HOW ARCOS HELPS WATER UTILITIES
ARCOS resource management software helps to reduce crew response time for water main breaks, service interruptions and unplanned overtime while making it easier to follow union callout rules through emergency response automation. The system also records the steps taken in each emergency situation which helps to eliminate grievances and provides easy reporting for regulatory groups.
Progressive water utilities across North America are using ARCOS resource management solutions to ensure customer safety by getting crews to water main breaks or other emergency situations faster. For example, Suffolk County Water responds 40 minutes faster during outages and reduced customer services workloads from hours to just minutes. Full mobile capabilities ensure field crews and managers aren’t tied to a desk to relay critical information and built-in location tracking ensures managers know where their crews are and their time of arrivals for each job.
Water utility executives, regulators, EPA and labor leaders are demanding metric details, compliance, and safety reporting. ARCOS helps prepare you to share critical data in real-time and post-emergency events. Automated call out, crew management, damage assessment and inspection systems are enabling water utilities to improve their operational insight through automatic documentation and reporting immediately available anytime or anywhere you are.
