Any organization that dispatches work orders and needs immediate responses will benefit from this new wearable technology solution.

The mobile world is exploding with innovation – from smartphones to tablets and now wearable technology. Wearable technology brings the power of the smartphone out of the pocket and into the field of vision.

Interloc Solutions, long time innovator for mobile solutions for IBM Maximo, now integrates the award winning Interloc Mobile Informer for Maximo product with Google’s Android Wear. Google touts Android Wear as a way to have "timely information,” and has made the platform available on a number of wearable devices. This makes Android Wear the perfect companion for Interloc’s Mobile Informer and IBM Maximo.

Interloc has developed a proof of concept showcasing how Android Wear can be relevant for maintenance professionals. The proof of concept uses Interloc’s Mobile Informer product on the backend, the Android Wear platform and a tethered smart phone.

This proof of concept demonstrates a work order that is dispatched from Maximo and being received on the Android Wear device. With Mobile Informer and Android Wear, technicians are immediately notified when a Maximo work order is dispatched to them just by glancing at their Android Wear device. They can then easily respond to the request – accepting or rejecting assigned work in real time.

“This proof of concepts demonstrates the flexibility of Mobile Informer,” says Jason VenHuizen, EVP, Products & Technology at Interloc Solutions. VenHuizen goes on to say, “Any organization that dispatches work orders and needs immediate responses will benefit from this new wearable technology solution.”

The proof of concept will be unveiled at the Fall Maximo Utility Working Group September 29 – October 2 in Phoenix, Arizona.
