The ubiquitous use of smartphones and tablets today means that utilities need to get on board and ensure their staff are comfortable with internet-enabled devices in the field.
The efficiency gains that utilities can enjoy when using mobile devices range from five to 15 per cent, and the use of these technologies is viewed favourably by regulators – making mobile software applications an increasingly appealing option.
K2Fly is a leading consulting systems integrator with extensive experience in successfully delivering software solutions to the electricity, gas and water sectors.
This real-world experience comes from leading edge implementations in Australia, Asia, the US and the UK.
The company has a strong focus on solving the problems of its clients.
Rather than trying to fit their software into their customers’ businesses, they instead focus on how they can adapt their software to the client’s individual needs.
K2Fly works across different business areas and has relationships with a number of partners.
A specialty is the area of mobility, where the company works with leading field management provider Capita (UK), as well as the top-ranked mobile application development platform (MADP) from Kony (US).
The Fieldreach solution from Capita is used by more than 50,000 users on a daily basis and is deployed in electricity, gas and water companies.
Most of the UK’s water companies deploy Fieldreach with their mobile field workers, and have reported improvements when it comes to ensuring the right work is being done at the right time, against the right assets with the correct certifications, tools and materials.
Kony’s MADP is used extensively in global organisations such as Engie, where clients are helped to develop their own suite of apps, as well as exploiting numerous “out-of-the-box” offerings.
K2Fly has a strong history of working with utility industry clients. Current clients include Western Power, Horizon Power, Woodside, Programmed and Fortescue Metals Group.
Previous international clients include National Grid, EDF Energy, E.On and Southern Water.
