Our Maximo assessments look at your implementation as a whole – taking into account your as-is processes and industry best practices to determine the desired to-be processes. Interloc engages Maximo certified consultants who have experience in your industry so you get the greatest return from your Maximo assessment.
Interloc has performed hundreds of Maximo engagements. Typically, we start our engagements by assessing your current processes to determine what the current process is, what the desired outcome is, and where the gaps are. We are committed to staying current not only with Maximo and compatible products and technologies, but also with global technology as a whole. Maximo business assessments can be performed for any reason, including new implementations, upgrades, reimplementation, integrations, reports, calibration, linear, etc.

If you are considering a mobile solution, Interloc can assist by performing an assessment for mobility use including your business requirements as well as your IT organization's technical requirements, such as security.
A thorough technical assessment is important to your mobile success as mobile access security will depend on the solution selected. For example, assuming that the solution communicates to Maximo via web service calls, SSL should be implemented at a minimum. Interloc will help our clients determine the most secure measures based on their currently established IT policies and procedures.
Interloc has developed the award-winning, industry recognized Mobile Informer solution. Interloc Mobile Informer applications mirror field workers' exact processes on the smart devices they want with performance they need — providing your business with 100% field user acceptance. Mobile Informer can bring GPS/GIS, RFID, barcode, ACM, linear, calibration, transportation or any Maximo process to your smart device.
There’s a lot more to your Maximo licenses than just paying an annual customer support plan fee.
If you don’t know how many licenses you have, what types of licenses they are, or what quantities of what types of Maximo licenses you need, you risk being non-compliant with your IPLA (IBM Program License Agreement).
