ICOMMM’s technology is used to assess maintenance and capital improvements requirements and helps to protect water and sanitary system infrastructure while preventing environmental damage. It is fully integrated with geographical information systems (GIS) and ties in mapping with work management tools. Apisphere’s Geo-Enabled Mobility (GEM) platform will be integrated with ICOMMM’s infrastructure asset management software to enhance its location-awareness capabilities. Apisphere will enhance field force automation and efficiency by providing targeted geographical information in real-time, helping maintenance crews to immediately access specific relevant information when assessing infrastructure requirements.
“Our utility customers require accurate, immediate data to maintain water and sanitary systems, and to quickly respond to service calls and emergency situations,” said Steven Line, CEO of ICOMMM. “Apisphere’s ability to integrate real-time location-awareness capabilities into our solution enables ICOMMM to significantly enhance the precision of the information we provide to our customers and help them to more efficiently manage service, maintenance and repair resources.”
Apisphere’s GEM platform will also provide ICOMMM’s customers with real-time navigation capabilities including directions to service stops, route optimization, mobile resource location and tracking, and will automate work assignments based on where available resources are located. This will significantly reduce maintenance vehicle road miles and subsequent fuel consumption therefore enabling water and sanitary utilities to better control costs.
“Real-time location-awareness capabilities are essential in the management of any mobile workforce,” said Craig Harper, CEO, Apisphere. “By providing utility customers with the ability to make quick decisions on how to deploy mobile field reps with accurate, timely information that is specific to the location in question, ICOMMM is elevating its customers’ experience and enhancing the efficiency of its business.”
