ROCKVILLE, MD, Dec. 21, 2009 -- Brabant Water in the Netherlands has rolled out Tensing Navigation to guide their field technicians from location to location. Tensing Navigation has been integrated with Tensing Mobile Workflow, already in use at Brabant Water. With Tensing Navigation field technicians will not have to enter work order addresses, the addresses will automatically populate from the work order. With the new navigation integration, field technicians will optimize their travel time, distance, and route, reducing both gas usage and CO2 emissions.
With integration between Tensing Navigation and Tensing Mobile Workflow, no step is needed to activate the navigation. The destination is taken from the work order and navigation starts automatically. Upon arrival at the destination, Tensing Navigation toggles back to the Tensing Mobile Workflow application for the field technician to complete his work.
"We chose Tensing Navigation to further optimize our field operations. The integrated solution automatically retrieves the destination address from the work order and logs work time, eliminating double data entry and preventing mistakes," said René van den Berg, Information Technology, Brabant Water.
About Tensing Navigation
The Tensing Navigation solution is based on the ALK CoPilot route navigation software and the integration with Tensing Mobile Workflow. The solution is available for laptops (Windows XP or Vista) and mobile devices like PDAs with the Windows Mobile operating system.
