Effectively manage utilities with detailed imagery and data insights
Utilities provide the public with vital resources—electricity, natural gas, and water. Having a comprehensive inventory and performing proper maintenance of utility assets is vital for safety, reliability, service quality and customer satisfaction. Planning and engineering new and modernized networks, mitigating potential risks, and managing service disruption are far more difficult with inaccurate GIS data. Maintaining accurate and up-to-date asset records and site conditions surrounding your network can be a daunting task, especially when faced with the following challenges:
Comprehensive pole inspections require extensive field data capture to support engineering, load calculations and regulatory compliance, along with safety and risk mitigation. Asset verification is vital to streamline planning and engineering, improve overall asset data quality and completeness, and reduce potential risks. Cyclomedia’s extensive data dictionary combines automated processes with skilled analysis to deliver actionable results faster and at lower costs than traditional field walk-outs. These results can easily be integrated into the leading structural analysis software and all major GIS platforms.
As utilities work more closely with telecommunications and cable companies to optimize space on utility poles, accurate GIS and ERP records are more important than ever. Demand for utility pole infrastructure for communications attachments continues to grow and is increasingly more complicated and difficult to manage. Having up to date information on pole ownership and pole attachments can help a utility manage attachment requests and recover considerable revenue associated with billable attachments.
