safety products utility safety utility supplies Schneider Electric

Utility supplies: Schneider Electric announced that it has been selected by Lincoln Electric System (LES) to implement the task-based, map assisted mobile solution, Orbit, to accurately capture, manage and unify all field data from transmission poles, while improving the efficiency of infrastructure upgrades and repairs.

LES needs to capture and manage data from various types of field inspections. Orbit solves this problem by providing the seamless integration of field data capture with the enterprise’s asset record in the GIS. Field workers can easily identify, inspect, and document assets while in the field and communicate the completion of work back to the office. This integration will support LES in its desire for improved knowledge of its infrastructure, more efficient operations, and ultimately a higher level of customer satisfaction. Orbit keeps LES’s data secure by integrating with the utility¹s existing corporate security model so that users are required to sign on with their corporate login credentials in order to access the solution.

With easy-to-use mobile applications for both Windows and iOS devices, Orbit provides utility workers with an experience that is flexible, intuitive, and similar in look and functionality to devices used in personal lives.
