Calculate the benefits of mobile in EAM

When your company’s assets are distributed, your people are mobile, and your customers are on the go, the way you conduct business is critical to your success. In order to operate at maximum efficiency, everyone and everything has to be connected. Whether you are in utilities, oil & gas, manufacturing, life sciences, transportation, public sector or other asset intensive sectors, SAP mobile apps for enterprise asset management provide the real-time answer.

However as I discussed in an earlier blog series I did on making the business case for mobile, you need to quantify the benefits using mobile before you are going to make an investment in time, money and resources.  With over 600 live customers, we compiled success metrics over the years that we can use to build the business case.

SAP customers have seen the following improvements in their workforce when using mobile apps from SAP:

  • Safety incidents reduced to near zero
  • Work capacity increased by 10 to 20%
  • Labor productivity increased by up to 50%
  • Rework reduced by 15 to 20%


Mobile apps from SAP have helped SAP customers realize these asset-related benefits:

  • Downtime and production delays reduced by 20 to 30%
  • Preventable failures reduced by up to 90%
  • Maintenance backlog reduced by up to 60%
  • Inventory carrying costs reduced by 5 to 10%

Thus with our mobile asset management solutions you can improve workforce safety and productivity, optimize asset performance, and transform maintenance operations. To see the benefits of mobile that your organization or team could experience, we have created a simple value calculator found at

      Wonderful Application. I will pass this on to my sales team. When dealing with customers, at times its hard to quantify against these parameters. This will for sure help.
