Customers are expecting better and better services. The time of service technicians is becoming more and more valuable. Our roads are becoming increasingly congested. The need for safe delivery and tracking of tools and materials is essential to efficient planning and control. Leading utility companies continue to invest to address these critical considerations and realise these efficiencies.
In an ever increasingly connected world utilities expect to be able to know where all the supplies, materials and tools are at any point in time. Reducing waste in time and materials is critical, as well as reducing the impact of inefficient supply chains on the environment. United Vanning Consulting and Pelipod address all the above with their unique, innovative supply chain solution in combination with unparalleled capabilities for process execution, analysis, visualisation and integration from Software AG that will truly transform the field service operations of utilities:

Pelipod shortens and simplifies your supply chain enabling your staff to be more productive and efficient.
Through Software AG’s Digital Business Platform utilities will be able to integrate the Pelipod portal to their back end systems with complete process execution and visibility ensuring:

Ultimately it boils down to the business case for using the Pelipod solution and Software AG’s Digital Business Platform to improved business processes: lowering the cost of field service operations, increasing customer satisfaction while reducing the impact on the environment throughout.
Invariably this means joining up the individual processes using the Digital Business Platform, connecting with the business systems such as ERP, CRM, Asset Management, Warehouse Management, Field service, Scheduling, GIS etc. Delivering the value this gives dictates the nature of the integration and the requirements of the platform.

United Vanning believes GDPR must not become a one-off, reactive activity. The opportunity is captured to drive strategic data capability planning across the entire enterprise. The platform tools ensure that initiatives are aligned with the physical reality of data across the entire enterprise through sensitive data scanning and data quality assessment of all data sources, structured and unstructured, providing the company with its first defendable GDPR assessment and data support to its strategy
More and more companies are realising that data and accessibility to data drive innovation in customer experience and business processes. However, new Data Warehouses (DWs) or Data Lakes are simply not enough. Building an Enterprise Data Layer that services data consumers, both operationally and analytically is imperative. This is even more important in a microservices architecture. Services are meaningless without access to data. This requires technology and implementation for:
The Data Discovery layer allows you to catalogue all data sources and manage the business definitions of data. It automatically identifies the underlying sensitive data across the organization that it needs to protect. Understand what the sensitive data means, where it comes from, where it moves (data in motion) and who has access to it. Generate dynamic data lineage views for complete traceability. Trust that the data and the processes comply with the regulation. Centrally govern PII and SPI and avoid hefty fines for data breaches and non-compliance.

United Vanning is an expert consultancy providing:
In today’s digital world, Wayleave and Easement management is still to a high degree a manual paper driven process. Ideally the process should be digitised between the stakeholder (customer, landowner etc.) and the utility. The information about the Wayleaves and Easements and their specific features should be made easily accessible in the field where the real use of the information is most valuable. Not knowing the conditions, features and specific geographical locations of Wayleaves and Easements can lead to mistakes in the field and poor on-going relationships with landowners and other stakeholders.
Utilities suffer from extensive losses every year due to a) damages to utility services as a result of unlawful wayleave works and b) the slow processing of applications from customers and other stakeholders. The process has low visibility and is often considered cumbersome leading to decreased brand value and customer experience. Slow administration causes project delays and lost opportunities leading to increased cost. Customer and third party complaints may lead to penalties that could have been avoided.
United Vanning’s MIWEM (Mobile Integrated Wayleave And Easement Management) solution supports viewing and searching wayleaves in the field, updating wayleave features, and receiving continuous updates on any issues or tasks related to the activity at hand.
MIWEM builds on Software AG’s Digital Business Platform (DBP), using its mobile suite, master data management, process automation and enterprise integration capabilities to maintain definitive, up-to-date and highly visible records of wayleaves and easements. MIWEM delivers:
Easily extensible solution using Software AG’s Digital Business Platform features including:
