The mobile app that your mechanics have been using for years is getting an upgrade to allow your equipment managers to go mobile as well.
The Equipment360 Mobile App, formerly Equipment360 Mobile Mechanic, now allows equipment managers and shop foremen to manage mechanics and shop work orders right from their iPads.
In addition to the mechanic features already available, shop managers and foremen will now be able to create and assign work orders, review and approve time cards, manage alerts, view equipment details, and schedule mechanics.
Managers will have a dashboard screen in the app that will give them access to all workflows and functionality. The dashboard will list metrics to show which work orders are still open, which have been set to complete but still need to be reviewed and closed, and which alerts still need to be reviewed.
“This is part of our ongoing effort to help our customers go mobile at work,” Equipment360 Product Manager Kyle Cain said. “The features that are in the manager system on the desktop have just been moved over to the manager platform in the app. There are plenty of shop foremen who are away from their desks constantly, turning wrenches or doing other work. But they still need to approve time and manage work orders in Equipment360.”
Mechanics will also get a few new features to add to their already robust access in the mobile app. Mechanics can now see who is assigned to a work order -- even if it isn’t them. We’ve also added a corrective description box that will allow you to address how you fixed an issue. This is in addition to the cause and complaint (work order tags) features that already existed.
To provide your shop managers with the Equipment360 Mobile App, simply visit HCSS Credentials and check the Equipment360 Mobile App box. Each manager user will have his own subscription. Mechanics who already used the mobile app will see no changes to their subscription.
