The Utilities Specialist
For over 25 years, Panasonic has been working with the biggest names in Utilities. From day one, we’ve understood the need for built-for-purpose, work-anywhere devices, developing products that meet – and surpass – the specific demands of the Utilities industry. With this approach, along with our experience of the evolving technology in the sector, we’re able to create the perfect partnership between user and device.
How can technology shift challenges to success?
In a bid to stem rising costs and improve efficiencies, utilities companies are increasingly turning to new, robust technologies that can allow their field agents to perform vital repairs, upgrades and diagnostic checks in an efficient and timely manner. This saves on labour and operational costs and helps utilities companies remain competitive.
Some of the biggest concerns are:
- The retirement of Australia’s ageing and inefficient coal-fired power stations.
- The falling costs for solar, wind and battery storage.
- Consumer preferences changing in response to high electricity prices and emerging technologies.
- Rising domestic gas prices.
- Climate change requiring a transition from fossil fuels to zero emission renewable power sources.

Seven keys to success
Panasonic TOUGHBOOK rugged devices feature seven fundamental technologies that make them unique and invaluable to utilities companies and field engineers around the globe. Finding a harmonious balance between these technologies has been perfected by Panasonic over the last 25 years, with specialised technologies being developed in house and tested to withstand the harshest conditions.
What does this mean for your organisation?
The potential for dramatic improvements in response times, route planning and job management, as well as increased first-time fixes, higher repair quality, better customer service and greater profitability. All this, while cutting downtime and costs significantly.
Stay connected on the move
The ‘connected vehicle’ is a central pillar of business today. Giving utilities engineers technology and in-vehicle equipment that’s durable and optimises connectivity, even when they’re travelling, is essential to remaining competitive.
TOUGHBOOK delivers everything you need to take your office on the road including instant access to real-time information, digital documentation on the go, service history or spare-part information, world-class navigation tools and job schedule updates, and access to power whether on the road or on-site.
Customised vehicle integration
In conjunction with partners we offer a complete range of vehicle mounting solutions and services, from consultancy right through to in-vehicle installation. We also offer a range of configurations, and the ability to create bespoke solutions where required.
No compromising on passenger safety
And as you’d expect from TOUGHBOOK technology, our docking solutions are pushed to the very limits of endurance. To achieve all relevant ADR (Australian Design Rules) safety certifications and compliance, we test each model for vehicle impact and vibrations, ensuring that everything remains secure in the event of an accident, to protect those in the vehicle.
World-class service and support
From pre- to post-sales, and from product implementation to roll-out, we work in close collaboration with our utilities customers to ensure everything runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
Our specialist, and often tailored support makes all the difference: especially when it requires the deployment of hundreds or even thousands of devices across national and multi-national organisations.
