Connected Worker

Improve the effectiveness of your workforce by linking your workers with access to information so they can make faster, better decisions.

A U.S. study from Pew Research Center states that 77% of adults in 2018 own a smart phone. This means that within seconds, 77% of your front-line workers can access any piece of information available on the internet.

How long does it take front-line workers to access information they need to do their job timely and effectively? Without a Connected Worker strategy, front-line workers feel disconnected from the rest of the operation, like they’re stuck on a deserted island.

Empower your front-line workers through a connected worker strategy and improve how work is performed as part of your Maintenance, Inspection, and Operation processes while boosting compliance and safety with Connected Workers - rescue them off the island and bring them into twenty-first century civilization.

Hexagon's Connected Worker strategy delivers a consolidated view to connect your front-line workers to the multitudes of different information systems in use at the plant today without storing or duplicating the data. This allows your Connected Workers to efficiently carry out routine processes, improve Operator productivity, and reduce OPEX.

Connected Workers have assets back up and running faster and safer after unplanned downtime:


Notified workers of events immediately


Connect with other resources instantly


Respond quickly with the right tools and information

What makes them more efficient?


Real-time access to all the data supports better, smarter, faster decisions

Tool Time

Increasing tool time directly increases productivity


Eliminating paper processes to optimize data collection and business workflows

It's in the numbers:


Realize potential OPEX cost savings of 7 to 8 percent and improve your bottom line by as much as 300 points through a reduction in downtime and labor costs.

Time Gained

Reduce time spent on non-value-added tasks by 15 percent to increase tool time, eliminate rework, and respond faster.

Performance Indicators

Watch your lagging indicators such as Mean Time to Repair (MTTR), First Time Fix Rate (FTF), Maintenance Backlogs, and Preventative Maintenance Compliance improve.
