Brisbane’s leading provider of software and services – Mincom – has announced a new agreement worth $7 million with Western Power, which will enable employees to access vital information from their mobile devices.

As the electricity provider for nearly one million homes and businesses in Western Australia, Western Power’s adoption of Mincom Mobility solutions is a significant win for the Queensland-based business.

The technology will allow 1,600 operational field employees to access real-time data about the state of every company asset remotely, including power poles and street lights.

For more than 10 years, Western Power has successfully streamlined its asset infrastructure with Mincom Ellipse, the leading solution for Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) for asset-intensive industries.

After a substantial re-evaluation of applications supporting the company’s core business processes, Western Power decided to further extend its use of Mincom Ellipse to improve productivity, seamlessly meet regulatory standards, and reduce operating costs.

Under the new contract, Western Power will upgrade to the current release of Mincom’s EAM platform, Mincom Ellipse 6.3.

In addition, Western Power has licensed Mincom Mobility, a suite of end-to-end, fully integrated mobile applications for automating field-force operations using mobile devices such as laptops, tablets and PDAs.

Mincom CEO Greg Clark explains asset-intensive organisations with mobile workforces often have to operate without technology support in the field.

"By augmenting its proven-successful deployment of Mincom Ellipse with Mincom Mobility solutions, Western Power can now efficiently streamline asset management directly where it happens – in the field," Clark says.

"We are pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with one of the true leaders in the utilities industry as it further evolves its best-practices application of technology for business benefit," he says.
