Access Anywhere/Anytime Maintenance Status with Smartenance, a New Mobile App from Festo

Smartenance from Festo offers a mobile and desktop app for
unifying maintenace planning and implementation.

No matter their location or time of day, every maintenance team member with a smart phone, tablet, or desktop computer can open maintenance plans and activity status through the new Festo Smartenance app. The app can be used with Festo and every other supplier’s equipment – fully vendor neutral.  

Smartenance consists of two parts: a mobile maintenance calendar as an app for smartphone and tablets on the shop floor and a desktop web-browser interface for managing and documenting maintenance tasks in the office. Team coordination through real-time information makes maintenance management more efficient. Smartenance is simple, quick to install, and self-explanatory. Download it through the Apple or Google App stores.

There are three levels of Smartenance and a free trial offer. Smartenance Basic enables the creation of maintenance tasks with an option for incorporating supporting images, PDFs, and videos. Plant floor personnel gain mobile access to the maintenance calendar and background documentation. Through the app they can provide feedback, including images and an overview of current status.

Smartenance Advanced adds to Basic with a plant logbook, incident management – reporting, editing, and closing incident tickets – and mobile knowledge search. Smartenance Premium builds on Basic and Advanced by adding event-driven maintenance tasks, a link to MES/ERP, and provides additional document storage capacity. Premium also expands read/write capabilities.

“Smartenance gives small to midsized end users and original equipment manufacturers access to a mobile maintenance tool for ensuring the team has access to current information,” said Frank Latino, product manager, business unit electric automation, Festo. “Smartenance makes maintenance planning and implementing easier. As the business grows, the plant can add Smartenance capabilities.”
