Whether it is a remote location or within an area of your workplace that has limited network connectivity, these network black spots can hinder your connection to the MEX system and render the app useless when you need to use it the most.

Eliminate Reliance on a Steady Network Connection

The Go Mobile feature of MEX eliminates the apps reliance on a steady network connection in order to work with MEX. The MEX app gives you the tools that allow you to sync your data directly onto the device while you’re still in network range. You can then work with MEX even in the most remote location.

Let’s Go Mobile

Getting your online data into a disconnected state is easy with only three steps.

  • Starting from the main menu of MEX tap the Go Mobile button.
  • This is where you tell the app what data you need to be synced onto the device to allow you to effectively work offline. Do this by tapping on the sync button down the bottom left of your screen.

Here you can either configure MEX to only sync data that is

  • Relevant to your site
  • Relevant to the department you are working in
  • Or simply pull across the work that is associated with your user in MEX.

This is useful if you’re dealing with hundreds or even thousands of records.

  • Once you are satisfied with your data selection, tap the sync button again and you’re ready to work offline.

That’s it – now you can apply your knowledge of MEX and use the system as you always have.

Once you have completed your tasks and have returned back within networks range, simply sync back the information you have entered into the respective modules and the live MEX system will be updated.


To keep things simple, the process of syncing your offline data and receiving data is the same. Just hit that sync button.

I recommend syncing your disconnected data back into MEX whenever you are in the range of a reliable network. This could be on a lunch break or at the end of the day. And always sync your data first thing in the morning before you head out. Keep your data fresh and your boss happy.
