City of Lakeland Signs ELA with TC Technology

Carlsbad, CA, – June 30, 2011- TC Technology announces that the City of Lakeland, Florida deployed an enterprise license agreement (ELA) of GO! Sync Mobile GIS to various departments. Following a phased approach, Lakeland’s deployment targets automation of paper-based tasks and workflows including inspections, design, work management, and asset management. Now city workers benefit from easy-to-use mapping software complete with sketching, GPS, inspection, and work order integration.

Lakeland is a city of approximately 100,000 located in central Florida between Tampa and Orlando, which provides a compliment of municipal services including: electric, water, sanitary sewer, fire and police protection, garbage collection, multi-purpose facilities and award winning parks for the benefit of residents of Lakeland and the adjacent areas of Polk County.

The initial deployment equips over 50 utility field crews in Lakeland Electric with GO! Sync Mapbook providing easy searching, electric network tracing, GPS, AVL, sketching, and more which helps workers respond to scheduled and unscheduled jobs.

“Inspections and maintenance of assets is vital to maintaining critical infrastructure and efficiently operating city services in order to give taxpayers and customers the best return on their investment,” says Tracy Kirkpatrick, GIS Manager. “GO! Sync allows Lakeland to streamline maintenance and operations tasks, which makes us more efficient.”

The next phase, which automates capital project design and construction for Lakeland Electric, is underway now. Subsequent phases will further integrate GO! Sync Mobile GIS with Lakeland’s enterprise work and asset management and field force automation solution to customer service field operations and strategic asset management business processes.
