Major Canadian integrated oil company goes live with Interloc's Mobile Informer for Maximo to extend Maximo with lightweight, user-friendly mobile applications. The goal: widespread user acceptance, productivity gains, and data accuracy.

Mobile Informer: Next Generation Mobility for Maximo
Our goal with Mobile Informer is to provide Maximo mobility that works.

When a major Canadian integrated oil company, based in Calgary, AB, went looking for a mobile solution to extend their IBM Maximo implementation, they had a simple goal: a warehouse inventory management application that would be welcomed by their warehouse users.

After extensive research and a thorough vetting process, the Canadian oil company decided on Interloc Solutions’ Mobile Informer solution. Mobile Informer is Interloc’s next generation mobile solution for IBM Maximo. It is both native to Maximo and native to the smart device chosen.

Warehouse Inventory Management that Works

The oil company knew that the time was ripe to bring mobility to their inventory management – but they also knew that they had to get it right, both for their business and for their warehouse users. They also knew that bringing mobility to their warehouse users would help the business gain all of the benefits that mobile brings – including increased warehouse user productivity and data accuracy.

In the spring, they turned to Interloc and Mobile Informer. The task was to build a Warehouse Inventory Management (WIM) mobile application with a barcode scanner that was feature rich for the business, yet simple enough to be universally accepted by the end users. The application had to perform such tasks as:

  • Purchase order receiving
  • Issues
  • Returns
  • Transfers
  • Inventory bin cycle count
  • Material staging & Pick up
  • Printing of warehouse labels

Mobile Go Live: Summer 2014

As of this release, the oil company went live at three of their northern Alberta sites. The application is native to Android devices and intuitive to warehouse workers. Initial reaction to the application has been very positive.

"Interloc is pleased with the widespread acceptance of the Mobile Informer application," says Mike Watson, President & CEO, Interloc Solutions. Watson goes on to say, "Our goal with Mobile Informer is to provide Maximo mobility that works."
