New mobile app platform helps organizations meet mobile app demand
and drives greater collaboration and productivity for capital project
ANAHEIM, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, from its annual User Conference at HxGN
LIVE, EcoSys is announcing the availability of the EcoSys Mobile App
Platform. EcoSys mobile apps interact with the EcoSys EPC project
controls web platform and provide a native mobile experience enabling
enhanced collaboration and information visibility for customers
delivering capital projects.
Industry analysts forecast that by the end of 2017, market demand for
enterprise mobile app development services will grow at least five times
faster than internal IT organizations’ capacity to deliver them.¹ Mobile
app development can be a huge burden on IT teams, yet these apps are
critical to an organization’s ability to remain competitive – future
gains in worker productivity will stem in large part from enterprise
mobility, and data analytics tied to mobile apps will enable better
business decisions. Tools that can produce apps more easily and rapidly
are crucial for enterprises to meet demand and remain competitive.
The EcoSys Mobile App Platform includes 3 new mobile apps, as well as an
open app platform with which customers can easily configure their own
mobile apps. The apps are created without any IT programming and once
installed on mobile devices, will self-update automatically as new
configuration is published. They offer rapid and easy deployment,
reducing implementation time from months to days.
“Effective project delivery requires the coordination of complex tasks
by many disciplines and stakeholders across a potentially wide
geography,” said Javier Sloninsky, CEO of EcoSys. “The EcoSys mobile app
platform offers organizations with a rapid path to real-time
collaboration and enhanced information visibility, allowing project
teams to benefit from the latest technology innovations.”
EcoSys mobile apps help break down the barriers of efficient project
collaboration — whether it’s a contractor raising an issue to the
project team, a construction supervisor reviewing and approving that
day’s progress, a project controls analyst assessing the impact of a
change, or an executive reviewing the status of their project portfolio
while traveling. Disconnected processes are integrated, leading to
increased productivity, better predictive analysis capabilities and
faster corrective actions.
The EcoSys Mobile App Platform’s 3 Out of the Box Apps include:
Progress Reporting: Enables users to record project
progress in real-time and submit this information to supervisors for
review and approval. Progress can be recorded in various methods,
based on the type of work being executed. This app eliminates the need
for paper-based field reporting processes and promotes improved
efficiency by providing a user-friendly experience for all disciplines.
Change Management: This app allows users to easily raise
project change requests as well as review and approve changes that are
in their court. It provides an increased level of efficiency and
visibility through the change management lifecycle, and minimizes
delays inherent on projects.
Issues Tracker: This app empowers any individual to quickly and
easily raise issues identified while working on a project. It
enables users to report potential problems and concerns through text
and/or photos, record updates, and also allows managers to review and
promote submitted issues.
