Transforming Utility Services with Eos Arrow Gold GNSS Receiver


In the realm of utility services, accurate and up-to-date records are crucial for ensuring efficient operations, addressing customer needs, maintaining safety standards, ensuring continuity of services, and enabling proactive decision-making. Yet, many utility companies struggle to overcome the obstacles that hinder their ability to deliver reliable services.

The integration of the Eos Arrow Gold® Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receivers brings remarkable improvements to data collection processes. With its precise asset location capabilities, utility companies could ensure that every assessment and record was based on accurate location and data input at the asset, eliminating guesswork and reducing errors. The GNSS receiver’s real-time functionality empowered utility workers to collect data efficiently, saving valuable time and resources. This streamlined approach facilitated evidence-based decision-making, resulting in improved operational efficiency and customer service.

Recent innovations have lowered the cost of equipment and supporting services such as highly accurate correction services, and also simplified the user experience by putting accurate location into the hands of utility experts.

Tohono O’odham Utility Authority (TOUA), entrusted with providing essential utility services to the Tohono O’odham Nation, encountered significant obstacles arising from the lack of accurate and comprehensive utility records. These challenges manifested in uncoordinated information flows, data collection gaps, conflicting data editing workflows, and inconsistencies in spatial standards among the diverse utility departments, crews, and contractors spanning their three crucial domains: water, power, and telecommunications. Additionally, working in culturally and archaeologically sensitive areas added further complexity to their tasks.

Learn how Tohono O’odham Utility Authority (TOUA) successfully tackled these obstacles with the help of the Eos Arrow Gold GNSS receiver. See the full article here from Eos Positioning Systems’ Success Story.
