InterPro launches EZMaxPlanner, the first mobile planning and planning application for IBM Maximo

STONEHAM, Mass., May 11, 2021 / PRNewswire / – InterPro Solutions, which offers the only suite of mobile solutions designed exclusively for IBM Maximo®, today announced the industry’s first mobile planning and scheduling solution: EZMaxPlanner, that enables Maximo planning teams to manage activities of any complexity and duration, including projects with sequencing dependencies, multistakeholder orchestration, and defined milestones.

Planners and planners in asset-intensive industries have to manage the inspection, maintenance and repair of thousands of assets and logistics on hundreds of events – but planning in native IBM Maximo is very heavy. Complementary office planning tools have emerged to fill the void, but have proven difficult to learn, complex to use, and can take years to master.

EZMaxPlanner changes this paradigm, offering intuitive, mobile navigation and powerful features that make planners and planners immediately productive and streamline the entire planning and assignment process. Processes that require 12 steps in many legacy planning tools can now be completed with one click.

EZMaxPlanner enables planners to:

  • Allocate in batches between asset types;
  • Drag and drop work orders;
  • Assign the work to the owner, manager or supervisor;
  • Identify overlapping work or unallocated time to balance workloads;
  • Reassign / reprogram from any view;
  • Use mobile push notifications to add work orders directly to technician calendars;
  • Establish milestones and link tasks to milestones;
  • Plan complex events such as the rotation of a building; and
  • Plan recurring, complex, multi-party events such as college graduation ceremonies.

These features help InterPro customers:

  • Eliminate over-booking of resources;
  • Improve the use of technicians;
  • Balance workloads;
  • Minimize downtime;
  • Improve first correction rates by allowing a better match of jobs with specific skills, references and experience;
  • Empower field supervisors; and
  • Simplify the planning and execution of complex events.

One company moving to EZMaxPlanner is EQT Corporation, the largest producer of natural gas in United States. “InterPro’s EZMaxPlanner streamlines the entire process of assigning work orders and managing our teams’ complex schedules,” said Michael Derr, Lead Systems Analyst at EQT Corporation. “It brings significant efficiency gains to our planning process, including the ability to batch allocate thousands of monthly preventive maintenance and inspection activities, leading to a significant time savings compared to the one-off functionality of Maximo. EZMaxPlanner Drag & Drop functionality has provided the greatest efficiencies to our users by far. Being able to take a list of work orders and easily drop them into a calendar allows us to ensure that we are always planning the right job for the right technician – no more – or underbooking the technician’s work schedule. “

The annual survey of InterPro customers conducted in December 2020 found that the main challenge facing clients today was planning and scheduling. “We are already seeing operations professionals looking for better tools to plan and assign technicians and manage complex events,” said Bill Fahey, Managing Director of InterPro Solutions. “Basic planning tools have been around for years, but we’re seeing a demand for higher-level, significantly easier-to-use solutions – next-generation mobile tools that streamline the planning and assignment process and help managers plan for weeks, months or cases of recurring events, even years to come. “

Beyond the extended functionality for the core planning and planning team, the EZMaxPlanner mobile app enables field staff to manage work assignments, overtime and time off requests for their team (s) ( s), including offline use in locations where data connectivity is not available.

EZMaxPlanner is offered as a stand-alone product, but like all products in InterPro’s EZMax suite, it also works in concert with other members of the EZMax family: EZMaxMobile (work execution), EZMaxRequest (request management), EZMaxVendor (supplier management) and EZMaxInsight (native Maximo reporting). All are designed to increase the efficiency of maintenance operations and functions by enabling mobile access and expanding native Maximo functionality.
