DataSplice mobile technology provides a flexible platform that is capable of delivering mobile data access to field personnel for any CMMS application, including Maximo®. Every aspect of the mobile solution can be easily customized: the data and fields displayed to the user, the relationships and links between the data, and the business rules performed when information is modified.
We understand that the success of any mobile application lies in its ability to integrate with your existing business and work processes. Other mobile solutions force users to change the way they work to conform with the way the software functions. DataSplice can easily be modified to your expectations, ensuring user acceptance.
The Flexibility to Work the Way You Want
Easily Configured to Precisely Meet Your Work Processes --
Datasplice can quickly and easily be configured to provide the end-user functionality required to support your *best practice* maintenance processes. The standard off-the-shelf DataSplice interface can be modified to access multiple Maximo ® software database tables and provide the simplest data entry process possible.
Remote Users Only See the Data They Need --
The utilization of attributes and view criteria enable the DataSplice administrator to easily define the specific subsets of data available for each user, based on your exact work assignments. Based on the user's login, all data associated with the user's assigned list of tasks is automatically loaded to their mobile device.
Open Hardware Support --
DataSplice users can reliably access their data from different connectivity environments; online, offline, cradle synchronization, wireless LAN and WAN. DataSplice is compatible with all modern Windows® operating systems, including Windows Mobile 5+, Windows XP, Vista and 7. The DataSplice client is also designed to display properly on any screen size, from handhelds to desktop monitors.
For instance, field technicians download work orders to laptops from their trucks daily via a wireless LAN, then work in offline mode, and send their changes at shift end via the wireless LAN. Or, Warehouse users can sync via a doc and work offline, or in real time
Business Rule Configuration --
DataSplice also features flexible business rule emulation, via the off-the-shelf application packages that DataSplice has created to support MAXIMO® software implementations. No tables or triggers are added to the database. Maintaining and upgrading the MAXIMO® software becomes more manageable. For example, a food manufacturing customer required the ability to return inventory items to closed work orders. The standard MAXIMO® software business rules do not allow this. The DataSplice mobile application was configured to allow return of inventory items to closed work orders
Access Information From Multiple Sources --
DataSplice can access other enterprise software systems in addition to the MAXIMO® software application from the same mobile device handheld client. A business process at a large electric utility requires receiving Inventory items into the ERP system, but counting and issuing the items from MAXIMO® software. DataSplice provides a single handheld interface to accomplish both requirements.
Barcode Scanning and Printing Support --
The DataSplice Remote Client has been designed to work with most available handheld scanning systems, making data input easier and more reliable for mobile users. DataSplice users also can print bar code labels on a networked printer directly from the mobile device.
Total Cost of Ownership
Simple Licensing --
Utilization of concurrent use licenses greatly reduces licensing cost in facilities with wireless LANs and where multiple shifts are deployed. A manufacturing customer with an 802.11b wireless infrastructure requires only 19 concurrent licenses for 43 technicians.
Rapid Implementation --
DataSplice solutions are specifically designed to help you implement mobile applications quickly and efficiently to get your staff mobile. The "DataSplice Administration Client":../DataSplice/AdminClient enables simple and effective implementation of mobile solutions. No advanced programming skills are required to administrate DataSplice and administrators do not need to rewrite scripts or code to make changes or enhancements. A utility group configured and deployed their test *Substation Maintenance Management* mobile solution in about 2 hours during the training class. "We actually built the production solution before the end of our training!" commented one of the users.
Automatic Handheld Configuration and Provisioning --
On-going remote user software and mobile device support is provided by DataSplice "Windmill":../DataSplice/Windmill enables your IT team to efficiently manage hundreds of mobile devices and their associated functionality. Software updates and hardware configurations are delivered automatically to the mobile end-users.
