SEATTLE, WA and SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 29, 2013) - DistribuTECH Booth #2944 - NetMotion Wireless, provider of software to secure, manage and optimize an organization's mobile deployments, announced today at DistribuTECH that a number of major utility organizations in North America, including three of the five largest energy providers, rely on Mobility XE to securely connect mobile workers to mission-critical applications. Together, NetMotion Wireless and the company's 92 investor-owned, municipal and cooperative utility customers across the U.S and Canada keep service flowing to nearly 100 million electric, gas, waste and water service patrons.
"Mobility XE helps our field employees access vital databases and information whenever and wherever they are," said Sundaram Ananthakrishnan, Enterprise Portfolio Architect at Southern California Edison. "This allows our employees to have more reliable, near real-time data. This helps employees work and better serve our customers."
Southern California Edison serves more than 14 million customers in 180 cities in central, coastal and Southern California. The energy provider's more than 50,000 square mile service territory includes more than 285,000 businesses.
Mobility XE is client/server software specifically built for wireless environments. It helps utility employees maintain and secure their data connections as they move in and out of wireless coverage areas and roam between networks. For the utilities NetMotion Wireless serves, Mobility XE delivers a persistent mobile data connection for field workers as they traverse service territories and require quick, uninterrupted access to operations systems, customer information and other applications from the computers in their fleet vehicles.
"We understand that a failure to connect can be detrimental to customer support initiatives and employee morale," said Bob Hunsberger, CEO, NetMotion Wireless. "Our advanced mobile VPN technology works hard to keep connections strong and reliable. NetMotion Wireless' market leadership is a testament to the critical role Mobility XE plays in today's competitive field service organizations where efficiency and customer service are paramount."
Mobility XE prevents workers, such as those at Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative (SMECO), from having to reconnect with their VPN, re-start applications or spend time opening help desk tickets.
