FortisBC Implements Mobility Solution

Tensing has commenced the roll-out of Tensing Mobile GIS at FortisBC Energy Inc. Roll out at FortisBC started in July and will continue through to October 2011. Up to 450 mobile employees at FortisBC will use Tensing Mobile GIS to perform maintenance work, respond to emergencies and access proprietary data.

FortisBC started the search for a mobile GIS solution in a company wide effort to provide accurate and current GIS data to field users. The addition of Tensing Mobile GIS will streamline the flow of information from office to field.

Integration with FortisBC’s AMFM and DCRS systems was a critical factor in the selection process. Built on Microsoft .NET, Tensing Mobile GIS opens up to almost any back office system.
