North East-based engineering software and services provider Phusion IM has pushed ahead of its competitors with the launch of a revolutionary mobile solution, which is fully integrated with its existing suite of Engineering Data Management (EDM) solutions.

Phusion Onsite is a powerful mobile and web-based tool for data collection, inspection and management of asset information. It can be used on Apple, Android and Windows devices, and, works seamlessly with the company’s established suite of software tools and other third party enterprise systems and databases. Certified mobile and tablet devices can be supplied for data collection and ATEX inspections in hazardous areas up to zone 1 classification.

The combination of Phusion Onsite’s integration with other software and data sources, its cutting edge use of RFID and QR scanners, ability to feed-forward data, capture in-field imagery of defects, client tailoring and its configurable architecture put it ahead of comparable products. It has already been rolled out to a number of clients across various sectors, covering Facilities Management, Process Industries and Utilities sectors. The benefits being realised are image capture, reporting, creation of audit trails for internal and external use, ease of adoption, condensed and sped up work flows and compatibility with existing enterprise systems such as SAP.

Phusion, which has offices in the UK and Australia, provides its suite of engineering information software, mobile solutions and consultancy services to support its customers with systems implementation and optimisation, compatibility with legacy systems, strategic consultancy, IM handover, materials management, engineering information management and compliance.It has delivered off-the-shelf and bespoke solutions for a wide range of global, industry-leading clients, including Chevron, BP, INPEX and Total.

Steve Pearson, Executive Chairman at Phusion, said: “Phusion Onsite will revolutionise asset management throughout the lifecycle of large and small scale engineering projects, from construction and commissioning, to maintenance and even decommissioning. Many companies are still collecting information on paper, which is both time consuming and causes data entry errors.

“Onsite allows field operators and office teams to work together to ensure that information is up-to-date and accessible. This correct and connected information increases operational efficiency, and reduces errors and costs. It is an extremely versatile application; it works as a stand-alone application, or can integrate with the full Phusion software suite or other leading software systems.”
