BOA is a company that doesn’t like to stand still when it comes to innovation, so to complement the successful launch of the BOApod, BOA is now ready to introduce the first phase of the BOAhub.
The BOAhub is a truly multi platform, multi device application that allows you to select and build your own hoses, order your hydraulic hose and fittings online, and accurately manage your inventory to assist with asset management. It is available on both Apple and Android phones and tablets, as well as a web app.
A key feature of the BOAhub is the innovative Hosemaker. It all begins with selecting your ideal hose type, hose group and hose diameter. Once you have selected a hose to assemble you are able to choose the correct fitting by selecting the angle you require. You then measure the thread physically with veneers obtaining the correct internal diameter measurement, which then means you can select from a list of available threads, intelligently filtered to fit the hose you are building. This is all supported by a help feature that makes sure the angles of your fittings are correct. As you design the hose, you create a database of hose recipes, which allows you to reduce wasted time when a hose blows and also contributes to making preventative maintenance easy.
Another great feature of the BOAhub app is the mobile ‘scan to order’ feature. Every BOA set up has labeled bins, which means you can reorder inventory and add parts to hose assemblies just by scanning the labels. All key features work offline and update as soon as you are back in coverage.
All of this is just the first part of the BOAhub application. The next phase offers the innovative features such as the ability to match a hose assembly against an asset, along with an intelligent system of overlaying your asset images with a key, that hose recipes can be matched too.
This is all part of building a helpful database of your asset recipes locked against a specific make and model. Keep an eye out for these developments.
Give the team at BOA a call to talk about this and other innovations to help you turn wasted time into profit. 0800 20 20 20 | [email protected]
