Crewe, Va.-based Southside Electric Cooperative (SEC) has licensed Apex CoVantage's ProField technology for managing the replacement of electric meters throughout its service territory as part of its smart grid program.

According to Apex, ProField is a system for mobile workforce management that covers the full spectrum of functionality, including asset management, training and certification, remote management of field operations, fault-resistant workflows, and real-time reporting.

The company adds that ProField will serve as the "backbone" of SEC's project management office, ensuring proper inventory control, scheduling, data collection, quality control, and data integration with SEC's customer information and billing systems.

Work on SEC's installation project began in July and is scheduled to reach completion in 2015.
