Introducing Offline Mobile
Our key focus in this Release was our Mobile offering, and specifically making PEMAC Assets available on mobile when the device is in Offline mode. We understand that online access is not always available. For example, Food Manufacturers may have staff working outside with no network access, and larger Manufacturing Plants often lose access deeper into the production facility. With PEMAC Assets now available offline, tracking and recording activities does not have to stop.
PEMAC Asset Mobile Users can manually switch to offline mode, or if connectivity drops they will be prompted to switch offline. Once back online, all data is automatically synchronised ensuring accuracy of records. There are also additional fail-safes such as automatically locking jobs that have been taken offline for Online users, ensuring no duplication of work.
Below are some of the features which are available offline –
- Details of Assets, History, attributes and corresponding Work Orders
- The ability to record actions, complete tasks and create Follow-on orders & add Resources to offline jobs
- Associated Job attachments appear plus the device camera is integrated with automatic upload
- Record Calibration test results
- Commit to or cancel Spare Parts
- Warnings & Defect Analysis
Additional Features Added in Release 2.8

PEMAC Forms Release Updates
For Customers using PEMAC Forms integrated with PEMAC Assets, there have been two updates to Standard Actions.
A standard action is where a Form can trigger an activity in PEMAC Assets when it reaches a defined stage.
Updating Asset Fields – A new action called ‘Update fields on an Asset’ has been added allowing Maintenance Managers to approve any proposed Asset changes before they are actually completed – overall better control.
Updating Work Order Status – Two further new actions have been added to Forms allowing Users to take Work Orders on or off Hold using Form Approval giving more control on Maintenance jobs. Eg: A Permit form can put a job on hold and then release it once the permit is approved.
These are just some of the updates from PEMAC Assets Release 2.8.
