According to 85% of respondents to the Future of Field Operation vision study, real-time data access is vital to the successful execution of mission-critical workflows in the energy and utilities industry. The results are part of a three-part report led by Zebra which is showcasing its purpose-built solutions for front-line energy and utilities workers this week at the DISTRIBUTECH International conference and exhibition.
“Mobile technology is critical in maintaining the uninterrupted operations that customers expect from their water, electricity and fuel supply service providers,” said Alex Cooper, director of government and critical field service strategy, Zebra Technologies. “To perform at their best, front-line workers must be able to rely on mobile communications to get their jobs done effectively and safely. Our study shows that as energy and utilities organizations progress along their digital transformation initiatives, they will increasingly deploy mobile technologies to give workers access to real-time data in the field.”
