Mobile working can be of benefit to businesses in a wide range of industries. When you have to make sure that millions of litres of water is supplied through a number of networks across the UK and is treated too, meeting the needs of many businesses and households, an effective system of working is particularly needed.
When you need your reporting system to be accurate and any leaks need to be found straight away for field engineers to be sent out to fix the problem, mobile technology solutions are needed to address this issue.
You cannot afford to rely on an outdated paper system of reporting if you want to provide a top level service to all your customers. Therefore, PDA solutions may be the answer. With these mobile devices your field workers can file real-time reports which are sent directly to your main headquarters. The information received can then be acted upon immediately, which will improve the overall effectiveness of the way your business operates.
GPS technology built into the handset can work with the software to deliver fast and accurate results and for the water utilities industry in particular, with a high number of remote workers, this quicker reporting time of information and greater degree of accountability is very much welcome.
