AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- From MaximoWorld 2022, InterPro Solutions, which offers the first and only suite of mobile solutions designed exclusively for IBM Maximo®, announced today that, along with its client Southern Company, it has been named winner of the MaximoWorld Award for Best Mobility.
InterPro offers a suite of Maximo mobile apps built exclusively for Maximo that O&M teams need to do their jobs efficiently and effectively without the cost, complexity, and service impacts of available alternatives. InterPro’s EZMaxMobile provides companies with a mobile app that extends and enhances the capabilities of Maximo to technicians in the field – both online and offline.
Southern Company’s Power Delivery division implemented EZMaxMobile in 2021 while simultaneously implementing Maximo. Southern Company’s Power Delivery group provides distribution and transmission of electricity to over nine million customers across multiple states. The Power Delivery team maintains assets such as poles, power lines, and transformers spread across a wide geographic area, which led to Southern Company’s need for a mobile work management tool to accompany Maximo. Southern Company chose EZMaxMobile as their mobile solution because it had the best fit with Maximo.
With EZMaxMobile, Southern Company’s technicians are able to easily perform inspections, oversee work management and make updates to work orders in the field. They are also able to view multi-layer maps that show the location of power lines, transformers, sub-stations, and poles to more easily complete their work. Productivity has increased substantially since they can complete all their work in the field – even in areas without data connectivity when using EZMaxMobile’s patented offline mode.
"This award highlights the Power Delivery group’s achievements with Maximo and mobility. We are very proud to be recognized as a leader in our industry with our success using EZMaxMobile to better perform inspections, maintenance, and repairs across our wide geographic area,” said Matthew Dudley, Application Analyst at Southern Company.
“We are very honored to receive this MaximoWorld Award in conjunction with Southern Company,” said Bill Fahey, CEO, InterPro Solutions. “This award again recognizes InterPro Solutions as a leader in the Maximo mobile space and showcases our continued commitment to our clients’ success.”
In addition, InterPro’s Jeffrey Smith, Senior Director of Business Process Solutions (formerly Executive Director for Facilities Services at Harvard University), will speak at MaximoWorld 2022 on “Next Generation Mobility for Field Supervisors” discussing how field supervisors are being empowered with next generation work management tools that are able to leverage high value information and processes beyond the bounds of Maximo, on Aug 9 at 3:30pm CST and “New Generation Planning and Scheduling Tools,” exploring how American Electric Power (AEP) solved planning and scheduling challenges across Fleet Maintenance Operations, on Aug 10 at 3:30pm CST.
