Field Mobility

How The Work of Maintaining the Modern Grid Gets Done

Field Mobility Challenges of the Modern Grid

Generic Software:

Most existing field mobility solutions are
not custom-built to manage the grid

Legacy Processes:

Paper maps, legacy software, and manual processes lead to operational
and compliance gaps

Non-Industry Specific:

Workforces are being inhibited by tools that were not designed hand-in-hand
with the field

Built by the Utility for the Utility

PG&E’s Discovery

PG&E needed to more quickly develop a system to have a real-time understanding of the condition of every asset in its expansive territory of 70K square miles and an efficient, intuitive process for maintaining and restoring damaged assets.

FieldNav’s Solution

FieldNav product specifications were developed hand-in-hand with PG&E field crews and supervisory teams to optimize field usage and adoption. Leveraging a lean, design-think approach, FieldNav was built to enable real-time, geo-spatial field asset data.

This is a utility operations tool, built
by utility operations.

Field services are a critical, but often overlooked piece
of the asset management lifecycle

FieldNav Solution

Asset Data at Your Fingertips

FieldNav combines asset data from your enterprise asset management (EAM) system and spatial data from your GIS system, to deliver the most accurate information about your utility infrastructure. With our Delta Sync technology, field users can be sure they always have the most up to date picture of the field assets.

Manage and Monitor Work in One Application

FieldNav's Engage application allows field supervisors to assign and monitor any outstanding work in one, centralized application. No longer is there the need to manage work in multiple, disparate applications or paper folders. Engage provides supervisors the visibility to ensure that all their work is progressing completely and on time.

Streamlined Digital Inspections

FieldNav's Inspect application gives the field inspectors a holistic view of all work that's assigned to them and their peers, so they can most efficiently coordinate inspections. Additionally, Inspect delivers an intuitive, geospatially enabled workflow experience which makes it easy to digitally document inspection records, thus reducing the need for paper documentation. This ensures more of the inspectors' time is being spent safely maintaining assets, rather than tediously entering data.
