Arcos crew manager software has new logistics features

Arcos has released new logistics features for its Arcos Crew Manager software to give utility storm managers a way to pre-arrange and track internal and external crews’ lodging, meals, staging areas, equipment and vehicles during major events.

Arcos Crew Manager creates a centralized database for utilities to position crews, contractors and mutual assistance crews during storm recovery efforts.

Crew Manager provides utility personnel with access to a computer-generated board with point-and-click graphics for visually organizing and mobilizing crews for restoration events. The board links to a centralized database and can be updated in the field via smartphones, tablets, PCs and other storm team touch-screen interactive whiteboards.

Storm managers, executives and field personnel can instantly see where crews are working and, if authorized, reassign them as restoration progresses. Crew Manager also tracks the cumulative hours a crew has worked and a minute-by-minute account of how long each crewmember has been on the clock.

Utilities such as ComEd and Iberdrola USA note that having a centralized crew management database for analysis plays a role in restoring power quickly to customers and reducing storm costs.
