The process of transitioning old household water meters to new remote controlled ones can be a complicated process involving a handful of parties:
There are a lot of moving parts here!
The contractor needs to determine which households require upgrades, and will subsequently need to approve the installations and assign job tickets to plumbers. Plumbers need to know which households to upgrade and where they are located. And of course, the contractor will also want to know whether the upgrades are actually performed or if any unforeseen issues have arisen.
Wouldn't it be great if all of this could happen in real-time -- preventing long-lasting delays and unnecessary expenditure of money and resources?
This is where SeeSaw comes in.
Our system is an excellent way to "map" which households need upgrades; to "assign" job tickets to plumbers; and to "track" the completion of upgrades.
A card for each household's meter is created, and as new information is collected, new pieces of the puzzle are added -- pieces that anyone can retrieve or dispense in a variety of ways, no matter what day or what time.
So what sort of information is in a piece of the puzzle? And how can it be collected?
SeeSaw: Household Mapping
Before any meters can be upgraded, information on each household must be collected. Fortunately for the contractor, its employees use SeeSaw Android application to map each household.
Meet James. He works for the contractor and is tasked with using SeeSaw application to collect household information -- from homeowner details to GPS coordinates to information on the location of the meter to even estimated costs of installation. Fortunately for James, SeeSaw app integrates with information already in the contractor's system, including data on cost structures, allowing cost estimates to be made automatically.
