The examples below show that DataSplice is the most flexible tool available for creating solutions that are guaranteed to succeed.
The Flexibility to Work the Way You Want:
Online -or- Offline!
- 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 provides the simplest data entry process possible.
Example: Working with one of our utility customers, we created created a Substation Maintenance Management mobile data collection solution that combines condition monitoring and location attributes. Substation inspectors now simply enter the specific substation and are presented an editable list of all the measurement points and location attribute values they need to record. This module reduced data capture time by 43%.
- 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.
Example: One of our utility customers, a Transmission and Distribution concern, assigns all activity for each Substation to a specific technician. Based on the user's login all data associated with the user's assigned list of substations 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. Our remote client is designed to display properly on any screen size, from handhelds to desktop monitors.
- 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.
Example: A food manufacturing customer required the ability to return inventory items to closed work orders. The standard MAXIMO (mobile or desktop) 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.
Example: 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.
Mobile Bar Code Printing from Maximo: DataSplice users also can print bar code labels on a networked or mobile 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.
Example: A manufacturing customer with an 802.11b wireless infrastructure requires only 19 concurrent licenses for 43 technicians working 3 shifts.
- 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 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.
