Westborough, Mass., February 27, 2012 — A ViryaNet partner was awarded a contract to implement ViryaNet’s mobile workforce management solution for the scheduling and dispatch of Etschwerke Netz AG’s energy services to 158,000 customers.
Etschwerke Netz AG generates and distributes electricity, builds and manages power plants and electricity distribution networks, and distributes natural gas.
GRINTEC, a GE implementation partner, will manage the multi-phase implementation, including replacing the existing planning process, simplifying time recording/timesheets, creating target-performance comparisons and consolidating time management and work allocation in one system.
ViryaNet’s mobile workforce management solution (re-branded as FFA by GE) will help Etschwerke Netz AG track work status, better respond to changes in workload, and improve performance measurement.
Based in northern Italy, Etschwerke Netz AG required the ViryaNet solution to support both Italian and German in the user interface and data elements, as well as the ability to search in both languages and switch between languages.
With an ongoing commitment to customer satisfaction, continuity, and efficiency, Etschwerke Netz AG will use ViryaNet’s solution to continue to serve as a reliable partner to its business and household customers.
