June 5, 2014 - ICONICS introduces MobileHMI for Water, a mobile application for the Water and Wastewater industry. ICONICS’ MobileHMI for Water provides a mobile solution with role-based dashboards designed to meet the needs of executives and managers, operators and field service technicians in the water and wastewater industry. MobileHMI for Water gives executives and managers one-touch access to KPIs, charts and other critical information for a unified overview of their enterprise from anywhere at any time. With the ability to swipe through high-level information or drill down to more details on demand, users can easily navigate information to better assess overall cost and efficiency, monitor assets and stay informed about enterprise activity.
Field service technicians spend most of their time moving. While onsite, they work with operators to fix issues that arise for utility customers. Also responsible for maintenance, they need to be able to pull up details about where they are and any equipment nearby. With role-based dashboards that leverage ICONICS’ GEO SCADA maps, MobileHMI for Water enables operators and field service to collaboratively utilize rich, contextual layers of information to efficiently respond to utility customer complaints and critical events. Operators can visualize a wealth of aggregated data to better identify root causes, monitor field service activity in real time, and create and assign work orders that provide the field service technicians with all the details they need. With MobileHMI for Water, field service users can view and update the status of their work orders on the go. MobileHMI for Water can be expanded to include dashboards for commercial and residential customers that provide them with real-time metrics of their current and average water use in relation to their area. Viewing current water usage as well as comparisons to past usage, empowers customers with data of their commercial building or residence, enabling them to manage their water consumption and save on costs. This secure app delivers the power and flexibility of ICONICS’ MobileHMI solution, offering fully customizable, mobile human machine interface (HMI) displays. Fast and easy to deploy, MobileHMI for Water is designed from the ground up to be simple and reliable, enabling instant, one-touch access to key operational performance indicators (KPIs) and other critical information on hundreds of smartphones, tablets, Web browsers or Web-enabled devices. Key features of MobileHMI for Water include:
- Direct connection to HMI displays for real-time monitoring and control of water and wastewater operations, including assets, alarms, trends, field service activity, and customer site conditions.
- Use of the AppHub to create a custom tile organization for the start screen of the app.
- Integration with Smart Tiles for intelligent and immediately recognizable navigation.
