Routine maintenance of poles, lines and wires (transmission lines) is the key to
preventing outages, equipment failures and other problems that could impact customers'
service. Technicians equipped with wireless-enabled Toughbook® mobile computers
can work more productively using a truly rugged mobile computer that can take the
drops and spills of routine utility work.
Routine maintenance requires continuous inspections and service of the utility's infrastructure. A mobile laptop is only useful if it can access service records, schematics and schedules on-demand while withstanding the routine knocks, drops, and spills that come with the job. Anything less means reduced productivity and higher operating expenses.
Panasonic Toughbook mobile computers can take the daily abuse of utility workers performing routine maintenance, even in extreme heat, cold and inclement weather conditions where most other laptops would fail. The superior reliability, long battery life and daylight readable displays of Toughbook laptops allow technicians to work uninterrupted. Using utility-specific software, they can conduct routine repairs and inspections, perform connects/disconnects, remotely update service records and access service manuals, even in bright sunlight. This translates to improved efficiency, lower labor costs and greater uptime which is why many utilities choose rugged Toughbook mobile computers for their routine maintenance needs.
