Prime Electrical deploys TerraGo Edge for GPS surveys, mobile workflow and paperless forms – all at a fraction of the cost of traditional GPS handhelds
Washington, D.C. February 03, 2015 – TerraGo, a pioneer of geospatial collaboration and enterprise mobility software, is pleased to announce that leading South Africa electrical contractor, Prime Electrical, has selected TerraGo Edge for all field surveying and data collection projects. Prime Electrical projects require accurate location surveys as well as a rigorous on-site approval and documentation workflow that traditional GPS handhelds cannot accommodate.
According to Marius Jansen Van Vuuren, Chief of Operations – Drilling Division, Prime Electrical, “TerraGo Edge has not only made our reporting and data collection more accurate, but it has allowed Prime Electrical field crews to be more efficient and effective.” He adds, “We were able to roll out the solution quickly, due to its low price point and minimal training. Now, we get documentation and reports directly from field crews that allow us to start projects faster, obtain funding in half the time and give our customers step-by-step progress on their electrical projects.”
“Prime Electrical collects a large amount of data to collect in order to do the necessary electrical work for their customers,” says Dave Basil, Vice Present of Products and Services, TerraGo. “With TerraGo Edge, they don’t need to treat data collection as a separate process. They can do the work while collecting GPS-tagged data from their phones and tables. This not only streamlines customer service, but transforms field operations.”
With the introduction of TerraGo Edge, Prime Electrical has been able to use a single solution to address multiple operational issues including data collection, site reports, customer service, data timeliness and offline access to maps and diagrams for field crews. They could also deploy it quickly, with no need for wide-scale crew trainings. Prime Electrical has already seen benefits in job quality, efficiency and customer satisfaction.
