VIZIYA Mobile Workshop to highlight advanced practices
Chris McIntosh, VP of Product Management at VIZIYA, will lead the Mobile Workshop at the 2019 VIZIYA Summit.
The VIZIYA Maintenance Summit & User Group offers tremendous opportunities for product specific education designed to help maintenance professionals get the most out of VIZIYA’s solutions. The Hutton Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee will host the event, taking place November 4 to 8, 2019. Book your tickets for the VIZIYA Maintenance Summit here.
The workshops are designed so that both neophytes and power users will learn something of interest. This is particularly true in the case of the Mobile Workshop, dedicated to an in-depth look at VIZIYA Mobile. The workshop will be led by Chris McIntosh, VP of Product Management at VIZIYA.
McIntosh joined VIZIYA in 2007, shortly after the company’s founding. In that time, McIntosh has put significant efforts into working directly with VIZIYA’s customers to identify market requirements which could be incorporated into the company’s core applications. A skilled software developer himself, McIntosh led VIZIYA’s Mobile solution team in developing the product and ensuring it met and exceeded the key functional requirements demanded by the industry.
“The workshop will start with making sure everyone has mastered the basics of Mobile and really knows exactly what the product has to offer,” says McIntosh. “We’ll briefly go over the available modules and do a basic walkthrough of Mobile’s features and functions before we tackle the advanced stuff.”
The Mobile Workshop is primarily intended for customers already using the product, but those considering it for their organizations are also welcome to attend. VIZIYA Mobile is a powerful tool for maintenance and reliability, enabling staff to achieve reduced downtime, improved project control through real-time recording of work, more effective collaboration and more efficient processes, and much more.
“The most valuable part of the workshop, in my view, is when we get into the advanced topics. For one thing, we’re going to look at ideas to help minimize sync times. In turn, this usually leads to greater wrench time as technicians will have the information they need as soon as possible. That means they can just get on with the job.”
Part of VIZIYA Mobile’s power lies in its flexibility. One goal of the workshop will be to help users exploit that flexibility to achieve success.
“We’ll be taking a deep dive into the available configurations that you may not have known even existed,” says McIntosh.
“I’m really excited about this part, personally. One of the great advantages of any mobile solution is that the data updates in real-time. That’s hugely beneficial for most situations, but there are certain situations where you don’t want real-time updates. We’re going to dig into some of those situations to help customers get the best results out of VIZIYA Mobile.”
As VIZIYA Mobile’s lead designer and manager, McIntosh certainly knows a lot about how to use the product to its full potential. He notes, though, that users will be encouraged to share their own best practices with the software.
“It’s going to be a great opportunity for customers to ask the product management team questions directly, but I’m really interested in seeing our customers learn from each other. This workshop is going to be a fantastic pooling of knowledge,” he says.
The Mobile Workshop will also include a chance for customers to see and experience new and upcoming features. McIntosh says they also plan to have the developmental roadmap on display to give customers an idea of what to expect from VIZIYA Mobile in the future.
The Mobile Workshop is offered at 9 a.m. on Monday, November 4 and again at 9 a.m. on Friday, November 8.
