Project Description & Benefits:
In 2016, Eversource Energy sought a qualified systems integration and development partner to complete enhancements and system integration for its storm damage assessment application. Eversource selected GridBright for the project which was completed on time and budget in 2017. After rolling out the enhanced application in Spring 2017, Eversource reported streamlined field crew damage assessment workflows that are already improving Eversource’s ability to provide more accurate outage restoration information to customers and communities.
The Eversource damage assessment application developed in partnership with GridBright has proven to be a simple, reliable and useable tool. GridBright’s expertise in design and as an effective integration partner, was critical to the success of the project.
