Forcelink is presenting at this years annual African Spectrum Power User Group Meeting in Johannesburg, South Africa, hosted by City Power Johannesburg and Siemens, introducing the PowerLink, the first SaaS (Software as a Service) Outage Management System, specifically developed for the electrical distribution sector.
Meeting participants include Siemens Germany, the City of Tshwane South Africa, G&I Computers South Africa, IES South Africa, Telemit Nigeria, Kwena Electrical Namibia and City Power Johannesburg. Speaking at the meeting Joao Zoio of Acumen Software said “the Powerlink OMS is particularly suited to the needs of African power distribution operators, featuring as it does a combination of powerful work and asset management on mobile phones and tablets and an integration with the Siemens Spectrum SCADA system, which is used by many leading utilities. This offers a superb return on investment in terms of both improved customer service and metrics (such as SAIDI, SAIFI, CAIDI etc.) as well as improved usage of field resources and “in your hand” information on low cost mobile devices to enable the right decision by field staff.”
