What is Role-Based Access Control?

Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) is a data filtering utility that puts record-level access control in your hands. With RBAC, you can easily adjust settings in your MPulse CMMS software so the right people have the right access to the right records.

With Role-Based Access Control, your maintenance personnel only see the records that are relevant to their unique workloads. Your plumbers see only plumbing work orders, your electricians only the electrical work orders, and your facilities folks just the buildings and grounds records. Plus, the team responsible for maintenance on only one of your locations will see only records for that location.

Our Role-Based Access Control Feature For Mobile

MPulse Mobile works with Role-Based Access Control, enabling the maintenance team to use mobile devices to access and record critical information. Your maintenance personnel will still only see the records that are relevant to their unique workloads. Improved security features mean you can safely control access to your data, even when you aren’t in the office.

This system also lets you enter inventory items as they arrive and automatically track who is performing work. Updates are automatically synced with your MPulse CMMS once they’re back online. That gives your team everything they need to get the job done in the field or on the plant floor, even if they can’t connect to the Internet.
