Lincoln Electric System picks Schneider Electric for field-based asset management

Sponsored by

Lincoln Electric System (LES) picked Schneider Electric to implement the map assisted mobile solution, Orbit, to accurately capture, manage and unify all field data from transmission poles, while improving the efficiency of infrastructure upgrades and repairs.

LES needs to capture and manage data from various types of field inspections. Orbit solves this problem by providing the seamless integration of field data capture with the enterprise's asset record in the GIS. Field workers can easily identify, inspect, and document assets while in the field and communicate the completion of work back to the office.

This integration will support LES in its desire for improved knowledge of its infrastructure, more efficient operations, and ultimately a higher level of customer satisfaction. Orbit keeps LES's data secure by integrating with the utility's existing corporate security model so that users are required to sign on with their corporate login credentials in order to access the solution.

Powered by the Microsoft Azure platform, Orbit provides real-time capabilities to the solution, allowing updates and data to be distributed throughout the entire workforce immediately.

LES will begin capturing field data in a matter of days since Orbit is specifically designed to get utilities up-and-running quickly. As part of the Orbit Jumpstart program, a Schneider Electric representative will perform on-site delivery and configure the solution specifically for project goals of LES.
