The SAP Work Manager rapid-deployment solution (RDS) provides a "test drive” option (a.k.a. proof of concept) that some customers recently took advantage of to experience the out-of-the-box functionality included as part of the solution. They used the RDS approach to get familiar with the technical infrastructure before implementing the solution in a production environment.
For those unfamiliar with SAP Work Manager, it is a SAP mobile app focused on Enterprise Asset Management (EAM), and it facilitates the maintenance, inspection, and repair of mission-critical assets. The SAP Work Manager RDS includes best practices and services to allow for deployment and configuration to be as predictable as possible. Let’s take a quick look at one customer’s example in terms of their main objectives, key benefits, and top achievements accomplished.
- Resolve data inaccuracies and delays in updating maintenance activities
- Access maintenance information and update maintenance activities while technicians perform their tasks offline in remote sites
- Eliminate maintenance data captured in paper forms and spreadsheets
- Ability to evaluate SAP Work Manager solution capabilities in a short period of time with a reduced cost to implement
- Option to further expand the solution footprint into a production landscape
- Allowed for a low risk and more informed decision making process in terms of how best to leverage SAP’s mobile solutions
- Provided the core user community an easy way to get familiar with both the look-and-feel and the functionality of the solution before implementing it in production
- Saved time and costs usually associated with building, planning, and implementing a mobile strategy and roadmap
