SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of digital solutions across the industrial and energy space, Frost & Sullivan identified the 2020 Class of Top 50 Best-practitioners. Amongst these coveted recipients is Webalo® with the 2020 Global Customer Value Leadership. Webalo's no-code connected frontline worker software platform seamlessly digitizes tasks, integrates the frontline workforce with plant operations, and enables real-time frontline workforce operational visibility across all areas of a plant.
"Webalo carefully planned, designed, and developed its enterprise-grade no-code connected frontline worker platform for the industrial and energy markets. It digitizes paper-based workflows and enables the co-creation of new applications without any programming," said Vasanth Krishnan, Industry Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. "In line with current market needs, Webalo's proprietary Connected Digital Distancing™ (CDD) technology provides unmatched value to its clients by assisting them with business continuity objectives, a particularly critical capability during the COVID-19 pandemic."
Webalo can be deployed on-premise or through the cloud, natively to Android or iOS operating systems, and on browser-based laptops and large-screen displays. Its platform interfaces with existing top-of-the-line industrial software solutions to enhance asset performance management and operations optimization by facilitating two-way communication between frontline workers and industrial software users. It also offers the flexibility to create customizable workflows when interconnecting frontline worker operations and business processes. As a result, clients receive a holistic platform experience that informs decision-making and accelerates time-to-action, leading to proven business value.
Webalo digitizes the frontline workforce in all areas of plant and field operations. For example, Webalo's enterprise and industrial data connectors to EAM platforms such as Infor, Maximo, Oracle, and SAP, together with its multi-dimensional workflows, mobilize maintenance requests, work orders, and standard operating procedures. The platform's ability to orchestrate the workflow steps with notifications and task management enables all jobs to be allocated, executed, and closed directly through the mobile devices of the workforce, without the need to log-in and interact with multiple back-end systems. Webalo provides detailed reporting of all the key data points that are captured during the mobile process, including user information, work order status, and time and process variables.
"Webalo ensures superior client satisfaction through its structured on-boarding process and partnership pathways," noted Ram Ramasamy, Global Client Leader at Frost & Sullivan. "As a Webalo partner, one can build highly mobile native apps that automate the work processes of frontline workforce. These benefits have ensured them to be one of the highly preferred partners for frontline workforce digitalization."
