Clevest Solutions Inc. – a leading provider of smart grid mobile software solutions – has announced that its Automated Worker Location application has received a 2017 Smart Grid Product of the Year Award from IoT Evolution World. The annual award recognizes outstanding innovation across all facets of smart grid technologies.
Automated Worker Location gives utilities a cost-effective solution to locate contractors, borrowed crews, and their own crews through the workers’ smartphones and tablet devices – all without the expense of installing in-vehicle hardware.
It provides the real-time GPS location of utility workers – dramatically increasing the efficiency and productivity of smart grid field operations while instantly improving worker safety. It is especially useful during emergencies and mutual aid situations when utilities extend their contractor network and borrow crews to expedite restorations.
“We are very proud to receive this award for our smart utility solution,” stated Carol Johnston, VP Product Marketing, Clevest. “Automated Worker Location is an extension of our utility-specific product suite – which includes Mobile Workforce Managementand Smart Grid solutions – and provides worker locations in relation to the utilities assets with optional GIS overlays.”
This is the second Smart Grid Product of the Year award Clevest has been awarded. Clevest Smart Grid Visualization won the award in 2015 for a solution that helps utilities optimize field response to improve service reliability and realize the expected benefits of their smart grid investments.
“The solutions that have been selected for the 2017 Smart Grid Product of the Year Award reflect the diverse range of innovation driving this market. Congratulations to Clevest for exemplifying the best of smart grid technologies in the past year," said Carl Ford, CEO & Community Developer, Crossfire Media.
“It is my pleasure to recognize Clevest Automated Worker Location with a Smart Grid Product of the Year Award for its contribution to the advancement of smart grid technologies,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “I look forward to seeing more innovation from Clevest in the coming year.”
