Vancouver's Clevest Solutions, a provider of software for mobile workforce automation, has signed a memorandum of understanding with China Telecom and Guangdong Future Information Technology. BC Premier Christy Clark—not showing her cleavage for once (read: sarcasm)—oversaw the event. The ceremony was part of her BC Jobs and Trade Mission to China and India.
Clevest will partner with China Telecom to provide its Mobile Workforce Management and GPS-enabled Automatic Vehicle Location solutions to utility companies in South China.
“We’re very pleased to partner with China Telecom and Guangdong Future to expand Clevest’s business in the utility markets in China as they have strong and reliable relationships with utility customers,” stated Mr. Engerman. “We look forward to a long and successful future together.”
China Telecom provides integrated information services including the fixed-line telephone, mobile service, internet connection and applications services. Guangdong Future is a system integrator that specializes in computer communication networks, software and hardware development and information technology services. Clevest Solutions provides smart grid deployment and post-deployment operations exclusively for electric, gas and water utilities.
