Jan 28th, 2014

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.

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 fieldwork.

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.
