Telogis and Milsoft Utility Solutions Successfully Interoperate Telogis Fleet with the DisSpatch Outage Management System via MultiSpeak
Certification follows successful interoperability test with the DisSpatch® outage management system.
Aliso Viejo, CA, Sept. 20, 2010 — Telogis, Inc., the platform for location intelligence, announces that its Telogis Fleet vehicle management solution has achieved MultiSpeak® Version 4 certification for interoperability with Milsoft Utility Solutions' DisSPatch® Outage Management System (OMS). Multispeak certification is a collaboration between the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) and leading software designers that supply the utility market to identify software products that work together without developing extensive or complicated interfaces.
By integrating Telogis Fleet with the DisSPatch OMS, utility customers will now visualize real-time location of field resources (both vehicles and assets) within Milsoft's DisSPatch Client Map. This allows dispatchers to better observe resource status and dispatch the closest technician with the most appropriate resources. It improves operational efficiency, outage management response time and overall productivity, saving both time and money.
“Integrating Telogis Fleet with a leading outage management system offers our utility customers additional levels of visibility and control over their mobile workforce, and increases the value of the location intelligence platform,” says Jason Koch, president, Telogis Fleet. “Multispeak certification with Milsoft's DisSPatch solution improves workforce efficiency for utilities and better directs resources to where they are needed most.”
“The integration with Telogis Fleet empowers our customers to make fast, accurate and critical decisions while in the field to ensure that power is restored as quickly and safely as possible,” says Luis Malave, executive vice president and chief technology officer, Milsoft. “Milsoft is passionate about supporting MultiSpeak, as we feel that is the fastest and most cost-efficient way to deliver the value and usefulness of the software solutions that we deliver to our customers.”
