Unlocking the Benefits of Tracking Parts By Asset

Every organization should be tracking parts by asset, but they aren’t! Tracking parts by asset is used when you have a part that you want to know the status on, you want to be able to do work on it, you want to track its history, and you want a spare on the shelf. If this sounds like something you could be utilizing, check out this webinar. Watch now to find out more about the power behind this underutilized functionality and why your organization should implement it today.

GIS Map Work Order Dispatching

In this webinar, we dived into all things Work Order Dispatching! This functionality allows you to dispatch work to employees and crews that are located closest, geographically, to the work so that the work can be started and completed as soon as possible. Using an Esri map, dispatchers can view the location of work in relation to employees or crews in the field, prior to dispatching. Work order activities that are dispatched will be downloaded to the user’s mobile device, via the Mobile Transit app. This is base functionality and uses the GIS maps that are already configured within EAM, if you are using the GIS module, so there are no additional GIS resources needed. We discussed how dispatching a work order activity means the work is intended to start ASAP, but work order activities can be dispatched for a future date.

Watch this webinar to find out how we dive deeper into a function you can implement today!

OpenCAD: Visualizing Your Assets

​​Your EAM system tracks everything you own, lease, and rent, and makes the data visible to you in tabular form. While tabular data is effective, it can be time-consuming. To protect your bottom line, you must be able to closely manage your EAM system so you can determine the status of your assets from a number of perspectives — at a glance. In this Infor and Advoco collaborative webinar we find out how to do this utilizing OpenCAD. We also explore how OpenCAD can aid in visualizing your parts. This module can be used to help create parts from your manufacture’s part explode diagrams and the data can then be used dynamically to see what parts are needed to maintain the equipment already in the database.

GIS: Mapping Your Future

​You know what the work is, but do you know where it is? When you have geographically dispersed assets, you need to be able to easily find, track, and manage them. GIS makes this easier than ever before. In this Infor and Advoco collaborative webinar we will explore the powerful tool of GIS and see how it is used in the field by customers.

You’re Live, Now What? EAM Post Implementation & Your Continued Journey

​Are you asking yourself, we’re live, now what? Are you searching for ways to maximize your usage of Infor EAM? Figuring out what to do next and who to call when issues arise is challenging!

Infrastructure: Using Condition Assessments & Capital Planning to Facilitate Improvements

​How does your organization prioritize its infrastructure investments?  Given the enormous costs associated with infrastructure improvement, it is very important to have an accurate picture of their condition. Are they a public safety risk?  Is it better to repair, or replace them when they fail? One thing you know for sure: you must understand where you are before you can determine where you can go and the same is true for your infrastructure assets.

Watch our collaborative Infor and Advoco webinar to learn how with assessment tools found in EAM you can:

  • Manage an accurate asset registry

  • Assess and score the condition of assets

  • Analyze your data and determine the best course of action

  • Prioritize your investment funding

Beat the Delays: Planning & Scheduling

​There is nothing worse than delayed work due to broken or unavailable parts or labor. One of the fastest and most effective investments your organization can make to improve productivity and availability is utilizing Maintenance Planning and Scheduling. To meet the need for increased equipment reliability you need to improve parts availability from your maintenance stores: reducing wait times; eliminating unnecessary parts; and ensuring accurate information.

The planning modules also help to allocate the correct labor resources at the correct time for the task at hand – improving efficiency and accurate budgeting. Overall, maintenance tasks are as much as 50% more efficient in terms of cost and time. Join us for this webinar to help you harness the power of Planning and Scheduling in Infor EAM.

Current Practices: Cross-Industry Analysis of Infor EAM

​Everyone wants to be the “Best” so it’s natural to want a “Best Practices Report.” Quite honestly, we have always felt a little funny about the term “Best Practices.” After diving into our “Best Practices Survey” results, our feelings on the term were affirmed and we experienced a major paradigm shift. We were not asking about your “Best Practices” in our survey, we were asking about your current practices, and thus our “Current Practices Report” was born because you can’t have a best practice if it doesn’t fit your real practice.


In this webinar, we discuss key findings from our “Current Practices Report” where we asked respondents about their real practices with Infor EAM. The survey provided valuable feedback from Infor EAM users regarding how they use the system for purchasing, managing MRO parts, reporting, and more. Find out how other users manage operations with Infor EAM, and learn useful tips to better handle your own processes and enhance the way you use your system. Turn other’s Current Practices into a solution to match the unique needs of your organization. We have a very special guest for this webinar. Kevin Price, Product Director at Infor, will be joining us to share his feedback. You don't want to miss this online event!

Utilizing Closing Codes and Why It's Important to Your Business

​One of our favorite quotes, by Coach Jim Johnson, is “To be exceptional, you have to be great at the things you can control.” You can accomplish this by turning an often underused EAM functionality into Knowledge and Operating Efficiencies! One effective investment an organization can make to improve productivity and availability of its equipment is to manage assets with a proactive maintenance program. Our team will discuss EAM closing codes, the closing code hierarchy capability, and why the utilization of these features is so important.
