Making Sense of Developments in Mobile Workforce Management Solutions in 2019

At first glance, the relationship between California’s wildfires and mobile workforce management may seem tenuous. But the connection is not so slight, when you consider that vegetation management, ostensibly the cause of the fire, is part of a field worker’s duties. Outage management is also key to disaster response. “They (natural disasters and mobile worker management solutions) are inextricably linked, if you are absolutely looking to streamline your operations,” says Michael Kelly, research analyst at Navigant Research.
In a year marked by natural disasters and distinct shifts in the energy mix powering grids, mobile workforce management (MWM) solutions gained ground as the utility industry continued its embrace of technology. Spending on mobile workforce management solutions at utilities is expected to grow from $335.3 million in 2018 to $518.2 million by 2027, according to a report released by Navigant Research last year.
