Mobile technology offers opportunities for greater efficiencies. Those efficiencies are being realized by many industries, including those that harness renewable energy.
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.
Mobile technology streamlines the entire process of assigning work, inspecting infrastructure, performing maintenance and repair, and reporting and storing findings. The capability improves workflows by providing workers in the field and their supervisors in the office the ability to access work assignments and receive status reports on infrastructure in real-time. It eliminates bottlenecks and compresses cycle times. In short, it saves money, which in turn lowers the cost of electricity produced from alternative energy. Ultimately, this technology contributes to reduced reliance upon fossil fuels to meet the world's energy needs.
