Tait works with specialist partners to deliver integrated location solutions that enable our clients to safely and efficiently manage their field operations.
A key element of a location solution is Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL), which is the reporting of the current position of mobile assets (i.e. people and vehicles) on a map using Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) such as GPS.
In addition to GNSS for outdoor positioning, Tait portable radios can gather indoor location information from Bluetooth® iBeacons.
Benefits of Location Services
The tracking, reporting and recording of each asset's location and status enables real-time visibility of field operations, delivering rapid and sustainable improvements in the safety, efficiency and auditing of your field staff and assets.
The key benefits of an integrated location solution include enhanced worker safety, increased productivity of field operations, shortened incident response time, improved customer satisfaction due to higher standards of performance, and reduced and controlled field operation costs.

Clevest AVL is the only AVL solution built specifically for the electrical utilities industry. It connects both field and office staff with the most usable, functional and visually appealing browser-based AVL solution available to utilities today.
Clevest AVL improves your visibility of field activities through a real-time, GPS-based location map view of your vehicles and their relation to your asset infrastructure. It uses dynamic icons and graphics on WebMap to track your vehicle and moveable asset locations, determine the closest vehicle to a task, monitor or query the status or progress on a task, and quickly address any issues that may occur. It also provides detailed reports on your vehicle activities and condition.
For even greater connection between the field and office, utilities can leverage the fully integrated Clevest Mobile Workforce Management (MWFM) to wirelessly manage all types of work directly from the AVL WebMap.
