Many organizations use Maximo as the system of record for their assets. The information stored in Maximo acts as the single-source-of-truth and must be carefully maintained for the integrity of the organization’s assets. This can present a problem if Maximo is not closely integrated with the organization’s other enterprise systems, especially with the GIS. All relevant data about an asset needs to make it into Maximo to be properly recorded, but also needs to be able to be extracted from Maximo and used in the various business applications used in daily operations.
Using the power of ArcGIS, many organizations have built mapping applications to serve a number of functions. By displaying their assets on a map, users can easily visualize their assets in relation to each other and create automated workflows to interact with their asset data from a centralized user experience.
Here are a few of the key reasons why asset managers love combining ArcGIS and Maximo with Geocortex:
Create work orders without leaving your web mapping app. Using Geocortex workflow technology integrated with Maximo, users can request maintenance or other work by simply clicking an asset on the map and filling out a form inside ArcGIS. This greatly reduces the amount of time and overhead spent creating work orders and tracking work in the field.
Visualize and interact with asset management data in a single app. With applications that connect directly to Maximo, users can pull up information from Maximo within a web map. Clicking an asset on the map allows users to instantly see relevant information about that asset from Maximo. Conversely, Maximo users can launch the GIS and automatically zoom to the relevant asset on the map. This creates efficiencies on both ends as users do not have to navigate two separate systems.
Eliminate duplicate data entry. By integrating Maximo and Geocortex, asset information – such as asset condition, last inspection date, installation date, etc. – can be seamlessly passed between the two. If an asset is updated in Maximo or in the GIS, changes will be reflected in the other system as well (along with any other enterprise systems you may choose to integrate with!). No more time wasted copying updates between systems to avoid inconsistent records.
View asset history on a map. Using the power of an integrated Maximo solution, users in the field or back in the office can click on an asset on the map and reference historical data to learn everything they need to know to do their jobs. Make your staff’s lives easier by ensuring they always have the proper context.
