ERP in your technician’s pocket

Field and plant apps read and write direct to NetSuite

Calendar, timekeeping, parts management, HS&W, case reporting, machine knowledge, and service order management in one application, one ERP. Deploy one application only for all your maintenance and service staff.

Planner Board communicates to field and plant via push

Planners back at the office receive instant communication with staff online in the field or the plant floor. No stale data and no need to refresh. Understand maintenance, service, rental, and machine status at a distance and at a glance thanks to push.

BI from the perspective of the asset or service manager

Asset, rental, and service managers may report on their department’s performance using the very same GL-impact values that NetSuite uses when it runs its own financial reporting. No estimated or surrogate calculations telling another story.

Planners in the office communicate with foremen and technicians in the field, or mechanics and engineers on the plant floor, via push messages. Communication is instantaneous and traceable for anyone with NetSuite access.
