We've combined the benefits of cloud and mobile technologies to provide always-on reliability for public utilities and private industry to meet workforce and asset management initiatives.
With the power of HTML5, there are no operating system requirements. Utility Cloud only requires a computer or mobile device, an internet connection, and an HTML5 compatible browser to access the application. Utility Cloud is device independent and can operate on many mobile devices including tablets, smart phones, and notebook computers.
This revolutionary cloud application uses advanced technologies to provide you with access to your data from anywhere. Data is entered once at the point of origin and immediately available to staff and other business systems across your organization — say goodbye to those clipboards and log sheets. Team members are aware of what work is to be done and where; with real-time knowledge of activities, personnel and resources, sparing duplication of effort and cumbersome coordination routines. Work can also be completed on or offline, and synced when a connection is a available, increasing productivity.
Bring efficiency to daily operations — specific to the task at hand — no layering on of expensive "bells and whistles." Quickly access data when and where you need it most. Collaborate through real-time access to information — engineering drawings, manuals, operational data, best practices guides, photos, and how-to videos are just a finger gesture or click away. There’s no need to cart around volumes of manuals and instruction booklets, and no need for a secondary computer for accessing systems — just a single ruggedized lightweight mobile device.
Deployed in the cloud and delivered as a service, Utility Cloud adds value to your IT investments by providing valuable data and enterprise system integration with minimal IT support overhead requirements. Our award winning IT infrastructure ensures enterprise-grade data reliability and security. All you need is a web browser and a network connection.
Easily transition from device to device, and pick up where you left off. Track your workflows and manage your assets across a large geographic area. Use the work order management tool to better manage maintenance activities, access real time SCADA data to optimize labor resources during routine inspections, and generate reports from your data using a Google API.
With a dynamic geospatial interface incorporating the power of Google maps to display infrastructure, equipment, and workforce assets in real-time, the Badger Interface may leverage your existing GIS database or serve as a standalone GIS system. Put every asset you own on the map — it’s as easy as a few taps on a touch screen.
Utility Cloud is designed with the field worker in mind and taps into the native capabilities of the mobile device such as GIS, camera, mic, compass, and gyroscope, to provide an unparalleled user experience. You can incorporate Utility Cloud into the operational environment you’ve already established, with little or no training required.
Security is important. Your data is secure with the same security standards in place for modern banking systems. Encrypted and unique logins by all users, data is stored and backed up on multiple servers located in different regions of the United States, and the application virtualized for each user with backup redundancy to minimize any potential downtime.
We use Virtual Private Networking (VPN) to provide our clients with secure communication links over the web. Ensure confidentiality, sender authentication, message integrity, by using IPSec (IP Security) for encryption and authentication of all IP packets at the network layer. We are committed to keeping our clients data reliable, secure and safe from malicious acts.
Utility Cloud is available in a range of subscription plans to accommodate the workflow automation needs of any organization – however large or small. That way, you pay only for the features you use, and have the ability to scale your user base as well as add functionality as needed. As a subscription service, Utility Cloud is always current. There’s never a need to download and install the latest version. Updates are done automatically behind the scenes, and each time you access the application, it is up-to-date and ready to go!
I never have to worry about not having that information at our fingertips or that the information will be lost. It is now saved in a way that is permanent and allows anytime access.
