iPlan SAP has been developed to allow you to perform our industry-proven maintenance workflow, collaboratively with your existing SAP solution, without:
- paying for expensive SAP consultants to customise your common SAP version
- the need to deviate from your global SAP model
Typically, modifications to SAP are timely and expensive - not to mention, localisation creates a significant support challenge. iPlan SAP eradicates this and allows you to maintain your common SAP version.
iPlan SAP allows the asset owner to have greater visibility of cost and progress when third-party maintenance contractors are performing maintenance on their behalf, whether under a 'lump sum' and/or 'reimbursable' contract style.
iPlan Sap Benefits
- operations, services and material estimates to be built in iPlan
- operations, services and material estimates to be approved via email, outside of SAP
- operations, services and material estimates to be automatically transported back to SAP so approved costs can be assigned against the relevant operation or service
- all parties, whether asset owner/operator OR third-party maintenance provider, to capture progress and expenditure in iPlan SAP and pass this back to SAP to update the relevant operation/service
iPlan SAP can be used as an alternative to CMMS systems or can operate as the 'glue' between ERP systems, such as SAP, Maximo and Primavera.
With a proven in-built planning methodology and workflow, iPlan SAP makes it easy for professionals to perform to consistently high standards.
In using iPlan SAP, Asset Owners and Contractors will save significant time and money due to the efficiencies created in using software that has been designed specifically for routine maintenance.
All iPlan SAP key stages can be managed by an electronic sign-off process, including: job detailing, estimation management, materials ordering, variation control, progress recording and time recording through to quality assurance, which means that all event information exists in one system and is not spread across multiple systems.
Accompanying the iPlan SAP workflow is the ability to store any ancillary materials within a given event, such as drawings, photographs and documentation.
With an unlimited number of seats to an iPlan SAP license, users can access and update the software on site or remotely with varying levels of access.
iPlan versus Prometheus
IAMTech's mobility apps allow users to benefit from the functionality of iPlan SAP in the field, capturing defect data, quality assurance progress and emerging works.
To deliver maximum value, iPlan SAP enables both the Asset Owner and their Maintenance Partners to share the same plan, offering the optimum in transparency and a clear audit trail.
iPlan SAP has the ability to retain all historical equipment records/work packs. This history can be reutilised time and time again, reducing the time involved in re-planning.
The Norms and schedules of rates within iPlan SAP enable rapid estimation and can be fine-tuned based upon evaluating the learning from previous event activity.
iPlan SAP produces multi-discipline work packs, which can include but are not limited to: job cards, permits, vessel entry and risk assessments, ensuring those performing the work are equipped with the necessary permissions.
Understanding user needs
iPlan SAP has been designed:
Specifically for maintenance professionals within the Oil, Gas, Power and Chemical industries. We understand the needs of these job roles and have developed iPlan SAP practically to ensure the solution complements these individuals' roles and responsibilities.
To operate in both the office and on site. We understand the importance of iPlan SAP users being able to be on site and capture such things as progress, statuses and quality assurance.
Planning for tomorrow
iPlan SAP has the ability to retain all historical event data; this history is linked to both the job record and the plant equipment.
This history can be reutilised time and time again. In an instant, users can understand all historical works to date and reutilise them for the future.
This significantly reduces the time involved in re-planning events that have been previously managed using iPlan SAP. In turn, this saves significant costs by reducing the number of personnel required to successfully plan an event.
Having a data audit trail is vital to Asset Owners and Contractors. By logging who made what decisions and when, iPlan SAP clearly highlights areas of responsibility between the Asset Owner and Maintenance Contractor.
Safety & security first
iPlan SAP also reduces the risk of incorrect equipment or materials being wrongly allocated during a contract, saving potential harm from incorrectly maintained equipment or material misuse.
All users can access the system remotely via a secure cloud portal. Data inputted in iPlan SAP is held on secure servers and accessed via a secure website using the same encryption methods as online banking systems.
Asset Owners and Maintenance contractors both having access to the same information via iPlan SAP eliminates the need for Contractors to have access to their clients' IT domains. iPlan SAP operates as a secure internet-based 'sandbox', hosting all necessary information needed for all involved in the event to operate in an informed manner.
In summary, iPlan SAP enables asset owners/operators and maintenance contractors to work collaboratively, while updating relevant records in SAP seamlessly, without the need for expensive consultancy or deviation from a standard version of SAP.
