TransGrid, one of the largest high-voltage electricity transmission network operators in Australia, will implement an Enterprise Asset Management solution as well as applications for human resources and supply chain management.

Under the new agreement, TransGrid will implement Mincom Ellipse 8. The organization will also deploy the Mincom Mobility suite of integrated field-enablement applications, including Mincom Mobile Worker and Mincom Mobile Inspector, to improve the efficiency and productivity of its dynamic workforce.

With Mincom’s enterprise solutions, TransGrid can achieve visibility, availability and return on nearly $6 billion worth of electricity assets, which provide electricity to more than three million households and businesses across New South Wales (NSW) and the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). TransGrid’s assets include 91 substations; 12,600 kilometres of transmission lines; 36,000 transmission-line structures; and a workforce of more than 1,000 employees.

“TransGrid is committed to supplying an efficient, safe and reliable supply of electricity – now and in the future,” said Tony Meehan, Executive General Manager of Finance and Information Systems. “Maximizing the performance of our physical infrastructure and workforce is critical to meeting this objective. Mincom’s field-enablement applications are tightly integrated with Ellipse 8, which will assist TransGrid’s asset and work management processes in the field, where the work is being done.”

Mincom Mobility is a suite of end-to-end field-enablement applications that improves the decision-making and productivity of field-force operations using mobile devices such as laptops, tablets, PDAs and more. Fully integrated with Mincom’s Ellipse solution for EAM, Mincom's mobile workforce management solutions allow field personnel to perform the right job, with the right resources, wherever they are.
