Mobile EAM Apps by SAP Now Optimized for Windows
FREMONT, CA: SAP announces the optimization of its mobile Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) apps like SAP Work Manager and SAP Inventory Manager, for Windows. The EAM apps have been improved based on Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), a graphical subsystem for rendering user interfaces in Windows-based applications by Microsoft.
Jon Arnold, Managing Director, Worldwide Power and Utilities Industry at Microsoft notes, “Organizations across all industries are looking to transform their approach to plant and field services, and the flexibility of the Windows touch environment across devices coupled with SAP’s industry-leading EAM applications makes for a winning combination to greatly improve business performance.”
The optimization results in a simplified navigation throughout the mobile apps, making workers more productive and accurate as they maintain assets. A sampling of the enhancements that leverage WPF includes simpler and larger input fields, improved drop-down menus and a touch-capable calendar.
The extensibility of the EAM apps has also been improved with an Open Scan software development kit (SDK), now part of SAP Mobile Platform 3.0. With SDK, customers can now easily enhance these apps by adding alternate input tools such as bar code scanners, thermometers, calipers and other device features directly within the client. This enables customers and partners to use these apps on most consumer and ruggedized Microsoft devices.
Rick Costanzo, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Telco Industry and Mobility Solutions of SAP says, “With our full spectrum of mobile enterprise application management applications, we are committed to offering our customers the best possible experience by allowing them to run their mobile apps on the latest Windows operating systems.”
