PORR is one of the largest Austrian construction companies and one of the leading infrastructure specialists in Europe with more than 16,000 employees and a production output of around EUR 3.5 billion (as of 2015). With the asset tracking solution of A1 digital, PORR is now able to digitize their vehicles and construction machines with a unified solution across manufacturer and the year of manufacture. All mileage and operating hours are recorded digitally and transferred to the central IT system. This creates transparency regarding utilization, usage behavior, and maintenance conditions and enables optimized utilization of the high-value assets. With the roll-out monitoring system of A1 digital, PORR employees were able to equip the vehicles themselves after a train-the-trainer session. With a roll-out rate of approx. 1,000 vehicles per month in 3 countries and 30 locations, the winter season was ideally used and downtime for the setup could be reduced to a minimum.

For utilities, on the other hand, the smart metering infrastructure is the foundation for the upcoming transition to decentralized, renewable energy sources.
