DistribuTECH 2014: NetMotion Wireless Research Reveals Impact of Tablets on Utility Field Service

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Jan 21, 2014) -

WHO:
Lee Johnson, Director, Field Marketing, NetMotion Wireless (Booth #4340), will present the company's most recent research "2013 Mobile Utility Survey: Understanding the Impact of Mobile Devices in Utility Field Force Deployments" at DistribuTECH 2014. The event, hosted by PennWell, is being held in San Antonio, Texas, Jan 28-30.

Johnson has extensive experience helping utilities extend office-like session persistence and efficiency to field service workers. In fact, 120 investor-owned, municipal and cooperative utility customers across the U.S. and Canada rely on his company's software to keep service flowing to nearly 100 million electric, gas, waste and water service patrons.

WHAT:
Utilities are expanding their use of mobile devices to improve customer service and worker productivity, but questions remain about the long-term viability of tablets in the field. In the "2013 Mobile Utility Survey: Understanding the Impact of Mobile Devices in Utility Field Force Deployments" session, Johnson will reveal -- based on a 2013 North American survey of electric, gas and water utilities -- which devices are currently in use, how quickly tablets are being adopted and what their benefits are. He will also detail the top three concerns surrounding tablets: security, training and equipment, as well as discuss the implications of a BYOD policy. Attendees will learn what advantages tablets have over legacy technologies, making them a potential game-changer for utility field service.

WHEN:
Tuesday, January 28, 2014 at 1:00 PM Central

WHERE:
Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, San Antonio, TX, Room 213B
