    iRestore: the product

    Introducing the iRestore suite of apps for utilities

    iRestore is a patent-pending suite of mobile applications combined with an intelligent, location-aware cloud platform that helps utilities get "eyes on" the scene of grid damage. With iRestore, utility workers can automatically pinpoint damage, prioritize response and perform repairs with the right personnel and parts. iRestore's First Responder app enables utilities to partner with first responders (fire and police) in the communities they serve to crowdsource information on grid damage in real time, giving the utility "eyes in the field."
