GeoGrid

Enhanced reality for field technicians.

Benefits & Key Features

Comprehensive view of network resources layered on top of Google Maps—your grid on Google Street View. Access to all attributes describing network elements from mobile devices—printing or attaching photos and notes on-site. Simultaneous use of address search engine and Google navigation.



Technology Solution

The GeoGrid application allows easy access to infrastructure data from mobile devices such as laptops, tablets and smartphones. All data is presented in a user-friendly manner, employees have easy access to the necessary information, without needing to print maps or documentation. In case of an event or emergency on a network, employees can check the characteristics of the field infrastructure or review technical documentation in the form of attachments and check for collisions with other grids, which greatly facilitates preventive actions, reduces the risk of malfunctions and shortens the downtime for clients. Employees have access to the data from the Web browser, the data is presented in a simplified form on the background of the road map and aerial photos, making it much easier to talk with clients about new connections. Decision makers have access to data about field infrastructure, regardless of the place in which they are located (e.g. conferences, meetings with the city authorities, meetings with local residents). They can visually present their network data, discuss investments and modernize and develop plans.
