AIMS OPTIONAL COMPONENTS

Optional Components

AIMS Optional Components allow you to scale your AIMS software to fit your organization’s operational and business needs.  All of our Optional Components can be added when you need them.

ACTIVE DIRECTORY

Active Directory simplifies the login process by automatically authenticating desktop or mobile applications.  Enter a password once for access and avoid the need to repeatedly enter login information when switching between programs.  Save time and money by having your organization’s employee roster automatically updated at specified intervals in AIMS Customer Service.

INSPECTION TEMPLATES

User-defined Inspection Templates track the equipment inspection results of specific procedures and tasks on Work Orders.  Enter equipment readings, values, and pass/fail responses to complete an Inspection Template.

AIMS MOBILE

AIMS Mobile gives technicians real-time access to AIMS while in the field.  Using an iPad, iPhone, or Android, technicians can access Work Orders, Equipment Information, PMs, Parts Inventory, Purchasing, and Data Managers.  If Wi-Fi is unavailable, users can also go offline with no data loss.  When Wi-Fi is available, the work completed offline can be imported directly to your AIMS database.

MORNING NEWS

Morning News allows users to schedule and automatically generate reports at recurring intervals.  Morning News delivers the reports to designated printers, or e-mails them to selected managers, VIP’s, or technicians.

AIMS REPORT DESIGNER

Report Designer allows users to create their own custom Reports in AIMS. Reports are quickly and easily setup with user-defined parameters, and once complete, your Reports remain in AIMS negating the need for third party vendors, like Crystal Reports.

NOTIFYME

NotifyMe is a proactive component that automatically sends e-mail notifications to individuals for pre-defined situations that require immediate attention, such as critical events. Once the situation is remedied or no longer exists, notifications are automatically discontinued. Notifications can be accessed anywhere via smartphone or at a PC.

AIMS REPORT DESIGNER SERVICE

 

With Report Designer Service, the experts at Phoenix can create custom reports for your organization.  You can also choose from over 170 reports in our Report Designer Library.  These Reports can be quickly and easily modified to meet your reporting objectives.

PARTS INTERFACES - ePARTSFINDER

The ePartsFinder Interface allows you to order from PartSource while inside AIMS.  Following the order placement, the part(s) are associated with the Work Order for updates or review.

APPLICATION PROGRAMMING INTERFACE (API)

AIMS utilizes a standard API that allows AIMS to send and receive data between other software systems used in your organization, eliminating custom software.  API’s eliminate manual data transfers by sharing and updating data automatically.  AIMS offers a variety of API vendor opportunities in RTLS, purchasing, parts, equipment testing, time and attendance, and finance.

PARTS INVENTORY

Parts Inventory tracks all aspects of in-house parts including purchase order number, cost, inventory level, order status, and more.  Multiple warehouses can also be deployed to assist in tracking your inventory.

ARCHIVE

Archive simplifies your record-keeping by separating current Work Orders and Equipment Information from outdated records, thus maximizing your system’s performance. Your archived information is stored in AIMS and is easily available for quick reference.

PERFORMANCE AND QUALITY

Performance and Quality is a suite of reports that identifies trends and tracks issues that affect healthcare service departments. Reports include failed PMs, open PMs on life safety equipment, repeat repairs, technician response time, and completion rates.

CONTRACTS MANAGEMENT

Contracts Management easily manages all aspects of service contracts including contract limits, covered equipment, provider’s overall performance, as well as cost-to-value analysis.  Contracts Management is also equipped with a customer survey feature so you will always know the level of your users’ satisfaction for service contractors.

PURCHASE REQUEST DISPATCH

Purchase Request Dispatch is an email based request approval system that helps expedite the purchasing process through quick management approvals and approval notifications.

DIGITAL DASHBOARD

Digital Dashboard gives you real-time access to your KPI’s to easily see information in order to make critical decisions quickly and effectively.
Dashboards can be configured by performance indicators, ratios, risk, and more.  Users can create their own custom dashboards and use the predefined Dashboards from the Library.

PURCHASING

Purchasing automates all aspects of purchasing management and vendor labor procurement.  Purchasing tracks the complete cycle – from requests to back orders, invoices, and credit memos – and shows vendor purchase histories.

DISPATCH CENTER

Dispatch Center provides a single point for processing and dispatching work requests. Work orders are automatically assigned to a technician based on the employee triage queue. The queue is based on technician information such as department, specialty, availability, and workload. Technicians are automatically paged/e-mailed when a work order is assigned to them, and can confirm receipt and completion of their assignment or decline the assignment. Unaccepted work requests are automatically escalated and reassigned.

PURCHASING INTERFACES – LAWSON, McKESSON, and PEOPLESOFT

Automate your procure-to-pay process with simplified ordering. Easily request parts, receive P.O.s, and sync data between your purchasing department and AIMS.

EASYNET 3 – WEB REQUEST

EasyNet 3 is our web-based work request system that allows hospital employees to create maintenance requests directly from their workstation.  In addition, they can monitor Work Order statuses, access equipment records, and receive e-mail alerts when statuses change.

RESOURCE MANAGER WITH MOBILE MESSAGING

Resource Manager automates the Work Order assignment process.  Using user-defined criteria, technicians are automatically assigned to Work Orders based on equipment types, area, and availability.  Technicians can then be automatically e-mailed or paged to alert them of new Work Orders.

ECRI INSTITUTE INTERFACES

AIMS interfaces with ECRI Institute’s Sourcebase, UMDNS, and Alerts Tracker. The interface enables users to download the latest Sourcebase and UMDNS Codes so your lists are always up to date.

Users then link existing Codes with Sourcebase and UMDNS Codes to facilitate Alerts Tracker notifications. The latest Alerts are downloaded to AIMS, which displays the affected Tags. Work orders for those Tags are then created directly from the Alerts screen.

REAL-TIME LOCATING SYSTEM (RTLS) - AEROSCOUT, AGILETRAC, AND INTELLIGENT INSITES

RTLS interfaces help locate equipment by automatically updating equipment locations inside AIMS.  AIMS then enters the exact equipment location at the time the Work Order was created.

EXCHANGE PARTS

Exchange Parts ensures the timely return of exchangeable parts for credit by using automatic email reminders.

TEST DEVICE INTERFACES – ANSUR, BC GROUP, AND DATREND

Use Test Device Interfaces to quickly and easily perform test inspections on Equipment.  Test and completion results are automatically transferred to AIMS, ensuring standardized testing and eliminating errors associated with manual data transfer.

IMPORT TOOL

Import Tool utilizes the power and ease of Excel to edit and import PM Schedules, Work Orders, and Labor and Material lines into AIMS.

WORK ORDER INTERFACES - SERVICENOW
