Smartworks Get WorkSmart

Smartworks Metering engineers are using WorkSmart; a new app from Meter Provida aimed at revolutionising the way meter engineers work.  

The app enables Smartworks' meter installers to order consumables via their mobile devices and have them despatched the same day*, reducing the potential for costly downtime and optimising project efficiency. 

Derek Little, Operational Support Manager for Smartworks, commented: 

"It is an off the shelf product that we have configured with Meter Provida to match our specific operational needs. The App has been developed with smart metering in mind and can be used by a large number of engineers to meet our client's expectations by not having to worry if engineers have stock to complete their allocated work load." 

WorkSmart is part of the Meter Provida Slipstream family of Apps and provides supervisors and operations teams with the ability to set pre-authorised spending levels for field engineers to order consumables they need to complete a job. 

*If ordered by 12 noon.
