IBM Maximo & Human Sensors in the City of Cambridge

Comments Off on IBM Maximo & Human Sensors in the City of Cambridge


Mike Hausser, Director of Asset Management for the City of Cambridge, Ontario, explains how by using IBM Maximo and IBM Analytics they are managing the city’s 1.6 billion infrastructure. Even though Cambridge has grown 30% they are doing more for less with greater responsiveness to the general public. Particularly interesting is how they are integrating citizen reporting into work order management and communicating back out to the city citizens.

Green Light for Queensland Power Project

Comments Off on Green Light for Queensland Power Project

Tolerro is pleased to announce the commencement of an exciting new mobile workforce project for Powerlink.

As the winning tenderer for the Powerlink Mobile Data Capture Project, we will be collaborating with SAP to implement the SAP Mobile Platform to provide a mobile solution to manage substation inspections.  Powerlink owns, operates, develops and maintains Queensland’s high voltage electricity transmission network, which transports electricity in bulk from power generators to the regional distribution networks.

The objective of the Mobile Data Capture Project is to provide the workforce with quick and reliable access to asset data whilst capturing inspection data on the spot as it happens.  The project expects to achieve greater productivity and efficiency through the removal of paperwork and data entry.

For 11 years Tolerro has been at the forefront of implementing innovative technology for the asset management industry.  Implementing this mobile technology for Powerlink is yet another exciting project and a trail blazer for future SAP Mobile App implementations.

Our journey of success continues.

IBM Pulse Conference 2013

Comments Off on IBM Pulse Conference 2013

It was great to see lots of familiar faces again this year at the IBM Pulse 2013 Conference in June, held at the Crown Promenade in Melbourne. As usual, IBM put together a fantastic conference with some great speakers including Futurist Tim Longhurst and well known journalist George Negus.

The core themes of Cloud and IT Optimisation, Smarter Physical Infrastructure, Mobility and Security were covered in great detail with people sharing their experience, difficulties and success in the these areas. Maximo featured heavily in many presentations with IBM clearly continuing to improve the solution and maintain a roadmap that keeps Maximo as the benchmark in asset management solutions. We were also excited to hear that the much anticipated arrival of a Mobile Maximo solution built using IBM’s Worklight is expected to be released in the very near future. We’ll keep you posted.
