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:
