Green Mountain Power and Origin Consulting Successfully Upgrade Oracle MWM
Phase one of the MWM upgrade project consisted of upgrading MWM from version 2.2 to version 2.3. The latest major release of the Mobile Workforce Management application from Oracle offered highly anticipated new features and functionality.
For this phase of the project, Origin completed the development required to transition to the new Oracle mobile app for field crews, as well as the upgrade to service pack 2. GMP and Origin’s relationship has always been based on the foundation of collaboration. Collectively the team was able to deploy service pack 2 and complete user acceptance testing which culminated in a smooth and successful go live deployment.
As a result of moving to the Mobile Communication Platform (MCP), GMP is now able to run the Mobile Application natively on their iOS devices. This results in a reduction in overhead costs associated with virtual desktop solutions implemented to support the legacy version of MWM on mobile devices. In addition, GMP will solve a significant challenge of limited connectivity while in the field with the ability to work in offline mode using MCP. This will allow field workers to continue completing assigned work in MWM while working in rural areas with limited network coverage. Auto-syncing will then occur when field workers return to network access.
Shelly Hendee, Project Manager at GMP commented, “I just want to give a big Thanks you to EVERYONE – this was the smoothest, most efficient upgrade cutover I think I have ever experienced! This is pretty amazing with such a small team taking on such a big project.”
