Delivers smartphone capabilities to effectively manage contractors and borrowed crews, along with significant user interface improvements

B-Samsung-Galaxy-S7_WB-MapClevest has released the latest version of its Mobile Workforce Management solution for utilities.

Release 5.3 includes support for smartphones in the award-winning WorkBook mobile app, allowing Clevest to provide its software solutions on all types of devices on Windows, iOS or Android operating systems.

Utility supervisors in particular will benefit from using WorkBook on smartphones to effectively manage their contractors and borrowed crews – which is essential in emergency situations.

Release 5.3 also delivers significant user interface enhancements in both WorkBook and the company’s WorkSpace office app. The 5.3 user experience includes special indicators and configurable order icons, saving and sharing of WorkSpace views, free-text search, color-coded geofences and in-row editing of grid repeatables. These highly usable features will improve the productivity and efficiency of both field and office utility workers.

We continue to benefit from the invaluable customer and market feedback we receive. Our latest Mobile Workforce Management was developed from this feedback and will increasingly solve utilities’ operational challenges in a demanding environment where they are consistently forced to do more with less.
