Renewable energy projects and infrastructure can be great distances from the company’s headquarters or satellite offices. Supervisors, technicians and other workers in the field need technology that will allow them to maximize productivity, even though they are far from their desk. They need tools to help them work as efficiently as possible.
Utilization of smartphones and smartpad devices by field agents is crucial for companies engaged in renewable energy projects. The ability to use mobile technology increases productivity of workers inspecting or performing maintenance or repair on wind turbines, solar panels or other renewable energy project infrastructure.
They can receive instructions from the office to travel to a location where problems are being experienced or where an inspection is required. Some systems can be programmed to provide automatic notifications of the need to conduct an inspection in a certain location. Through these programmed notifications, the organization can map out regular inspections of their infrastructure systematically. Work crews can receive inspection assignments through their mobile devices, eliminating the possibility that a duplicate inspection will be done by another crew.
