mobilePLUS & Workday®
A Mobile Data Capture Solution
What is mobilePLUS?
mobilePLUS is a complete asset inventory capability for use with Workday® Financial Management. This mobile-based solution meets the challenge many teams face when trying to effectively track items and conduct periodic inventories for analysis, reporting, operational planning and more.
Some organizations still leverage the traditional paper list & clipboard approach to asset inventories. Even when done thoroughly, this process is time consuming. And there still remains the risk of data entry issues once their inventory results are recorded in Workday®.
Other organizations have purchased or built their own apps for their staff to use on cell phones or with other devices. Many of these record a count – but don’t capture any information about the condition/location/operability of the asset. These also often have a challenge in trying to get that count data or results off that device and securely into Workday®.
mobilePLUS is a comprehensive solution that provides the User with an intuitive, automated way to capture inventory count – as well as current information regarding those assets. mobilePLUS can then electronically communicate what Users find to Workday®.
How Can mobilePLUS Support Your Workday® Solution?
Enables Your Team to do More: mobilePLUS is a complete solution that, like Workday®, was built to go anywhere. The mobilePLUS architecture enables your team to use a wide variety of mobile devices to automate the capture of asset data with barcodes, RFID tags &/or intuitive screen entry. Your users aren’t restricted to where there is a network connection either. mobilePLUS was designed to operate anywhere your assets are stored – regardless of network availability.
Expands & Streamlines Your Data Capture: Even the best data entry technicians make mistakes. Scanning linear barcodes is up to 40x faster than manual data entry – and 10,000x more accurate. Scanning 2-D barcodes exponentially expands
the amount of data that can be captured in a single scan. RFID allows you to capture information on assets where you
may not even have a clear line of sight. Combine all of that with an automated communication of data from
mobilePLUS to Workday®, and you ensure that your complete asset data can be trusted as accurate – a critical
component to your analysis, reporting and planning activities.
Adapts with Your Changing Business: The mobilePLUS architecture was designed with change and growth in
mind. mobilePLUS is highly configurable – without having to bring in your IT department to get it done. Maybe you
want to expand your mobile device pool or mix Android and Windows operating systems or add RFID. Maybe your
department would like to capture and manage items that are important to you – but aren’t required by your
organization for reporting to Workday®. mobilePLUS can quickly be updated to accommodate those needs and more.
Our switch-based configuration tools will allow you to quickly change and adapt your solution without trying to get on
your IT department calendar or hiring expensive resources.
