Engineer efficiency

Streamline and manage your maintenance activity with an app to provide engineers with a paperless workflow and provide your back office with instant real-time information from their job status updates.


Keeping everyone in the loop

Automated alerts based on real-time engineer updates, improves customer service and keeps your customers in the loop, whilst new jobs can be pushed to an engineer who is already in the field.


Organise and prepare your technicians

With powerful GPS technician tracking and mobile technology, you can dynamically allocate jobs to the nearest, best equipped engineer.


Go paperless on the move

Checklists and documentation no longer need to be printed by engineers to take in the field, this will save money on printing and paper storage costs. You can even obtain electronic signatures to confirm works orders have been completed.

We have seen huge gains in engineer productivity and efficiency by implementing Workshop Mobile. Each engineer clicks a button when they start and finish each job. We’ve been able to analyse engineer activity data and that has enabled us to set more realistic benchmark times for each task they do. As a result, our time estimates are now far more accurate and are no longer based on best guess.

Additional features


Time forecasting and management

Workshop Mobile will give you accurate, real-time data to help you better plan your resources and set more realistic timing benchmarks for standard maintenance tasks.

  • Set the highest standard in breakdown response times – Ensure that you meet your target SLAs and deliver on your customer promises.
  • Oversee the status of workshop repair jobs in real-time – workshop and depot managers can see up-to-date information of all current and completed works orders.
  • Intelligent scheduling – Pick a resource for a job and be warned if there is insufficient travel time to the location.
  • Shortened time from works order to invoice dispatch – Deliver works orders in real-time direct to engineer mobiles then return captured customer signatures back into MCS-rm, enabling the hire desk to despatch invoices quickly.

Maintaining procedures

With Workshop Mobile, you are able to ensure that all business processes are kept consistent and are easily followed. You can:

  • Upload photographs of damage or work completed to improve visibility and reduce customer queries. 
  • Assign charges, parts and labour to the works order and send instructions to the depot to order spare parts.
  • View checklists to avoid missing important steps – guide engineers through a process whether performing an inspection, a risk assessment or a repair to ensure that all steps in the works order are completed correctly.

Becoming more responsive

By being able to react to changes in the field with ease, your engineers can provide the best customer service. They will always be organised and prepared for their day, even when last minute changes occur, allowing the engineer and customers to communicate with minimal disruption.

  • Respond to dynamic changes in the field - Automatically alert customers by SMS of your engineers’ arrival time on site and cut down on customer waiting times.
  • Be prepared when attending breakdowns on-site with access to:
    - Background details for the works order
    - Contact information
    - Site addresses and satnav directions
    - Access electronic documents, such as equipment configuration guides, manuals, health and safety compliance forms and insurance forms.
