Real-time visibility into a utility’s owned and borrowed resources during emergencies
Clevest supports crucial mutual aid programs and offers utilities a real-time mobile solution to view and manage shared resources on a single, web-based map—greatly improving their efforts to restore services safely and efficiently.
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. The solution 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.
Safely and effectively share resources
Borrowed resources and contractors are often unfamiliar with the borrowing utility’s territory, policies and procedures and might drive into potentially unsafe situations, which can raise safety concerns, congest radio networks, and cause delays in restoration of service. Dispatch and supervisory staff of the borrowing utility can view the location of their own crews as well as loaned resources on the map before undertaking potentially dangerous restoration work.
