it is super easy to set up a chat or conference call.
Every Wednesday we do an emergency exercise. Everyone needs to assemble and evacuate and I can use automated call-outs to alert my team, see that they respond and ensure they are safe.
