Why AG Smart Inspections Ex?

Traditionally, SAP clients in the Energy Industry have relied on separate IT systems to manage Ex/ATEX inspections. This approach has led to challenges, including a lack of single source of truth and difficulties managing complex interfaces between SAP and these external solutions.
AG's Workmate Ex offers a comprehensive solution for managing Ex/ATEX inspections entirely within SAP, eliminating the need for complex integrations and standalone third-party products. By centralising asset, work management, and Ex/ATEX inspections in a single system, AG's Workmate Ex streamlines operations and improves data consistency.
This innovative solution leverages built-in electrical standards and utilises SAP's latest technologies, such as BTP, to cater to the diverse needs of various stakeholders, including planners, schedulers, technicians, engineers, gatekeepers, maintenance/operations managers, and auditors.

The Benefits

Single Source
of Truth

Simplified IT Landscape: Workmate Ex resides within SAP, ensuring that all work management, asset, and Ex/ATEX inspection data originates from a single source. With no need for complex interfaces or reliance on third-party standalone solutions, this arrangement simplifies the IT landscape, streamlining processes and enhancing efficiency

Reduced IT
Support Costs

Having all components unified within SAP significantly reduces solution support costs. Clients no longer need to maintain separate support teams to manage the complexities of system interfaces. Furthermore, it saves valuable time by eliminating the need to gather information from multiple systems to generate compliance reports.

Improved Visibility
to Risks

Utilising a single system of record combined with the extensive reporting capabilities available in the product delivers greater operational insights. This comprehensive approach enables the identification of potential risks and breaches more effectively, allowing for proactive measures to be taken to mitigate them.

Improved Data Quality

The mobile solution enables technicians to capture pictures, notes, and voice recordings directly in the field. This capability enhances the quality of data input into SAP, ensuring that decision-makers have access to accurate and comprehensive information

Improved Operational Efficiency

Workmate Ex in SAP streamlines processes, eliminates duplication of efforts, and centralises workflows and data in a single platform. This reduces redundant tasks and enhances tool time for technicians, ultimately improving operational performance.

Thanks to 'Smart Ex', we’ve overcome the challenge of alternating between different systems. Now, we input data once on the tablet, right on the spot—no double-duty. Plus, we can take pics and videos in real time, which is a game-changer for easily demonstrating the issue instead of just talking about it. It's a “one stop shop”, making our job in the field way smoother.
