When one of the largest combined gas and electric utilities in the US needed a way to deliver critical documents to its field crews, it chose Mott MacDonald’s Fieldbook, an exclusive map-based solution that helps companies stay in touch with their staff in the field.
Fieldbook is a browser-based, integrated GIS, field inspection, document management, advanced reporting and work management solution. It can be used to manage projects and assets throughout the lifecycle, across a wide range of Mott MacDonald practices.
Fieldbook is used by both field and office personnel to collect and provide real-time information on projects or assets. Thousands of users in various sectors use Fieldbook every day to make decisions and manage their projects, assets and work.
Fieldbook technology provides project efficiencies that reduce the cost of implementation. It includes a robust and growing set of tools that can be customized for virtually any project situation. The Fieldbook service is backed by an expert help desk.
The data center is connected to the Internet backbone through a managed firewall. Security measures include the separation of data and application servers from Internet-facing servers, offsite tape backup, and role-based security.
Mott MacDonald also operates a data center for its clients that provides a Citrix server farm, Oracle and SQL servers, application servers, file servers, and ESRI ArcGIS and SDE servers in a secure environment.
