RouteSmart for Utilities
Work Orders, Surveys & Inspections
Utility Routing Tools that Account for Every Challenge
Utilities are responsible for conducting a variety of surveys and inspections within their service territory. From leak surveys, to cathodic gas inspections, to audits of Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), these tasks continually challenge utilities with a complex workload planning and geographical territory assignment problem that is difficult to plan manually. While compliance software exists to help utilities determine what assets need to be inspected and when periodic inspections must be made to satisfy the statutory requirements for inspection frequency, in many cases the assignment of these locations to routes is still largely a cumbersome manual process.
Route planning software solutions from RouteSmart Technologies help utilities keep up with the task of managing and organizing their survey and inspection workload. RouteSmart’s unique high-density address balancing and sequencing solvers are able to tackle the largest workload planning problems faced by a utility. Using RouteSmart’s advanced utility routing tools, utilities can build maintenance routes considering several different factors for workload and time balancing such as daily goals for number of services to perform and the best way to walk or drive the routes to help insure that regulatory inspection and survey requirements are fulfilled effectively.
