Nova Scotia Power Inc. - GPS Functionality
Nova Scotia Power Inc. - GPS Functionality
On the Nova Scotia Power Inc. (NSPI) GIS Connectivity Project, field personnel travel on foot and by vehicle gathering data about asset locations and customer connectivity across the entire electrical distribution infrastructure. However, NSPI could not cover the company's extensive field operations. NSPI needed a secure mobile GIS solution that offered remote data transfer directly to its ARC GIS server software, without requiring additional travel and manual syncing.
GM Global Battery Systems Lab
GM Global Battery Systems Lab
Testing expensive battery prototypes is an around-the-clock job for the engineers at GM’s Global Battery Systems Lab. Excessive heat or high voltage can make batteries unstable or vulnerable to damage. Confirming the reason for the alarm and eliminating fault alerts sometimes requires onsite investigation, often at non-business hours.
Expertech - Capital Tool Inventory
Expertech - Capital Tool Inventory
Costly tools used to splice fiber optic cables are an important part of Expertech’s operational and capitalized expenses, but the company did not have an automated system in place to track their tools and optimize their usage. The existing data in its tracking system was inaccurate and required manual updating, making it essential for the company to implement an efficient process to track and follow up on its capital tool inventory.
