Geographic Information System (GIS) Integration to Improve Operational Effectiveness + Reduce Costs
MCGlobal Solutions addresses the challenges faced by clients in the gas industry who manage assets spread across vast geographical areas.
By integrating Geographic Information System (GIS) data with the Maintenance Connection software, MCGlobal Solutions has significantly enhanced work order efficiency and visibility for technicians, leading to improved operational effectiveness and cost savings.
GIS Integration Impact: Enhanced Work Order Efficiency + Visibility for the Gas Industry
Prior to implementing our GIS integration solution, maintenance staff faced multiple challenges:
- They lacked access to crucial GIS data, such as property boundaries, ownership details, and access agreements, resulting in inefficiencies and delays.
- Technicians often travelled long distances to attend a site, only to discover additional work orders in the same area that could have been addressed simultaneously.
GIS Visibility Benefits
With our integrated GIS interface, technicians now have improved visibility through the ability to view all work order locations on a map. They can easily identify if multiple works can be completed in the same area, reducing unnecessary travel, and optimising their productivity.
This enhanced visibility streamlines work order management and prevents technicians from having to return to the same location multiple times, reducing frustration and saving time and resources.
GIS Data Improves Accessibility
Furthermore, providing technicians with access to the GIS data allows them to research and retrieve crucial details about landholder management requirements. Previously, they had to rely on GIS operators to request this information, leading to delays and dependencies. Now, technicians can independently access and utilise GIS data, enhancing their autonomy and efficiency in completing work orders.
