iOS 5.1+

Cost: Free

Company: Schneider Electric USA, Inc.

Website: www.schneider-electric.us

This application contains simple menu-driven parameter sets that walk users through the drive configuration process. Digitizing the start-up and programming of a drive streamlines the process, allowing customers to store pertinent drive information in a single location, and facilitates a standard drive configuration throughout a facility.

Infor EAM Mobile for Phone allows organizations to perform functions such as View Work Order, Create Work Request with Image, Book Labor, Issue part, View Work Order map and route and more. Courtesy: InforInfor EAM Mobile Connected

iOS 6.0+, Android 4.0.3+

Cost: Free

Company: Infor Global Solutions, Inc.

"Infor EAM Mobile for Phone" allows organizations to perform functions such as View Work Order, Create Work Request with Image, Book Labor, Issue part, View Work Order map and route and more. Infor EAM version 8.5, or higher, is required to work with this version. Network connection is required for the app. A database script may be required to support certain version of Infor EAM.

This app calculates the efficiency of a compressed air system and identifies potential energy savings to provide the system's efficiency quotient. Courtesy: Quincy CompressorEQ Energy Efficiency Analyzer

iOS 4.0+

Cost: Free

Company: Quincy Compressor

Calculate the overall efficiency of a compressed air system and identify potential energy savings with this easy 5-step process. The result is the system's efficiency quotient, or EQ rating. This tool is a calculation "worksheet" that provides an estimate of overall operating costs, system efficiency level and potential savings from having an complete EQ analysis performed. 

ExakTime Mobile allows users to monitor hours and activities, check GPS locations and verify employee IDs for every time punch, and attach field notes and photos to job sites for instant viewing back at the office. Courtesy: ExakTimeExakTime Mobile/PocketClock

iOS 7.0+, Android 2.3.3+

Cost: Free

Company: ExakTime, Inc.

ExakTime Mobile allows users to monitor hours and activities, check GPS locations and verify employee IDs for every time punch, and attach field notes and photos to job sites for instant viewing back at the office. The app automatically syncs with our cloud-based time tracking software, making it easier to manage labor expenses, stay compliant, and improve workforce productivity from any web-based device. Data is easily shared with the accounting program, which simplifies the payroll process.
