The term “mobile” has generated a lot of buzz at JD Edwards conferences for several years. Defining a mobile strategy for your JD Edwards system is necessary to realizing the full benefit of your ERP.
These mobile strategies have two important considerations:
1. As technology advances, you expect the freedom to perform your jobs with more and more mobility.
Every customer has two kinds of JD Edwards users, “regular users” and “occasional users.”
Regular users include accounting, sales, and HR departments, and use JD Edwards every day to do your jobs.
Occasional users include senior managers approving purchase requisitions, or transaction users, and more and more frequently you perform your jobs away from your desks.
Whether you are a regular or occasional JD Edwards user, establishing a mobile strategy for your JD Edwards applications is essential for you to be able to perform your job easily wherever you may be operating in the field.
2. Secondly, rather than developing its own out-of-the-box mobile applications, JD Edwards now prefers to encourage customer-developed mobile applications. It’s been our experience that the majority of customers may not have development resources in-house to solve this problem.
We’ve listened carefully to your concerns. To support this ever-growing need, AMS has deployed mobile applications for our JD Edwards customers.
Rather than proprietary scripting running on expensive specialty devices, our applications run on a variety of operating systems, the most common are the Apple iOS and Android OS, and both run on a variety of hardware.
These consumer devices are less expensive and are enhanced by a variety of accessories including multi-device charging cradles and kiosk stands, allowing you to mount a tablet on the production floor, for example, so people can log work requests convenient to where you are working.
Offline is just fine with AMS mobile applications.
We know exactly what you need to do your job for maintenance and storeroom operations in JD Edwards. This has been our focus and our specialty for 25 years. We know your precise pain points and provide real solutions.
Maintenance and operations users need to access JD Edwards where you are doing your job, which is out and about in the field, at a job site, or out in the plant.
These areas may not have Wi-Fi or cellular coverage, so our starting point is with a disconnected mobile application.
With AMS mobile applications, you can work offline and automatically sync your work to JD Edwards when the device connection is reliable.
AMS provides the right tool for the right job.
A mobile application is a tool to help you do your job. If it’s frustrating, hard to use and hinders you from doing your job, you’re going to abandon it and relegate the tool to the bottom of the toolbox.
AMS supports asset intensive industries, such as maintenance, procurement and storeroom operations.
