ABILENE, Texas – December 18, 2013 — Milsoft Utility Solutions, Inc., Milsoft Utility Solutions and FieldWorker Products Ltd. have successfully passed interoperability tests for the interface between Milsoft’s E&O System, including its Outage Management System (OMS), and FieldWorker’s custom enterprise mobility solutions in compliance with the MultiSpeak® 3.0 standard. The interoperability enables a utility’s workers in the field to obtain information about all current service outages, including outage cause codes, on their mobile devices without the need for an active server network connection. They can also update outage cause codes as well as close / restore an outage from the field without having to contact the dispatcher. The FieldWorker mobile solutions automatically acquire outage information and update Milsoft OMS through the MultiSpeak web service method by periodically calling the Milsoft E&O System web server. This is consistent with Milsoft’s and Fieldworker’s shared goal of enabling their users to do their jobs more more easily, effectively and efficiently.
