Webalo for the Frontline Workforce

Webalo, the leading platform for the Frontline WorkforceTM, recently publicized the release of Webalo for SAP PM Framework. It is much needed mobile capabilities platform in industries to maintain teams using SAP’s Plant Maintenance (PM) module. It brings digital transformation to an organization and offers the simplest solution to focus on the entire industry’s Frontline Workers. The industry is anticipated to focus on about 3.5 billion Frontline Workers in the global workforce.

Muthuraman “Ram” Ramasamy, Global Client Leader, Client Engagement, and Industrial Transformation Thought Leader at Frost & Sullivan, commented: “Digitalization of the frontline workforce, particularly when it comes to mobility, is a strong focus area today as customers look to push more decision making at the edge. Traditional point solutions have not kept pace with emerging requirements.” Further he added, “Webalo brings in unique differentiation through their new SAP PM Framework and their track record in driving asset maintenance and optimization strategies across industrial and energy companies. Their new framework offers much needed mobile capabilities for plant and field maintenance teams using SAP’s Plant Maintenance module.”

Webalo for SAP PM

Webalo for SAP PM mobilizes standard operating procedures, maintenance requests, and work orders. Also, it manages workflow steps with task management and notifications and allows all jobs to be closed, allocated, and executed directly via a mobile device of the workforce. Further, this will simplify workers’ procedures to interact with SAP instead of managing paper or log-in.

Webalo for SAP PM also offers detailed reporting of all the vital data points captured by the maintenance teams on their mobile devices, including date and time process variables, user data, and work order status. Further, it allows management to track all maintenance activities in real-time. The real-time Webalo Control Tower apps deliver operational awareness.

Webalo for SAP PM runs natively on iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. Integration with the device camera and location-based services supports barcode scanning for rapid equipment identification and picture fault identification. Further, off-line mode makes sure that work could continue in remote parts of the plant or the field where there is no network connectivity. Webalo’s support of iOS and Android notification and messaging services immediately routes maintenance team members’ maintenance requests. However, maintenance team members are notified of each new request or job.

Peter Price, Founder & CEO at Webalo, Inc., commented: “Supporting the relationships between the workforce, business processes, and enterprise assets is complex, yet critical for operations looking to optimize business operations and drive profitability.” Further, he added, “Our no-code frontline workforce software platform, with its unique, out-of-the-box, capabilities for two-way integration with enterprise and industrial software platforms such as SAP, was designed to meet the needs of the workforce and accelerate time-to-value, and our new Webalo for SAP PM Framework extends these capabilities to make it simple for engineering and maintenance organizations in industrial companies to keep their plants safe, compliant, operational, and efficient.”
