Over the years, a significant technology transformation is sweeping through the global energy landscape. With a sizeable percentage of the workforce being field staff, the evolution of mobile and location aware technologies is tremendously helping the energy sector to improve safety, boost productivity, and save costs. Decision makers in this arena are on the lookout for new and innovative ways to reinvent themselves and take on challenges like monitoring and managing field staff and assets.
Today, the emphasis is more on enhancing the accuracy and effectiveness of the field forces and gaining complete visibility of the field operations from a centralized control center. Mobile and location aware technologies are contributing immensely in capturing, storing, and transmitting real-time data toward creating a complete ecosystem of information exchange in real-time.
In a scenario, where efficiency and productivity are at the fore, mobile and location aware technologies assist in tracking of new generation facilities, providing help in determining the route for new transmission lines, and assessing demographic changes as part of long-term planning.
