Field engineers and technicians working on large projects require up-to-the-minute mobile collaboration to keep complex, multi-party projects on-time and on-budget. Productive operations, worker safety and regulatory compliance are key drivers to consider in selecting the right mobile solution for field technicians.

This 15-page ebook compares how SharePoint, Office 365, OneDrive for Business and 3rd-party solutions can best support field engineers and technicians. To effectively manage projects and meet regulatory compliance, field engineers and technicians need online and offline access to:

  • Contact lists to all team members, vendors, and stakeholders
  • Data to manage schedules, calendars and project lists
  • Documents to ensure access to the latest safety standards and operating procedures
  • Forms to track compliance to operational procedures while in the field
  • Rich media integration to view and upload photos and videos from worksites
  • Compliance for reporting to regulatory agencies and achieving compliance

“Today’s drilling engineer, for example, is responsible for overseeing drilling operations from initial well design to testing, completion, and abandonment at wells. He’s responsible for monitoring drilling progress, for maintaining worker safety and, of critical importance, for ensuring compliance with dynamic operating environmental regulatory requirements. In this scenario, compliance is key.” – Dan Holme Office 365 MVP

SharePoint MVPs Dan Holme and Todd Baginski, and Colligo CEO Barry Jinks outline what’s possible out-of-the box, and where you may need third-party solutions to create secure, productive access to mobile and offline content. This ebook includes:
