Olympus KeyMed

Fife-based IFS integration specialist Cooper Software has released a cutting-edge mobile service application for Olympus KeyMed, the leading manufacturer of optical and digital equipment for healthcare and consumer electronics.

The mobile solution will provide Olympus KeyMed service engineers in the field with real-time workload and work order information via Android tablets.

Engineers will also be able to log time spent using a time tracker, record the issuing of parts and tools, and sign-off work carried out while on-site.

With seamless integration via the IFS ERP system, the use of the application will be extended to deliver a number of key business benefits, including ‘on the go’ decision making and shortening the time taken to capture and document the administrative data managed by engineering teams in the field.

Mike Hawthorne, Olympus KeyMed’s Application Development & Support Manager, commented, “This system will deliver real business value to the operational service and maintenance engineering teams. After a comprehensive selection process, we chose Cooper Software because of their in-depth expertise in both IFS systems integration and mobile developments. Their experience in having previously supplied service maintenance application for other IFS users gave us  confidence that the application delivered was founded on a proven and established platform.”

Cooper Software Managing Director, Frank Cooper, commented, “We have invested significantly in the development of mobile applications.  Having delivered more than 200 system integration developments for IFS, this will help us further push the boundaries of the latest technology - both hardware and software - that’s available on the market today. To have been the successful provider for the Olympus KeyMed contract is a real indicator of the quality of our technology, and the successful delivery of the project is testament to the talented team and the ranging capability we have here at Cooper Software.”
