Utilities can considerably improve restoration time by automating the damage assessment process – eliminating the paper maps alone can help utilities get work in the hands of accessors at lightning speed – and returned back to the storm center in real time…which means repair crews and be dispatched faster to improve restoration times.  There’s a host of other benefits which we’re sure Brad will cover and you won’t want to miss.

The ARCOS team will be on site too and if you’re attending, please let us know so we can meet you and introduce you to other ARCOS customers.  We’ll also be at booth #2763 if you need us.
