What is Global Search Navigation?

With global search navigation, users can search an entire database from a single search field, enabling easy access to any record. With global search, you can get right to records by entering simple keywords or using powerful advanced search features.

MPulse’s Global Search Navigation tool takes our CMMS users right where you need to go in a flash. Advanced search functionality gives you access to any record. It also works with our Barcode Scanning feature.

Improved security features mean you can safely control access to your data, even when you aren’t in the office.
