Mobile Computing Solutions for the Utility Workforce
GammaTech – U.S. Headquarters: Fremont, CA – World Headquarters: Taiwan – Years in Business: 30 – Employees: 500+ – Annual Revenues: $200M+ Presenter – Roger Cresswell, Business Development Mgr. – 30 years Mobile Computing Industry Knowledge – Professional Services, Customers Service, Industry Marketing and Business Development in Utilities, Telecommunications, Field Services, Enterprise Solutions
Field Service Objective The rule of rights… Get the right person To the right location With the right information And the right tools At the right time To fix it right the first time Enablers: CADGPS Telematics Systems
Steve Jobs 2010 Prediction – Tablets will eventually overtake PCs in sales… “We were an agrarian nation, all cars were trucks because that’s what you needed on the farm. But as vehicles started to be used in the urban centers and America started to move into those urban and suburban centers, cars got more popular. PCs are going to be like trucks. They’re still going to be around. They’re still going to have a lot of value, but they’re going to be used by one out of X people.”
When should Enterprises adopt Tablet Computing? Dr. Pierre Berthon, Professor of Marketing at Clifford House, and team study results The 4-I’s are the ways in which people interact with devices… Inscriptive: inputting information (i.e. doctors and nurses recording medical data) Informative: reading, watching, listening (i.e. restaurant menu app with wine pairings) Interactive: editing or using graphics (i.e. video chat session with a service rep) Isolative: storing information (i.e. technician stores schematics in pdf) The 3-C’s refer to the abilities of the devices… Configure-ability: ability to change the configuration of both input (inscriptive) and display (informative) of information. Consume-ability: the ease with which information can be consumed or interacted with (both inscriptive and informative). Context-ability: the awareness of context, such as time and place. Conclusion – PCs have generally been Context-ual (general, impersonal, objective) while tablets are engaging in Context-ive (specific, local, subjective) computing.
Why Tablet Computing for Field Technicians? Better User Experience… Smaller Footprint Lighter Weight Easier Handling Touch/Swipe Interface Longer Battery Life Fewer Components to Fail Better Intrusion Protection Accessories When Needed
