Digital workshop assistant for efficient maintenance documentation - zedas®asset Touch

The smart solution for paperless maintenance

zedas®asset Touch as a mobile workshop solution enables efficient and user-friendly recording, documentation and processing of repair and maintenance orders.

The previous paper-based order management and maintenance documentation in the workshop are now completely digitalised. Repair and maintenance orders are processed directly on site using ECM-compliant documentation with a tablet. zedas®asset Touch is already fully configured and thus ready for immediate use. Compared to a freely configurable solution, this significantly reduces both time and resource consumption and minimises the technical risk that would otherwise have to be taken on by the company itself.

The reduced graphical user interface of the workshop assistant zedas®asset Touch provides a quick overview of all user-specific activities and allows concentration on individual tasks. Thanks to the well-proven operating concept, tasks can be selected and processed quickly and easily by touch. Keyboard entries are avoided as far as possible and alternative functionalities such as scanning a QR code are offered instead. Workshop personnel can immediately access the information they need, minimising time-consuming queries and input errors.

The digital assistant navigates the user through each individual step. Input fields and selection options ensure that the employee saves all necessary data without errors. The integrated push function allows orders, processes and checklists to be processed simultaneously by several employees.
