Utility supplies: Clevest Solutions Inc. -- a provider of smart grid mobile software solutions – offers the Automated Worker Location App. It gives utilities a cost-effective solution to locate contractors, borrowed crews, and their own crews through the workers’ smartphones and tablet devices – all without the expense of installing in-vehicle hardware.
It provides the real-time GPS location of utility workers – dramatically increasing the efficiency and productivity of smart grid field operations while instantly improving worker safety. It is especially useful during emergencies and mutual aid situations when utilities extend their contractor network and borrow crews to expedite restorations.
Automated Worker Location is an extension of the company’s utility-specific product suite – which includes Mobile Workforce Management and Smart Grid solutions – and provides worker locations in relation to the utilities assets with optional GIS overlays.
Automated Worker Location – how it works:
• Worker locations are viewable in the Clevest system and optionally on an outage map for faster outage restoration
• Real-time location awareness of contractors, borrowed crews, or owned crews to instantly and efficiently address field issues
• Faster restoration of outages and contractor compliance for increased customer satisfaction
• Quickly resolve investigations and customer complaints with worker route history and post-incident breadcrumbs
• View worker locations in relation to the utilities assets with optional GIS overlays
• Improve worker safety and worker compliance to assigned areas through powerful geofence and landmark capabilities
• Ensure the appropriate operations personnel are notified of events that require immediate attention through exception reports, alerts, and email notifications
• Warn crews in the field of approaching weather conditions
• Quickly and effectively validate contractor invoices
