Western Farmers Electric Cooperative (WFEC) has improved operational accountability and reporting by extending Motion Computing's Esri geospatial information system (GIS) into the field on Motion Rugged Tablets with Blue Dot Mobile Field Service Solutions. Motion and WFEC shared details on the project at the Esri International Users Conference last week in San Diego.
“WFEC has been an ideal customer to work with since the beginning,” said Scott Rehling, Partner Manager at Motion. “WFEC had clearly defined project goals, had a solid understanding of the specific workflows they were automating and had a specific set of technical requirements. In addition to measuring candidate capabilities against defined goals and requirements, WFEC included end-users in their device selection, which ultimately led to the benefits WFEC is reaping today. End-user acceptance is a key part of overall mobile solution success.”
WFEC and Motion presented “Mobilizing Utility Field Workers with GIS: Lessons Learned” on Thursday, July 17 in the session “Expanding GIS Across the Enterprise.”
