GTC’s Mobile Informer Solution
Why did GTC choose Interloc’s Mobile Informer for Maximo solution? They knew that Mobile Informer was a native Maximo application that runs simple client-defined, native applications on either the Android or iOS platform. Having simple, native applications would provide the user acceptance required by GTC. In fact, the Mobile Informer applications are not only easy to use but they also mirror field workers’ exact processes with a familiar consumer interfaces. Given this level of familiarity, the application was not only widely accepted but it was welcomed.
Mobile Informer was also embraced by GTC’s IT staff because of its ability to leverage both the existing Maximo technical infrastructure and built in iOS device functionality, including Mail and Camera, without the need for additional hardware or duplicate development efforts. Shortly after GTC went live, the mobile application gained 100% acceptance by field workers. This group includes four operations and maintenance departments within GTC.
With Mobile Informer, GTC field workers now have instant access to all the necessary documentation to get things done, including asset and repair histories, one-line diagrams, test plans, and photos. Instant access means that they can work smarter and more efficiently.
And because Interloc Mobile Informer sits within Maximo as a native application, providing real-time updates, operates online and offline, and requires no additional middleware, GTC admin enjoy familiar administration, rapid deployment, and widespread adoption.
