COVID-19: Can you implement social distancing in maintenance processes?
Note to SAP Community members: SAP recognizes the importance of the integrity of the SAP Community. In an effort to continue to support the community and at the same time adapt to this time of uncertainty, we are creating a temporary space for partners who have free solutions that can help you continue to move forward. Our intention is to give you direct access to their solutions as they may provide you with practical help to tackle COVID-19 disruptions.
In short, yes you can, and On Device Solutions are able to offer a solution for free, for 6 months.
Governments across the globe have issued statements to implement social distancing measures to help suppress the spread of COVID-19. Social distancing, which applies to everyone who is not covered by self- isolation measures, requires people to minimise social contact with people outside of their household and to ensure 2 metre space from these people.
Until a vaccine is found and rolled out successfully, enterprises need to put measures in place to prevent a lockdown happening again at such a huge scale. If you’re currently working from home, or your business is currently shut down, the priority will be to explore how your business can continue to operate by still adhering to social distancing. Not only will this keep your staff safe, but also ensure business continuity.
Contamination and disease can spread by both social contacts, and by transmitting via objects such as paper. In the manufacturing and services industries, it is therefore essential to move towards paper-free, with staff members ‘owning’ their mobile device and being responsible for regular disinfecting and cleaning of surfaces.
By strategically using a mobile asset management solution like myJobCard, Enterprises can essentially have the work orders completed by Technicians/Artisans without anyone sharing the papers or computer desktops. This paperless maintenance process is enabled by myJobCard features like the dynamic form engine, real-time synchronisation, attachment download/upload, material request and allocation, and activity logging.
To help SAP customers enable social distancing for employees at their workplace and make them future ready, we are offering myJobCard free* for 6 months. The solution is plug and play for SAP ECC and S/4HANA and can be deployed within 8 weeks.
Some other benefits of myJobCard are:
- Increase maintenance process efficiency by 30-35%.
- Real-time visibility of the information in the SAP system.
- Better preparedness for compliance through an audit trace.
So, if you decide now, we can deploy myJobCard in your environment before the lockdown ends.
