Sync Samsara vehicle locations with NISC's utility management system to optimize vehicle dispatch to an outage location.
This integration is owned and managed by SwingDev, a 3rd party System Integrator on Samsara's Experts Marketplace. There is a deployment fee for this integration.
The integration includes the following features:
Sync vehicle GPS with NISC to show current location in their Outage Management System (OMS) so that managers can appropriately dispatch a vehicle to an outage location.
NISC will handle customer deployments. If you do not have an existing relationship with NISC, reach out through their contact form.
SwingDev, a 3rd party developer on Samsara's Experts Marketplace, manages the integration middleware. In order to grant NISC access to Samsara data, SwingDev must receive a "Read only" Samsara API Token from the customer.
Follow these steps to complete the process:
Notify your NISC rep that you want to enable vehicle location sync with Samsara
Provide a list of Samsara vehicles to your NISC rep: the unique Samsara Vehicle ID will be used as the “Map Code” or "AVL ID" in NISC
- Download your list of vehicles, including the unique Samsara Vehicle ID, under Settings > Devices > More Actions > Upload CSV > Click on "Gateways List". Column A will contain the Vehicle ID. Note that the report includes a "G" in front of the 15-digit number; this "G" should be removed, leaving the Samsara Vehicle ID that NISC will use for AVL ID.
- If you need help getting the unique Samsara Vehicle ID, ask your Samsara rep or email firstname.lastname@example.org
- NISC will complete vehicle ID mapping in their software
