Tempe, AZ going Tablet PC

 GPS and Tablet PCs are a logical choice for field workers, even for those like my mother-in-law who get lost just by walking outside. I don’t use a GPS, but know several folks that just love them. Anyone use a GPS with work or just for personal use?

The City of Tempe, Arizona, Water Utilities Department knew that by upgrading its technology and processes, it could improve customer service, data management, and work order processing while reducing paper and saving taxpayer time and money.

To solve these challenges, Tempe chose Marshall’s new GeoResults Mobile solution.  GeoResults Mobile is integrated with ESRI map data and Hansen asset/work order management systems on a tablet PC.  It provides field utility workers with current map-based data, asset locations, feature attributes, work order processing and other enterprise business information wherever they are located in the City.  This solution utilizes Tempe’s citywide wireless WiFi network and is coordinated with a Trimble GPS system so workers can quickly find an asset and perform tasks with greater efficiency, saving time and increasing productivity.
