What Electric Utility Professionals Say About Eos

Glenn Williams

“We do about 25% to 35% fewer truck rollouts for our locates now. At $10 a ticket and 13,000 tickets per month, that’s a lot of savings.”

Glenn Williams

Enterprise Manager, Tri-County Electric Cooperative / TX, United States

Kenneth Klopp

“The Arrow Gold and ArcGIS Collector combination proved to be extremely easy to use, plus it had centimeter accuracy right on my iPad. I tap on the app’s Submit button, and the updated asset location is instantly live in ArcGIS Online.”

Kenneth Klopp

GIS Analyst, Utilities Commission of New Smyrna Beach / FL, United States

Herminio Rodriguez

“The financial commitment was small from the city, but the return [on investment] was huge. We could start capturing this massive amount of data that we really need.”

Herminio Rodriguez

Director of Information Technology, City of Sarasota / FL, United States

Mike George

“This laser mapping solution has saved our drafters hours. In the survey world, that’s the difference between the project being profitable or just breaking even.”

Mike George

(Former) Project Manager and GISP, DDSI Global / CO, United States

Zac Petix

“I think the reasons why the Arrow GNSS receivers were preferred by our inspectors over other hardware solutions were that the Arrow receivers were easy to configure, simple to deploy, lightweight, rugged and above all else, accurate.”

Zac Petix

(Former) Vice President of Geospatial Services, Palmetto Engineering / GA, United States

Kurt Towler

“Most of the time they got into the 2-centimeter range. That’s nearly perfect for us. Without this RTK network, you couldn’t really guarantee better than twelve feet. Many assets moved 50-100 feet. That’s a big difference, when you look at a road and want to know on which side of the road the pole is located.”

Kurt Towler

GIS Supervisor, Sulphur Springs Valley Electric Cooperative / AZ, United States

Nichole Eshbaugh

“We did our due diligence in researching the Eos Arrow GNSS receivers. What it came down to was their ease of use with Futura’s FieldPro mobile app and their dedicated customer support.”

Nichole Eshbaugh

CTO, Tri-County Electric Cooperative / Texas, United States

Kurt Towler 2

“Without this metadata, it was impossible to tell which locations were right or wrong. Many of our facilities were not in the right spots, so you didn’t know what data to trust.”

Kurt Towler

GIS Supervisor, Sulphur Springs Valley Electric Cooperative / AZ, United States

Zac Petix 2

“One of the biggest kicks I get is watching the smile on my client’s face when they realize for themselves that the Arrow GNSS receivers really are as easy to use as I promised.”
