Introducing the MEX iOS App View

Introducing the MEX iOS App View

With the release of MEX iOS 2.2 comes a brand new and exciting feature called App View. This new view builds upon the success of the MEX iOS app and adds a new dimension to using the MEX app on the road.

We looked at the app and worked with our customers on improving its features. We listened to your feedback on the usability of that app and from this investigation decided to create the all new App View from the ground up.

App View Improves Focus in Sunlight

Out in the field, a contractor wants to focus on the tasks at hand. With a lot of this work carried out in open air, the rays from the sun can be a major hindrance in data entry on the app. App View takes this into account and makes it easier to work with by taking on a black and white scheme so that it is easy to read in direct sunlight.

Most Common MEX iOS Task Streamlined

The most common MEX tasks have been streamlined, with a spotlight on what you need to see to get the job done and move onto the next task.

These common tasks include:

  • Work Orders
  • Stocktakes
  • Issue Returns
  • Asset Readings

In each of these modules, all buttons and text areas have been enlarged and as a result simplifying navigation and data entry throughout these modules, taking into account those of you who have fat fingers! In doing this, we have made sure that the bare essentials that you need to get your work done is simply laid out in front of you, ready for use and a lot easier to enter task information. Anything else is hidden within the Classic View just a button click away.

Working With the Classic and App Views

Classic View is still there to give you a higher level of granular control that App View doesn’t provide. However, App View takes away the learning curve and new users can get up and running in no time.

With the combination of these two views, everyone, whether they are a power user or a contractor, will be able to effectively use MEX seamlessly and carry on with their maintenance task without interruption.

Do note that the App View is only available on the iPad.
