Real-time visibility and control over field operations
Designed specifically for utilities, Clevest Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) gives dispatchers and supervisors the real-time location of vehicles and their occupants alongside their asset infrastructure. Clevest AVL helps utilities realize substantial efficiencies by directing and managing their field operations, and improving the safety of their crews.
Office users can easily:
- Track key vehicle information (location history, speed, engine diagnostics, PTO status)
- Determine the closest vehicle to a job
- Monitor the progress of work being performed in the field
- Address any issues that may occur
- Automate the fuel tax and PTO reporting process
- Generate reports
"By integrating Clevest AVL with their mobile workforce management system, our team in the office has real-time visibility into field operations and can manage field workers directly from the AVL map. We now have a single mobile solution that unifies our enterprise applications to support all types of utility field work, from fast-paced outage tickets to the full range of service work we perform. The combined technologies afford us significant new opportunities to increase our overall productivity and service delivery."

"When natural disasters occur, cooperatives often call upon their fellow cooperatives to help restore power. While DPC members have been assisting each other for decades, dispatching and communication are major challenges. Particularly with borrowed resources, which leads to delays and safety concerns. With Clevest AVL we are able to view and manage shared resources directly from a map view, greatly enhancing our efforts to restore power safely and efficiently during emergencies."
Pierce Pepin Cooperative Services (Dairyland Power Corp)
"With the Clevest AVL solution, we now have full visibility into the location and activities of our vehicles and wireless communication lets us better connect and coordinate the field and the office. Real-time insight into field activities means we can respond much more quickly in the field, and with more accurate information. It also gives us a flexible platform to easily accommodate our future mobility initiatives."
"With the CFOS program, we were chartered with building a corporate wireless mobility infrastructure to do just that. With the Clevest solution, we are lowering fuel consumption, better controlling vehicle maintenance, repair and operating costs, enhancing driver productivity, and providing a safer working environment. We also have a scalable, flexible platform in place that we can adapt to accommodate future vehicle-related wireless mobility initiatives."

Clevest AVL Express Lane
Clevest Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) instantly gives dispatchers and supervisors the real-time location of vehicles for optimal fleet health and field operations. Our AVL Express Lane plug-and-play solution includes everything you need to get started for a quick deployment and quick payback. There’s no up-front capital costs as the hardware and hosting are included in a convenient monthly fee. And there’s no waiting for the next budget cycle as the solution typically pays for itself with the average fuel and productivity savings generated in the first quarter of use.
Automated Worker Location
Clevest’s Automated Worker Location application gives utilities a cost-effective solution to locate contractors, borrowed crews, and their own crews through the workers’ smartphones and tablet devices – without the need to install in-vehicle hardware. This easy, cost-effective solution provides a real-time GPS location of workers in the Clevest Mobile Workforce Management system, helping increase the efficiency and productivity of field operations while improving worker safety. Worker locations are viewable in the system and optionally on an outage map through a MultiSpeak® export of worker locations.
Integrated Mobile Workforce Management
By combining Clevest Mobile Workforce Management with Clevest Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) on the same award-winning mobile platform, a utility’s vehicle is transformed into an intelligent vehicle-as-a-hub, providing the ability to create a crew hotspot around the vehicle using WiFi-enabled, in-vehicle hardware for optimal crew productivity and efficiency. The combined solution provides crews in the field with instant access to back office information and allows them to download and upload their work and synchronize maps in real-time.
WorkSpace Office app
An application for dispatchers, schedulers, administrators and office supervisors to manage their entire field operations safely and efficiently. As an HTML5 app, WorkSpace allows faster deployment as users only need access to a browser versus an installed app.
WorkBook Mobile app
A cross-platform mobile application that empowers field technicians and supervisors with smart workflows, eforms, and interfaces to enterprise systems – along with integrated maps to visualize their work in relation to the utility’s asset infrastructure.
Clevest’s Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) solution includes a Mutual Aid module to mitigate the risks and costs associated with sharing resources during major outages. This provides a real-time view of vehicles, equipment and crews, instantly reconciles owned and borrowed vehicle usage and activity records, and drives accurate and timely reporting to regulators.
