Honeywell Fire Systems, a part of Honeywell International Inc (HON - Free Report) , recently created eVance Services to better connect with contractors who manage fire alarm systems within commercial buildings. eVance Services are a set of desktop and mobile applications to ensure a safety system for these contractors.
With the help of EffectiveUI – a user experience agency, eVance Services created two different applications. These include service manager – a web-based application for desktop, laptop and mobile devices; and inspection manager – a mobile application that helps in on-site systems testing.
The service manager application streamlines dispatching, scheduling and maintenance activities and eliminates 70% of duplicate data entry for dispatchers and managers. All inspection reports performed through eVance Services are stored securely in the cloud, making them organized and easily accessible to building managers. They also provide with automatic alert if an alarm is triggered.
On the other hand, the inspection manager app helps on-site technicians to efficiently test all fire-safety equipments, reduces the chance of errors in testing and creates accurate test reports that users can deliver to their building management customers. These services designed by Honeywell and EffectiveUI help fire safety technicians to manage on-site systems in an effective manner.
