EAM360 Public Utilities Case Study

Improving public utility asset management lifecycle for a city with our mobile app

Overview

EAM360, a next-generation Mobile application for Maximo , is implemented for efficient management of a City’s utility assets and its maintenance/service related activities.

Challenges:

With paper-based processes and the delays in updating the data, the asset managers and process managers experienced critical information gaps. This also delayed the option to view critical information for days or weeks and created vulnerabilities for service compliance, asset repair and replacement. With no letup in safety & security in modernizing the field operations, the client is faced with challenges to do more with less. Some of the key challenges faced by the team were:

  • Managing huge volumes of 800K+ asset & location data from a mobile platform
  • Complying with highly secure identity, access & security standards
  • Offline access and mapping features to facilitate work in remote places
  • Adaptability of the application by a Non-tech savvy workforce

Solution Offered:

As a leading EAM mobile solution provider, we assigned multiple features and components of applications dedicated for technicians/supervisors, storekeepers and managers. This assisted them with efficiently managing Work Order, Service Requests, Locations, assets, etc across different locations from anywhere at any time. A few key solutions offered were:

  • View Work Assignments with real time notifications & route map with turn-by-turn directions.
