MAINTENANCE Experts has announced the release of HandiMEX, a suite of programs that run on handheld devices, making the entry of data into MEX, easier.
MEX computerised maintenance management software is traditionally used to increase plant availability, lower operating costs, prolong asset life and improve control of preventative maintenance schedules.
It allows users to quickly retrieve vital data and statistics on their maintenance operation and ensures they know what work is being done, when, and by whom.
HandiMEX is a simple application that works by transferring required data from MEX into a handheld device. This data is then taken into the field and actioned.
Once the work is completed, all of the updated data is transferred back into MEX, eliminating the need for data entry.
There are four programs available and these include:
* Store issues - the issue and return of items from the store including a barcode option.
* Equipment readings - the entry of new readings for equipment. For example, the odometer or hourmeter reading of any piece of equipment.
* Ad hoc work order - add and close a work order whilst on the job. This greatly reduces discrepancy in the work that is really done versus what goes on the timecards that people fill in.
* Stocktake - perform a stocktake for a selected region of the store including a barcode option.
HandiMEX will work on any Palm device operating with Palm OS 2 and higher and any Windows CE device. MEX V10 is required to utilise the product.
