Integrating Mobile Control with both outage management and workforce management systems is a key component in SageQuest’s approach to the utilities market
Cleveland, OH (Vocus) February 12, 2010
SageQuest, LLC announces that its Mobile Control GPS vehicle management solution has achieved MultiSpeak® certification for interoperability with Milsoft Utility Solutions’ DisSPatch outage management system (OMS) using MultiSpeak® Version 4.
By integrating Mobile Control with DisSPatch OMS from Milsoft, both companies have taken information critical to each of their customers and combined it to deepen analysis they deliver independently. Utilities can now efficiently prioritize crews to outage locations expediting restoration of service to their customers.
"Integrating Mobile Control with both outage management and workforce management systems is a key component in SageQuest’s approach to the utilities market,” according to Doug Engerman, Vice President of Business Development, SageQuest. "Accomplishing MultiSpeak certification with Milsoft's DisSPatch solution was a natural priority because of our shared commitment to improving workforce effectiveness for utility customers.”
SageQuest’s Mobile Control provides visibility of workers and vehicles in the field with real-time updates of vehicle GPS location data to Milsoft’s DisSPatch Client Map. Together they provide enhanced awareness and increased operational efficiency, while supporting the safety of their mobile technicians.
"This integration with SageQuest's Mobile Control is another example of how committed Milsoft is to no holds barred interoperability with progressive and visionary industry partners,” says Luis Malave, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer for Milsoft. "Milsoft is passionate about supporting MultiSpeak, as we feel that is the fastest and most cost efficient way to deliver the value and usefulness of the software solutions that we deliver to our customers."
