Dakota Electric Association Signs ELA with TC Technology

Carlsbad, CA, – October 24, 2011- TC Technology announces Dakota Electric Association deployed an enterprise license agreement (ELA) of GO! Sync Mobile GIS.

Dakota Electric Association is a member-owned, not-for-profit electric utility founded by local farmers in 1937 with the help of the Rural Electrification Administration. With more than 100,000 members, Dakota Electric is the second largest electric cooperative in Minnesota and ranked among the 25 largest electric distribution cooperatives in the nation.

Following an initial rollout in 2009, field use of GO! Sync Mobile GIS steadily increased as Dakota Electric Association realized its paperless workflow initiative. Crews now benefit from up-to-date electronic map viewing, streamlined work order completion, and automated inspection procedures.
