Maximize asset performance, improve workforce productivity and safety and reduce costs
Improve asset performance, reduce downtime and improve customer satisfaction by proactively managing asset planning, implementation and maintenance throughout the entire lifecycle. Improve field workforce productivity through more efficient scheduling and dispatch of field workforce and real-time, two-way communication between the field and dispatch center.
How it works
Maximize operational performance in two key areas: your physical assets and your workforce. Using a cloud-based data management and visualization platform, you can track virtually all information about your assets in a single place. Predictive modeling and advanced analytics capabilities provide near-real-time asset status and long-term projections of maintenance requirements. Meanwhile, mobility offerings help you optimize the utilization of your workforce via more efficient scheduling and dispatch, improved real-time communication between the field and dispatch center and timely access to vital work order information. Together, these solutions help decrease operation and maintenance costs, reduce downtime and improve field workforce productivity and safety.
