Field Service for the Utilities Industry
Gomocha’s FMP360 is the ideal tool to help you win quick and win big.
The utilities industry is facing a number of daunting challenges across the globe. And thanks to new business models and the digital transformation, the utility industry’s focus is shifting. Once primarily concerned with the steady production and delivery of energy, water and gas, utility companies are increasingly concerned about retaining customers and managing the lifecycle of their assets. To that end, many utility companies are now aiming to become solution suppliers, consultants, planners, and customer partners.
Field Service Challenges in the Utilities Industry
Route and work order optimization.
The expanded role that utilities play also comes with a greater demand on their resources. Without an intelligent and comprehensive system for allocating work orders and optimizing routes, it will be difficult if not impossible to react to all service requests in a timely manner, much less in real time.
Demand for new technologies.
Energy companies are often responsible for installing and monitoring meters — and with many customers making the switch to smart meters, there will be a surge in demand for this service and a need to accommodate it with a sufficient number of skilled technicians.
Workforce forecasting and capacity management.
As the utility industry becomes more deeply involved in digital transformation, it will need to expand its expertise and that of its workforce to meet service demands. This will require an intelligent system for managing and maintaining an overview of the skill set, availability and location of every service technicians.
Integrating new energy sources.
Wind and hydroelectric power plants are technically complex systems, which are subjected to a wide range of highly variable conditions during operation. This means that the need for service is difficult to anticipate and uniquely dispersed depending on geography. Plants and equipment require regular inspection and maintenance to ensure operational efficiency and minimal downtime.
