Boosting Field Workforce Utilization with a Connected Worker Solution

Boosting Field Workforce Utilization with a Connected Worker Solution

Industrial plants and manufacturing facilities are suffering from a lack of collaboration between the maintenance department and the spare parts warehouse. This deficiency can result from reliance on inefficient manual data-sharing processes or the use of incompatible mobile frontline worker applications. Can an integrated connected worker solution offer an answer while raising productivity and field workforce utilization?  

What Is a Connected Worker Solution?

Frontline, connected workers utilize mobile technology to accomplish data gathering and sharing faster, better, cheaper, and safer than traditional manual processes. These can include:

  • Smartphones
  • Tablets
  • Wearables
  • Drones

A connected worker solution uses integrated mobile technology to increase cross-departmental cooperation, such as between the maintenance and spare parts warehouse. It can provide:

  • Greater operational visibility throughout an enterprise
  • Insight into the potential cause of a problem and its effects
  • A way to assign maintenance resources and check spare part availability   
  • Improved collaboration to undertake recommended actions in a timely fashion
