United Power (Brighton, Colorado, U.S.) lineworkers have reported an increase in time-savings and productivity thanks to the use of the TruckMap system from har*GIS, LLC (Centennial, Colorado, U.S.)
TruckMap now exports information from United Power's ESRI ArcGIS facilities database, from the customer information system, from a transformer database, and from circuit and manhole drawings, then provides that information to field crews via rugged tablet PCs. The system allows integrated viewing and querying of the data from these different systems, and enables field personnel to quickly locate any customer record and instantly view distribution equipment.
Lineworkers and field crews report significant time-savings thanks to the ability to quickly locate facilities where upgrade, repair or expansion is needed, as well as increased efficiency, particularly in outage situations.
