Modernising utilities with cloud, mobile & IoT

Legacy IT and communication systems pose significant challenges for utilities, including difficulty integrating new technologies, lack of scalability, security risks, and limited mobility. These challenges can hinder innovation, limit agility, and result in higher costs and suboptimal performance. Utility operators must address legacy systems and invest in new cloud-based solutions, mobile applications, IoT devices and technologies that can replace and comply with legacy systems.

How tech empowers utilities in a tight talent market

Utility companies face a skilled labour shortage as experienced workers retire, challenging attracting and retaining talent in a competitive labour market. To address this, utilities must invest in training and development programs to ensure their workers have the necessary skills. Rugged mobile devices can provide significant benefits, enabling engineers to access critical site information and gain support in real-time, improving their efficiency and accuracy in diagnosing and addressing issues.

How Airacom connects frontline heroes for faster fixes

The lack of communication and collaboration tools can be a significant challenge for frontline utility engineers, particularly when managing assets and coordinating activities in the field. Airacom push-to-talk, unified communications, and rugged mobile devices can all play a role in overcoming these challenges with real-time voice and messaging collaboration combined with access to internal ERP systems, customer information and diagrams to work on the problem on the first visit.

Digital tools keep utilities ahead of the curve

The impact of extreme weather and natural disasters can result in reactive maintenance and worker safety risks, requiring utility companies to balance the need for restoring services with safety and access challenges. Adopting digital transformation can help companies stay ahead by enabling predictive maintenance and real-time data analysis, while mobile devices provide access to critical information, and intrinsically safe tablets ensure worker safety in hazardous environments.
