Thirty years ago, utilities managed just fine using data management processes that by and large were based on manual labor and analog tools. Today, like companies in nearly every market, utilities are responding to business challenges with technology — with one highly effective solution being automated, digital data management. Adept deliver increased productivity and efficiency in daily operations, support business strategy, and help utilities thrive in a challenging environment.

File management and search. As utilities transition away from reliance on 2D paper-based technical drawings to scanned drawings, 3D models, and geospatial information, they must find a way to manage an overwhelming number of digital files. Before long, they realize the job is too complex for Windows file management, and they find themselves facing problems such as search limitations, huge numbers of duplicate files, accidental overwriting and deletion of files, and the potential for intellectual property to be stolen by a disgruntled employee.

When users can find the information they need quickly, productivity benefits tremendously, and that translates to faster project turnaround and staff that spends time doing value-added work rather than chasing documents.

Preservation of tribal knowledge. Technology also is helping to capture and preserve the institutional knowledge of employees heading into retirement. Utilities must capture not only their technical expertise, but also their knowledge of where documents are located and how they are organized.

But it’s not enough to simply capture institutional knowledge about where files are stored in Microsoft Word documents, for example. Although this effort is a step in the right direction and records the information for posterity, future employees will still need to take the time to read through the explanation of where files are stored. With Adept in place, a utility can capture and preserve that institutional knowledge in a way that is available to employees now and into the future.

Our Clients are Saying...

A lot of our relaying work is very meticulous, so everything has to be absolutely right. One errant wire could cause a contact to have an open and close, which could then dump out an entire substation.”
