Black & Veatch and Zinier Keep the World Running with AI-Driven Field Service Automation

Overland Park, KS and San Francisco – November 18, 2019 – Today, Zinier, the leader in intelligent field service automation, and Black & Veatch, a top-ranked leader in global telecommunications services, announced a strategic technology initiative that brings project execution into the age of data. 

Driven by the digital economy and skyrocketing connectivity, large infrastructure projects and field teams are becoming highly distributed. The traditional methods of field and office management are falling short as industries evolve into the digital age. Through the power of automation and analytics, industries can optimize task completion and help develop the workforce of the future. 

To do this, Black & Veatch is implementing Zinier’s intelligent field service automation platform, ISAC, to deepen real-time visibility into the field, anticipate service disruptions through AI-driven recommendations, and improve operational efficiencies by automating manual front-office, back-office, and field-office tasks. ISAC will help ensure faster, more seamless communication among Black & Veatch’s extensive field services workforce. 

“ISAC’s intelligent routing takes many of the manual steps out of project management tasks like work order assignments, change orders, and recordkeeping,” said David Simmons, Senior Director of Technology and Innovation at Black & Veatch, Telecommunications. “Our project teams connect on one real-time, integrated platform for streamlined operations from the field to the office and back again.”

“Black & Veatch builds the telecommunications infrastructure that underpins the fast-moving digital advances we’re seeing right now. They’re innovating as a company from the inside-out,” said Arka Dhar, co-founder and CEO at Zinier. “Our partnership highlights Black & Veatch’s commitment to customer excellence and its dedication to building digital systems that support next-generation workforces and leaps in innovation.” 

This new initiative builds upon Black & Veatch’s 100-year legacy of continued innovation and Zinier’s mission to help progressive companies make the jump from reactive field service management to proactive field service automation.
