GeoConcept is a software developed at the Service Industrial Genevoise that allows the technician working ‘on the field’ to share notes on the maps of the city. The software, of course, is also specifically tailored to the needs of the SIG, which is to identify specific points on the ground (i.e., pipes, taps, electric apparatus, etc.). The program works on Windows PocketPC.
The geographical information systems of SIG answers perfectly to the desire of quality and performance permanent research for a public utility company close to their 250 000 customers. With the contribution of mobile technologies, we are able to propose data-processing tools even more effective for the operators and the managers of our 7 700 km of water, gas, electricity, heat and optical fibre supply networks. Indeed, 60 % of the 1 500 collaborators of SIG ensure a proximity service directly on the ground. Bring the geographical information, used in more than 73 % of the activities, within reach makes it possible for each one to adapt its business and to practice it in all independence, with simple resources, without constraint of place or schedule.
