for utilities through improved operational efficiencies and cost

A new report from Navigant
examines the key market trends related to Mobile Workforce
Management (MWM) solutions, providing global market forecasts, segmented
by type, category, and region, through 2027.

MWM solutions are undergoing a significant transformation as utilities
focus on mobility and digitization through proliferation of
consumer-grade mobile devices. The value of mobilizing a workforce with
devices, services, and applications has been established, but there is
room for further adoption of MWM technologies (MWMT) by utilities to
expand toward deployment to full capability. Click

: According to a new report from @NavigantRSRCH,
utility spending for mobile workforce management solutions is expected
to grow to $518.2 million by 2027.

"Despite the challenges of implementing and upgrading MWMT, utilities
have already seen the value in these solutions," says Michael Kelly,
research analyst with Navigant. "Developed regions that may have had
workforce management solutions are strategically evaluating important
upgrades, while those in developing regions are budgeting for initial
deployments that will lead to greater efficiencies and cost savings."

According to the report, Navigant Research predicts the market for MWM
solutions in the utility space will see strong growth in the future due
to trends in technology like distributed energy resources and prosumer
culture leading to flattening demand and revenue profiles for utilities.
Through MWM solutions, utilities can mitigate these challenges through
improved operational efficiencies and cost reductions, as well as
improve worker safety and the overall customer experience.
