Let’s say you have one MEX system, but you operate across two separate sites. You may want to have your MEX users accessing their own site’s Assets, Work Orders, and inventory, and not the content from a different site. For that, MEX Regions is your answer!
The Regions feature has been designed as added functionality in MEX to allow companies to have multiple ‘Sites’ running autonomously.
Regions allow MEX to be set up so that the content within your system is only accessible to users in the same site as said content, removing any risk of users interacting with data from a different site.
With Regions, the Asset Register in MEX can be set up in a structure that holds each sites’ assets under their own branch. For example, below is an image of the Asset Register without any Regions applied.

From this layout a Region can then be set up for each site to include only their Assets.
The users of these sites can then be given access to their respective site’s Region and will only be able to work with the Assets and its associated Work Orders, Preventative Maintenance Schedules, Requests etc…

Do note that administrative users will be able to see and interact with the entire database allowing for an easy overview of the whole operation.
Although we are looking at the Asset Register in this example, most of MEX can be Regionalised. For example, each Region could also only have access to the Account Codes that apply to their operation.
The following areas can be Regionalised in MEX:
There are some basic rules to be aware of when setting up Regions which are outlined below:
