Smart Asset Management is a mobile, offline-capable maintenance and customer service solution for companies using SAP PM or SAP CS. SAM was developed cross-platform and responsive with SAP technologies like SAP MobiLink and SAP UI5.

SAM enables fast management of large amounts of data, is available for SAP ERP as well as SAP S/4HANA and also works offline. Optimal working conditions for your technicians in maintenance and field service.

They have fast access to all relevant data, tools and spare parts at all times. This allows orders and notifications to be processed efficiently and minimizes effort times and costs.

SAM Utilities for energy utilities

SAM Utilities for energy utilities

SAM for Utilities is an SAP-based solution for utilities. It integrates all the functions that off-site employees of electricity network operators, water suppliers and municipal utilities need for efficient order processing.

The solution is based on SAP PM/CS orders and allows technicians to access all relevant order data at any time, without middleware and without a local database.

Utility meter reading

This new SAM 3.0 function allows the user to take meter readings (e.g. a water or electricity meter at the time of moving in, moving out and other processes). The solution is based on PM/CS orders and meter reading receipts. Reading notes and offline validation data can also be used while recording meter readings.

Installation/removal/replacement

The user can use the device management of SAM 3.0 to record the installation, removal and replacement of a meter. The solution is based on PM/CS orders and mobilizes the relevant data from SAP IS-U, such as data on the connection object, the device location, the point of consumption or the meter itself. The user can also enter meter readings, whereby meter reading receipts, reading instructions and the offline validation logic are taken into account.

Disconnection/Reconnection

With SAM 3.0 the user can handle both blocking and restarting (e.g. when moving in, out or payment arrears). The solution is based on PM/CS orders and mobilizes the relevant data from SAP IS-U, such as data on the connection object, the device location, the point of consumption or the meter itself. Within the scope of these processes, SAM also offers the possibility of recording meter readings. Via an alert mechanism, the mobile user is informed if a customer has paid and a blocking is no longer necessary.

Payment history

SAM 3.0 offers mobile users an overview of their customers' historical financial transactions.

Core functions

  • Meter reading
  • Installation/removal/change
  • Lockout/recommissioning
  • Payment history

SAM Smart UI - The smart desktop solution for user-friendly information management

SAM Smart UI - The smart desktop solution for user-friendly information management

SAM Smart UI is a desktop solution where the usability of SAP PM/CS has been optimized to increase productivity in maintenance and customer service.

The tried and tested SAP GUI is completely transaction-based. To perform simple tasks, the user has to use several transactions to get to the target. This results in an unnecessary number of clicks and screen changes. In addition, SAP does not provide a dashboard to give the maintenance staff a simple overview.

Up to now, the view of the big picture was missing
In the GUI as well as in Fiori you are always only within the context of the current transaction or app. If you want more information, you are forced to leave this context and get information elsewhere. All these weaknesses are eliminated by the SAM Smart UI.

Central features of the Smart UI:

  • Central navigation: Access to all relevant areas of the PM at any time
  • Tabs: Enable views and access to e.g. several differently filtered order lists, messages, equipment and much more.
  • Central search: Access to all objects at any time
  • Dashboard: Central access, individually configurable
  • Smart Bar: Presents the most important key figures.

Core functions

  • Individually configurable dashboard
  • Management of technical objects
  • Tree and list view
  • Technical space & equipment details incl. open orders and messages
  • Characteristic data
  • Measuring points & measurement documents
  • Attachments, parts lists, technical objects, calendar

Order management

  • Order list and details
  • Operations and object list
  • Material and time feedback
  • Attachments

Message management

  • View of the messages in list form
  • Measures
  • Activities
  • Object parts with causes and damage patterns

Optional

  • Maintenance plans
  • Checklist Cockpit for creating and managing checklists
  • Purchase requisitions/orders

Advantages:

  • Improving the efficiency of maintenance and service processes
  • Reduction of administration costs through a fully integrated user interface
  • Web-based single point of access for all required system and transaction data, operating instructions and much more
  • Improves employee productivity by up to 30%.
  • Improved transparency of asset status and asset history, targeted prioritization of necessary measures
  • Increase employee acceptance of working with SAP; improve data quality
  • Reduction of overhead and administration costs
  • Acceleration of the decision-making process and improvement of decision quality
