Telogis has launched Telogis for Utilities, an industry-specific extension of its award-winning location intelligence platform. The Telogis platform provides cloud-based telematics, dynamic routing, commercial navigation, real-time work order management and mobile integration services for some of the world’s largest electric utilities and utility contractors with substantial numbers of mobile workers.
“With an industry-wide focus on safety and heightened visibility into where and how teams are performing in the field, Telogis for Utilities was built specifically to address the challenges that this industry faces daily,” said Mark Wallin, vice president, for product management.
“Being able to pinpoint where teams are, know their job status, connect with them easily and even share information with partners and contractors all on one screen – especially during adverse weather conditions – can be a mission-critical component to keeping teams safe and getting the power back on.”
Telogis for Utilities’ advanced capabilities work with the back office and the teams in the field to improve safety and drive productivity while delivering real-time visibility into daily operations. When bad weather hits and response and recovery teams are dispatched, Telogis for Utilities is at its best providing the ability to ‘share’ access to a user’s account so that utility partners and contractors can also visualise the exact locations, status and even critical mobile assets for any given job – all on one screen.
The software also supports advanced integrations with Outage Management Systems (OMS) and SAP.
Greater visibility also lends to a utility’s ability to keep better tabs on how much a vehicle is idling or speeding, vehicle diagnostics, the driving habits of its teams and job arrivals and departures, all of which can all be configured specifically for the needs of the individual utility company.
