GPS Insight, a provider of GPS tracking solutions for
co-op, municipal and commercial fleets, has partnered with Partner Software.
By integrating GPS Insight’s tracking technology into
Partner Software’s Map Viewer, utility cooperatives can better track their
resources and service teams, giving them the ability to deploy resources in the
most efficient and effective means possible.
Buckeye Rural Electric Cooperative in Rio Grande, Ohio,
uses GPS Insight in conjunction with Partner Software.
We integrate our vehicle data from GPS Insight with our
Outage Reporting system, Command Center for metering, and Work Order system.
When we click on a truck number, it zooms to its location on our Partner map.
We instantly know the line and pole and the address where the truck is located.
A picture of the truck on the map tells us the type of truck, as well. During a
storm, this is a huge time saver for Dispatch,” said Jeffrey Tackett, vice
president of engineering and operations, Buckeye.
Having all of these tools on the same familiar screen
makes it easy for Buckeyes employees to know where on its system the linemen
are working. Having truck locations on its system maps allows everyone here to
view the same map used by all of its software programs.
In addition to the Partner interface, GPS Insight
provides a wide range of historical Reports and real-time Alerts. Overall, it’s
a powerful fleet management system which helps ensure the safety and efficiency
of its crews.
People from other utilities are quite impressed when they
see how easy it is to access this information from any computer on its LAN.
The company’s tracking technology enhances the efficiency
of cooperative crews by providing real-time workforce visibility.
By integrating GPS location-based data with detailed
Partner Software maps, our utility customers realize benefits including
increased safety, shorter response times, and work order scheduling and
tracking,” said Joe Vidmar, senior account manager, GPS Insight.
