Global energy management specialist Lincoln Electric System (LES) has selected Schneider Electric’s task-based, map-assisted mobile solution Orbit.
According to the company, the Schenider solution for utilities and telecommunications will help it to accurately capture, manage and unify all field data from transmission poles, while improving the efficiency of infrastructure upgrades and repairs.
Orbit allows LES to capture and manage data from various types of field inspections by integrating field data capture with the enterprise's asset record in the GIS.
Field workers can identify, inspect, and document assets while in the field on Windows and other devices and communicate the completion of work back to the office.
"Orbit offered the most economical way for us to consistently handle additional field work processes without a lengthy or costly implementation," said David Miller, manager of Geospatial Technologies at LES.
Orbit integrates with the utility's existing corporate security model so that users are required to sign on with their corporate login credentials to access the solution.
As the Schneider Electric solution runs on Microsoft’s Azure cloud solution, it allows updates and data to be distributed throughout the entire workforce immediately.
"With Orbit, Schneider Electric is providing LES with easy integration of field inspection data and assets, eliminating the delay and cost of data conversion," said Jon Arnold, managing director, Worldwide Utilities Industry at Microsoft. "Since Orbit utilises the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, data-sharing and integration will be much easier and more cost-effective for LES."
