With increasing demand and aging infrastructure there is increased pressure on utilities operators to increase utilization, reliability and lower OPEX costs. Utilities are looking to new technologies to drive performance gains. Assets and field force are the two biggest expenses for all utilities and utilities services companies. Knowing were your workers and assets are, their condition, and productivity you are receiving is key to driving down costs and increasing return.
Technology drives improvements in safety today. Just being OSHA compliant is not enough. Keeping workers away from tree falls and restricting hazardous machines to only those properly trained are two areas that are under-served today. Dramatic safety improvements can be achieved through correlating data already available to you and using machine learning and data virtualization to draw out hazardous conditions that can lead to accidents.

Add in opportunities for increased safety, reduced labor fraud, and the ability for real-time reporting of worker performance and the opportunities for savings are dramatic.
So Optiff focuses on 6 areas of utility field force optimization. These are:
