Sensus Distributor KTI Limited selects Clevest Mobile Workforce Management
Clevest was chosen to replace KTI Limited’s paper-based system and establish a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) program
Clevest Solutions Inc., a leading provider of mobile workforce automation software for utilities, has been selected by KTI Limited for a Mobile Workforce Management solution to replace their manual, paper-based system and establish a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) program for their workers.
KTI Limited is the exclusive reseller of Sensus AMI meters for Canadian utilities. KTI provides smart grid optimization solutions for investor-owned (IOU), public and cooperative utilities operating in the electric, gas and water industries.
“As our service volume increased we realized we needed to automate our workforce to improve productivity and increase accuracy and efficiency,” stated Chris Teehan, Executive Vice President, Smart Grid Solutions for KTI Limited. “We selected Clevest as they provided a SaaS model that would meet our requirement for a fast deployment with minimal downtime, and because their Mobile Workforce Management solution supported multiple operating systems to enable a full BYOD program.”
Clevest Mobile Workforce Management is deployed in a software-as-a-service (SaaS) configuration. The deployment includes Clevest’s Smart Meter Exchange, WorkSpace for office users and dispatchers, and WorkBook for mobile (field) users. KTI takes advantage of Clevest’s quick-start templates for their meter exchange work orders.
By supporting multiple operating systems (iOS, Android and Windows), Clevest helps create a true bring-your-own-device program that allows workers to use their own mobile devices. This benefits KTI by eliminating the need to carry an inventory of devices for their part-time and casual workers.
“We are pleased to partner with KTI to deploy the latest version of our Mobile Workforce Management solution,” stated Julien Marin, VP North American Sales for Clevest. “Our software provides KTI with new efficiencies through the workforce automation system, supporting their Sensus AMI meter deployment projects.”
To date, 220 utilities and deployment vendors have selected Clevest to manage their field workers, crews and contractors. Combined, the Clevest solution has deployed 30M+ AMI meters, and serves 100M+ consumers through 12,000+ mobile workers and 1,200+ dispatchers.
