HERNDON, Va., Oct. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Apex CoVantage recently announced the successful completion of Green Mountain Power's (GMP) AMI deployment. Utilizing ProField, its proprietary ERP solution for workforce management, Apex finished installing all 270,000 smart meters four months faster than the planned schedule.
Consistent with Apex's stellar safety record, no on-the-job injuries were reported – a major accomplishment given the extreme winter weather conditions in which the work was performed.
Tapping into ProField's customizable features and adaptive programming, Apex was able to create workflows, web applications, and KPI dashboards specific to the project's requirements. When GMP changed its CIS/Billing system mid-deployment, Apex was able to quickly integrate with the new system. ProField also enabled Apex to modify routes and workflows to circumvent hurricanes, blizzards and record flooding.
Gary Belock and Mary Morris, Project Managers at GMP, were both impressed by Apex's agility in responding to potential bottlenecks and adjusting the mobile workforce management tool accordingly. "Apex proved its flexibility by quickly scaling to accommodate changes to our deployment schedule," they said. "Not only did partnering with Apex allow us to use a single vendor to deploy our meters and network equipment, but ProField also gave us a great management tool which allowed GMP's project team to keep our finger on the pulse of the entire deployment."
