MEX has been busy making new tools to make our MEX user’s job easier to manage their work. One of these has been the creation of a tool to help our users manage the contractors that come on site to do work.
And this has been addressed with a two pronged attack.
Firstly, from a management perspective. What our users have told us is that it is just hard to manage the work that contractors do, in keeping tabs on what purchase orders are out there and the processing of the contractor invoices.
To combat this we have made a change to the work order module. The focus of the work orders has gone away from an in house view and instead focused on the work that contractors do and what is important.
The listing, figure 1, for work orders is now targeted at the work contractors do. And from a management angle it is now clear and easy to see what contractors have what jobs. What Purchase Orders have been sent out for the job, its invoice status and whether it has been approved by your own management team.
Some of the features of the contractor module are:
This module is there to make it easier for MEX users to manage their contractors.
Additionally there is also a new module that has been created exclusively for Contractors.
The contractor can log onto MEX from wherever they are and they have limited access to the system so that they can only do what they need to do inside of MEX or FleetMEX.
As a user of MEX the contractor is nominated as to be able to use the contractor module. They can log into this and will be presented with the screen in figure 2.
The features of this are:
The contractor has limited avenues of what they can do in the contractor portal. And this is by intention. The contractor can do what they need to do but not affect your MEX or FleetMEX system
