Utility tools: Clevest Solutions Inc., a provider of mobile workforce automation software including smart grid operations exclusively for the utility industry, has joined Sierra Wireless's recently-launched Solution Partner Program to provide joint wireless solutions to the utility industry. As a SPP Gold Partner, Clevest will offer Sierra Wireless AirLink® wireless gateways and modems with its mobile workforce management (MWFM) and automatic vehicle location (AVL) solution, which gives utilities a single mobile platform for wirelessly managing virtually any type of field work.

Don Gibson, Senior Manager of Business Partners at Clevest indicated, "We've worked together with Sierra Wireless since Clevest was launched in 2006. Fundamentally, AirLink products are at the core of Clevest's mobile platform for the utility industry and the company's hardware is arguably among the very best in its class and price range. Now, as a Solution Partner, we have an excellent platform to foster a more strategic relationship between our organizations, to grow the capabilities of our mobile suite and to ensure the wireless technologies and products our customers implement deliver exceptional reliability and performance."

"The Solution Partner Program is designed to provide our partners with the resources to create and market wireless solutions to key verticals, including the utility industry,² explained Brian Anderson, Vice President of Marketing, Enterprise Solutions for Sierra Wireless. "With over 125 utility customers today, Clevest has a track record of deploying outstanding mobile solutions using Sierra Wireless hardware and software. Clevest is a great fit for the program, where we can promote to utilities the value of working with both organizations."

Using real-time, secure and highly reliable wireless communication, utility dispatchers and supervisors use Clevest's mobile software solutions to assign over 100 different types of orders to the field and to manage field operations directly from a map-based view of vehicles and GIS assets. By closing the gap between the field and the office, Clevest's mobile solution helps utilities drive greater efficiencies from field operations, improve responsiveness to routine and emergency work, enhance overall safety for mobile workers and provide consistently higher levels of customer service.

Clevest's recently-announced next-generation MWFM solution has out-of-the box support for AirLink wireless gateways and modems.
