UK Power Networks, which serves a quarter of the UK’s population with its electricity distribution network, is investing more than £1million in mobile mapping technology and support from Sigma Seven to help optimise its fieldwork activities.

We look forward to working with the company’s team to make the most of its significant investment in enterprise systems by providing the tools they need to enable their work at the point of action.
