Maintenance by its very nature is a mobile function, since equipment, facilities, and fleets tend to be distributed across one or multiple sites. Maintenance technicians and engineers should have ready access to data and be able to enter critical information at the drop of a hat. To protect data integrity, workers should be able to perform work and verify records without carrying around paper or returning to desktop computers for data entry.
VIZIYA WorkAlign® Mobile is designed specifically to meet the unique mobile requirements of maintenance organizations with remote work sites and multiple field workers. WorkAlign® Mobile improves the quality and timeliness of maintenance. All data is captured at the source, ensuring completeness for compliance reporting. Asset availability is improved due to the timeliness and accuracy of work order notifications and confirmations.
WorkAlign® Mobile customers experience additional benefits such as:
Several companies have specifically benefited from VIZIYA’s WorkAlign® Mobile.
Alcoa, a global industry leader in bauxite, alumina and aluminum products, was looking to replace their homegrown solutions as they were not adaptable or maintainable across their global company. They needed an out-of-the-box mobile solution that could align multiple sites under the same system and improve their data capturing capabilities. Furthermore, Alcoa needed a software solution that would maximize their resource optimization and make their maintenance team more efficient.
With VIZIYA WorkAlign® Mobile, Alcoa has been able to increase their resource efficiency and optimization. They have cut the time it takes to complete an emergency work order from 20 minutes to 8 minutes; a total savings of 12 minutes per emergency work order. This time savings is substantial when you consider that some Alcoa sites face up to 70+ emergency work orders per day. As a result, Alcoa can better utilize their technicians and are able to dedicate more time to other projects.
Alcoa maintenance teams have been able to increase the quality and reliability of their data withWorkAlign® Mobile. Maintenance technicians can now complete work orders and enter essential work order information immediately after work has been concluded. This cuts down on mistakes as technicians no longer have to wait to enter work order details when they are back in the office.

PotashCorp, the world’s largest fertilizer company, had a goal to align processes, consolidate spending and improve data analytics to promote continuous improvement. Additionally, PotashCorp needed a solution that worked with their existing Oracle EAM system.
PotashCorp selected VIZIYA WorkAlign® Mobile based on its unmatched functionality including disconnected mode, bar-coding, and workflows for both maintenance and inventory management. PotashCorp needed the ability to do mobile maintenance and mobile supply chain, as well as barcode reading.
Multiple teams from PotashCorp’s maintenance department benefited from the implementation of Viziya’s WorkAlign® Mobile. With WorkAlign® Mobile, planners are able to plan work directly on the job site in either a disconnected or connected manner. They are able to take pictures, detail the issues, and save an estimated 30 minutes per work order in the field. In addition, warehouse personnel can perform issues, receipts, transfers, and counts away from their computer and closer to their inventory. Supervisors are able to add unplanned parts and complete the parts request on-site. Supervisors are also able to complete work orders on the tablet.

A Mobile solution should be a critical component of every Asset Management strategy. Without mobility, maintenance teams are disconnected from their EAM and as a result, the organization misses out on opportunities for critical asset analysis and suffers from ineffective and inefficient work and untrustworthy and valueless data. Mobility gives your maintenance teams undeniable confidence in your data.
