Landis+Gyr partners with GeoPal Solutions to offer utilities a complete AMI Field Operations Management solution
Zug, Switzerland, September 18, 2019: Landis+Gyr (LAND.SW) strengthens its offering for smart metering field operations support by combining its extensive Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) deployment and operations experience with an Android mobile application and digital platform hosted by GeoPal Solutions.
The newly introduced Field Operations Manager solution, available immediately from Landis+Gyr throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), is designed to provide utilities with a comprehensive set of tools for managing field teams tasked with the deployment of smart meters during rollouts or during the operation of their AMI. It improves efficiency and results in the field by digitally connecting field workers with a utility’s deployment managers and offering shared tools for planning, scheduling and monitoring deployment tasks.
“We are delighted to partner with GeoPal Solutions to strengthen our offering with the Field Operations Manager for smart metering deployments and maintenance,” commented Christian Giroux, Solutions Product Manager at Landis+Gyr. “Utilities require increasingly more cost-effective and efficient means of rolling out and operating smart metering infrastructures. This solution meets that need by combining our own field operations expertise together with GeoPal’s proven field operations software and web-based platform.”
Use of the Field Operations Manager replaces all paper documentation for field task management, improving the quality of field service by preventing human error. It also provides end-to-end security of deployments, and interfaces with a utility’s CIS or ERP system to process work orders and return the result of completed tasks. The solution is already being piloted with Landis+Gyr customers in the Nordics.
“GeoPal Solutions is focused on delivering solutions to complex and dynamic field operations problems where traditional approaches lack the flexibility required, and where the cost of a bespoke application would be too costly or time-consuming,” said Paul Coyle, Commercial Director, GeoPal Solutions. “The use of our software with smart meters in Landis+Gyr’s Field Operations Manager solution is an ideal application for our technology, and we see this as only the first step in a partnership that could deliver even greater benefits to utilities in the future.”
