Be There. Even When You’re Not

                If the past year has taught us anything, it is to expect the unexpected.  From remote work to lack of toilet paper, 2020 has certainly been full of surprises.  As things slowly begin to get back to normal it’s important not to forget some of the lessons we’ve learned in the past year.  With the CHAMPS Mobile app, you can manage your operations and maintenance work from anywhere!

Keep your Distance

                It’s all fun and games until everyone’s on lockdown again.  The rules and regulations vary not only by region, but by state, city, even down to individual corporations.  With countless differences in legislature, you need a CMMS solution that will work from anywhere, at any time, and allows for CDC guidelines.  CHAMPS Mobile is that solution.  From work orders to inventory, monitor all enterprise asset activities from your phone.

                Since most maintenance jobs still need to be done in person, mobile allows all the information about the daily tasks to be accessed from their phones.  This allows information from work orders to be passed along without the need for face-to-face interaction.  

                Whatever your reason for wanting to enforce social distancing, it does not matter.  CHAMPS Mobile is equipped to offer the best, most immersive experience all from the palm of your hand.  So whether you’re avoiding germs, or simply want your maintenance team to have more autonomy, CHAMPS has you covered.

But we Already Have CMMS. Do we Really NEED Mobile?

                Short answer: yes.  Unless you want decreased efficiency and more downtime.  Our CMMS is superior as a standalone product, but it’s even more impressive when combined with our Mobile Module.  Maintenance teams are very busy.  They don’t have time to sit at the office all day.  When they’re far from the workspace they are unable to access work orders and other requests.  This wastes countless amounts of time and money.

                If you work in an environment that relies heavily on machinery, you understand how much goes into the upkeep of those assets.  If one piece of equipment has scheduled maintenance, it can be difficult (or impossible) to keep production moving.  More often than not, the performance of one machine has a lot to do with the performance of others.  They are all interconnected in some way.  There will always be downtime, as routine maintenance is necessary for safety, but with CHAMPS Mobile, that downtime can be drastically reduced.

                If your equipment has scheduled, routine maintenance throughout the year, CHAMPS can optimize that scheduling in the most efficient way possible.  That could be anything from combining multiple maintenance tasks in one day, or viewing singular worker’s assignments for the day.  The maintenance tasks are assigned strategically in a manner that allows employees to be given tasks that are aligned with their strengths.  There is flexibility in this system in cases of unplanned maintenance, or absent employees.  You won’t be the one scrambling to schedule new maintenance or In these unexpected situations CHAMPS has automatic rescheduling capabilities that alerts mobile users of the new changes or updates. That means less downtime, and more focus on what your business does best.

                Picture this: a member of your team is out preforming routine maintenance on a piece of equipment.  All of a sudden, the air conditioning goes out on the other side of the building.  If the maintenance team were equipped with mobile software, the team member could easily have seen the request while he was performing the routine maintenance, and he could have fixed it while out.  If your team did not use mobile, then the maintenance crew would have to go back to their workspace without knowledge of the air conditioning problem until they checked their work missed requests.  While this may not seem like too much of a problem, if this reoccurs over a long stretch, the amount of wasted time can be detrimental to your ROI. 

Now More Convenient than Ever

                There is a myriad of features CHAMPS mobile can offer, but it would take too long to list them all out.  Besides, we know you only care about one thing: ease.  We offer training for both regular CMMS and CHAMPS Mobile, but don’t worry, it won’t take you too long to get the hang of them.  Once you actually implement CHAMPS Mobile you’ll be able to record information like never before. 

                Instead of filling out a written request, you can fill in the details with media!  Attachments are compatible with the app and allow for more detailed information.  A picture or video could even be added to the report when a description isn’t cutting it. 

We Get It. Mobile CMMS Saves Time and Money.  What Else Can It Do?

                We thought you’d never ask!  With CHAMPS Mobile you can do anything from approving work orders to submitting timecards!  However, one of our standout features would be offline capabilities.  If your team is working in an area with limited internet capacity, they would still be able to access work papers and other documents.  This is far more convenient than carrying around loose papers and files that could easily get mixed up. 

                Another unique feature of our mobile app is geotagging.  This allows users to report exact location of any area that needs to be worked on with just a snapshot from their phone.  The CHAMPS Mobile app is then able to locate and analyze your data.  There is no confusion when it comes to what area the report is based upon.

                Perhaps one of the most convenient features of CHAMPS Mobile is the scanning feature within the app.  You can now simply scan the barcode on a piece of equipment with your phone and the entire maintenance history will appear right at your fingertips.  No need to look through countless files of paperwork for a report anymore.  Anything on the machine from work orders to its entire maintenance history can be found once scanned.

                Though not technically a feature (we like to think of it as a perk), the UI is extremely user friendly.  We find that keeping things simple actually helps you get the most out of the Mobile experience.  Why crowd your phone with things that you’ll never use?  The features we decided to put on the app are the ones that make sense for mobile. 

What Are You Waiting For?

                The only way you’ll be able to appreciate it is to try CHAMPS CMMS Mobile for yourself.  Many of CHAMPS customers opt in for the Mobile module  because it is  effective, efficient, and convenient.  In this unpredictable world, your maintenance team should have a CMMS solution they can rely on.  And that team should have the capabilities to do their job wherever it may be located.
