Electrical Safety Authority chooses DMTI Spatial solutions

Electrical Safety Authority chooses DMTI Spatial solutions to enhance service delivery with location based solutions

ESA uses DMTI ‘s Location Hub technology to power an online contractor selection tool ,that locates licensed electrical contractors in Ontario, and to support its call centre in the scheduling and assigning of inspectors 

TORONTO – September 19, 2013– DMTI Spatial Inc. (DMTI), Canada’s leading provider of Location Intelligence solutions, today announced a multi-year agreement with the Electrical Safety Authority (ESA).

ESA will continue to use DMTI’s Location Hub to power an online tool that uses location data to help users find local licensed electrical contractors. In addition, DMTI’s services will be used to support ESA call centre operations resulting in an enhanced measure of customer service overall.DMTI Spatial

“It is critical that ESA provide public access to licensed electrical contractors, and that ESA inspectors can easily locate work sites,” said Bohdan Baluta, Director of Information Technology at Electrical Safety Authority. “DMTI helps us do this with accurate, location-based solutions that   offer consumers a choice of licensed contractors, and allow inspectors to plan routes that will maximize the number of inspections they are able to perform.”

DMTI developed a custom front-end for its Location Hub solution, enabling the public to search for licensed electrical contractors in the right community. For those Ontarians without internet access — including anyone experiencing an electrical failure — ESA’s call centre can provide the information over the phone. DMTI also designed and built a mapping interface for ESA’s call centre application so that call centre representatives can now assign inspectors according to location. The system uses GPS coordinates (longitude and latitude) which are passed to ESA’s internal SAP system to schedule inspectors, who ensure the work completed by the electrical contractors adheres to the standards as prescribed by the Ontario Electric Safety Code (OESC).

“DMTI has helped ESA enhance their customer service through improved capabilities and more efficient use of personnel,” said Phil Kaszuba, Vice President and General Manager at DMTI Spatial.

Location Hub Portal is a SaaS-based service that validates and corrects Canadian addresses for complete accuracy. It also assigns geographic coordinates to allow addresses to be placed on a map with high precision. The service reviews and compares users’ uploaded proprietary address data against DMTI’s comprehensive national database.

GEOSPACE An Endless Edge – GEOSPACE EUROPE 2012

GEOSPACE An Endless Edge - GEOSPACE EUROPE 2012

GEOSPACE An Endless Edge  – GEOSPACE EUROPE 2012

Battlefield Situational Awareness, Mineral Exploration & Resource Management, Location Based Marketing, all are enabled by maturing Geospatial technologies, and each will feature in full at GEOSPACE EUROPE 2012.

Join the best of the best to understand new potentialities in applying these tools to Defence and Intelligence, Civil and Commercial, as well as Mining, and Oil & Gas. Among other top military -defence and intelligence thought leaders, we would like to officially welcome:

Admiral Robert Murrett

Deputy Director, Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism (INSCT) & Professor of Practice, Public Administration and International Affairs, Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs | Syracuse University College of Law. Admiral Murrett, will present on “Global Strategic Risk: Defense and Intelligence Challenges“, setting the stage for interactive sessions on Geospace’s ever expanding role in facing global security risks.

GEOSPACE An Endless Edge - GEOSPACE EUROPE 2012 - Grand Place, Brussels,Begium

This event features significant networking opportunities for delegates with a singular focus, or for those with cross sector interests. Walk the floor, meet Geospace’s elite actors, positioned to discuss and exchange with delegates across the three streams.

Bump into speakers like Weronika Jakubczak, Advisor, Security and Defence Policy, Foreign Affairs, European Parliament. Do lunch with Mark Lucas, Principal Scientist at Radiant Blue Technologies Inc., working at the leading edge of Open Technology Development (OTD) for Geospatial application, or take coffee with Dr. Awni Khasawneh, General Director, Royal Jordanian Geographic Center.

The open format – three stream – cross sector program enables maximum learning, networking and partnering possibilities. GEOSPACE also brings two interactive sessions for delegates to experience.

GEOSPACE opens with a live flight demonstration conducted by Albatros UAS’ CEO Joop Wenstedt, who will demonstrate both military and commercial applications for UAVs. The hands on component continues with Brian Cellura, Miranda Gold, Generative Manager and Senior Geologist, leading a 2 Day Workshop – ‘Cutting edge GIS technologies applied for mineral and natural resource exploration‘.

Amidst exciting developments with interoperability on the defence side, and a frenzy of activity in the commercial sector surrounding the roll out of next generation location based services, a Geospace conference could get lost. Not GEOSPACE EUROPE 2012.
