Atlanta, GA, January 25, 2016–AssetOptics, a leader in cloud-based CMMS/EAM solutions, today announced the release of AssetOptics Facilities, Equipment and Fleet Maintenance for Salesforce version 2.9 (v2.9). The release offers four significant new features that will further increase operating efficiency and streamline scheduling, tracking and updating maintenance information in the system.
“With the exception of serialized parts tracking, our last update was about ‘under the covers’ tweaks,” said AssetOptics Founder Mike Edwards. “With the release of v2.9, we focused on user productivity improvements, and I believe our customers and their personnel will appreciate the difference, right away.”
- Preventive Maintenance (PM) Group Scheduling: Users will now be able to set up, with a single operation, maintenance schedules containing multiple intervals from monthly to quarterly to semi-annual, and further. Because the schedules follow a hierarchal system, longer-interval schedules will supersede shorter ones (e.g. 24-month will supplant 12-month), reducing the number of work orders and eliminating the need to manually consolidate or reschedule redundant work orders to avoid work duplication. Furthermore, date-based scheduling will enable users to select specific dates each month, or specific weekdays or weekends, on which they wish a maintenance event to fall.
- PM Schedule Revision Tracking: Now, users can track the revision history of a PM Schedule, seeing how many times any user has modified or updated the schedule and route the changes for approval. This feature strengthens change management and is highly valuable for regulatory reporting.
- Update Geo-Locations: Using a mobile device equipped with the AssetOptics mobile application, users can now update the geo-location of an asset tag or a work order using a Mobile Quick Action ‘Update Geo Location’ feature without logging into the GIS platform.
- Mass Receive Purchase Order “Miscellaneous Costs”: When the Purchase Order (PO) main detail page contains multiple miscellaneous cost lines, users will be able to receive them as a group rather than as individual lines, promoting greater user productivity during the creation of Services receipts.
