How Mobility Solutions Improve Up-time for Every ERP

In today’s rapidly changing economic environment, companies around the globe have been forced to implement mobility solutions to maximize their production output. Ensuring that an organization is creating an environment that supports positive levels of productivity via substantial amounts of up-time for systems like SAP, Oracle and other ERPs is essential to fulfill the demand for productivity.

Up-time is a measure that tells you about a machine’s working and production duration. As one of the major performance indicators, it determines how efficiently a company is accomplishing this task.

All of this also has to be done while complying with environment, health, and safety regulations. 

Unfortunately, many studies have demonstrated that many companies do not have the strongest handle on these numbers.

Here are some factors that may be diminishing your company’s up-time:
  • Ineffective scheduling of production processes.
  • Asset breakdown.
    Shortage of qualified personnel.
    Loss of production components, stemming from inefficiencies in the supply chain.

These issues not only cut into up-time, but also affect a company’s bottom line - pulling it down quickly.

Fortunately, mobile solutions for SAP ERP such as EdgeReady Cloud can provide a clear solution for this issue. Mobility solutions should positively impact the up-time of any core business operation.

What are Mobility Solutions?

Mobility solutions (or in this case enterprise mobility solutions) can be classified as business mobility that allows scalable business models to utilize personal devices, such as laptops, iPad, tablets, and other mobile devices to make use of cloud technology for data access.

VMware further details mobility for enterprise as, “...recognizing the need for greater agility brought on by a shift from the traditional central office business model.”

Cloud solutions that offer rapid application development provide users from any business system like SAP or Oracle, to build an optimized and modernized approach to data management and asset tracking.

Here are some ways in which mobility solutions, like EdgeReady Cloud, can help any organization increase uptime:
  • Sales: Mobility solutions like EdgeReady Cloud, and its database of scalable apps, can help sales divisions by providing real-time data to personnel, allowing them to configure complex configurations in minutes. Sales teams can also determine inventory levels and pricing configurations rapidly by utilizing quickly built applications that integrate with any business system; such as SAP, Oracle, Microsoft Dynamics and other legacy ERPs and databases. Providing sales teams with instant access to customer or prospect data not only shortens the sales cycle, but can also increase win rates. 

  • Operations: Mobile solutions for SAP ERP can also help capture accurate, real-time data from the most remote locations - thus, providing enhanced field-service operations. This ability allows companies to create positive strides towards a stronger customer service approach and also allows employees to make more informed decisions.

  • Finances: Rapid application development solutions, like EdgeReady Cloud, also help improve cash flow due to allowing for accurate forecasting - providing remote personnel with the ability to capture and deliver real-time data. Some mobility solutions offer offline capabilities that can assist in this as well. Real-time approval methods also help speed up business processes across an entire organization, positively impacting any company’s bottom line.

  • Customer Experience. Mobility solutions also improve the rate of satisfied customers, as it allows users to reach customers directly at the point of sale. This enables users to personalize their customer’s buying experience each time they interact with anyone.
