Digital technologies hold tremendous promise for transmission and distribution (T&D) organizations looking to improve the management of resources, costs and the safety and productivity of their field workforce. By moving to a digital workforce, utilities can use new technologies to turn insight into action and produce outcomes not previously achievable.
Organizations in the T&D sector are under intense pressure to improve their financial performance. At the same time, they must meet their obligations to customers, as well as their regulatory commitments to reduce risk and improve safety. In this complex environment, the ability to wisely and effectively manage capital and operations and maintenance (O&M) costs has never been more important. Given the high costs associated with field labor, optimizing worker efficiency and productivity has become an absolute imperative.
