What's Your Fleet Size?
Both private and public utility organizations—whether electric or gas—face unique challenges. They must be capable of responding to disaster and storm events, while their day-to-day operations require an emphasis on safety. Our utility customers solve these challenges every day using Webtech Wireless’ solutions.
When dealing with tsunami alerts, Hawaiian Electric Company turns to Quadrant:
“Quadrant makes such a difference by having that information available in real-time and on my computer so that I can easily direct our staff, and if needed, share that information with other emergency organizations,” Kelvin Kohatsu, HELCO Fleet Administrator.
For utility companies, visibility is everything. Your company's name and logo is on the side of each and every truck, and when a utility employee is injured on the job, it makes the news. At Webtech Wireless, we provide the visibility you need to keep your crews safe. If a worker is injured, you can instantly respond because you know exactly where each vehicle is located.
No matter the age of your fleet vehicles or how varied they are, our solutions will work with them. We have specialized sensors that provide automatic detection of boom up and boom down events, providing automated alerts and management insight into what is happening in the field.
Reduced time on the phone dispatching crews, monitoring stop times, and reducing routes followed, all result in higher fleet efficiencies. Our utility customers use geofencing features to track automatically that vehicles have left company parking lots on time. These and other capabilities create fleet savings over 15% per year. Time savings are realized for each crew every working day, which quickly adds up to hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars in savings per year.
Case Study Hawaiian Electric Company
The Hawaiian Electric Company wanted to increase safety and realize cost savings by deploying an automated vehicle location system.
Hawaii Electric chose Quadrant to satisfy both requirements. In the first two years of deployment, Hawaii Electric realized fuel savings of 22,000 US gallons. In the third year of deployment, they realized an additional 18,000 US gallon savings.
“GPS technology, driver training (operator knowledge), more fuel efficient vehicles, and improved dispatch management let us realize these savings.” Kelvin Kohatsu, HELCO Fleet Administrator
