As-Built Surveying Software for Gas Utilities: 9 Reasons to Choose CartoPac Construction Manager
We built CartoPac Construction Manager with one simple goal in mind: to improve the way gas distribution companies manage installation, repair, material sourcing and selection, and human resources. Our as-built surveying software provides utility stakeholders with accurate data throughout the construction process to ensure a successful project for all involved.
Below are nine ways CartoPac Construction Manager can support your utility construction management needs.
1. All-In-One, Integrated Solution
CartoPac offers a complete solution when it comes to gas pipeline and infrastructure construction management. Construction Manager can streamline and assist with a variety of tasks, including:
- Managing new installations
- racking repair progress
- Determining appropriate materials
- Finding qualified operators and crew members
CartoPac’s as-built surveying software also seamlessly integrates with leading work order, enterprise asset management systems, and GIS databases to make the most of the processes you already have in place.
2. Quick and Easy Onboarding
Onboarding new systems and processes is a major pain point for many utility construction projects. While many management solutions require months of planning to get up and running, our as-built survey software and construction management solutions can be deployed in a matter of weeks.
Sluggish onboarding can set teams behind schedule and over budget. That’s why we prioritize making it a quick and painless process for everyone involved.
3. In-Sync Applications for Every Setting
Both field technicians and supervisory personnel have very distinct needs when it comes to utility construction management. CartoPac’s as-built survey software offers two separate applications – a mobile app with map display and intelligent mobile workflows, and a robust, browser-based application for data visualization, analysis, and reporting.
No matter where you’re working, CartoPac Server synchronizes your data to ensure you have access anytime, anywhere.
4. Compliant with PHMSA Standards
PHMSA compliance is crucial for any new utility construction management tool. CartoPac’s as-built surveying software not only meets but exceeds current PHMSA tracking and traceability requirements for gas distribution pipelines.
5. Error & Incident Prevention
Even small incidents in the gas utility industry can be devastating for your project. Luckily, many of these incidents can be minimized or prevented with CartoPac Construction Manager.
12% of all significant gas distribution incidents are a product of material failure. CartoPac’s gas utility software can help your team with material selection and installation to reduce this risk.
35% of gas distribution incidents are due to excavation damage, which is typically caused by incorrect locating practices. CartoPac’s as-built surveying software offers seamless integrations with GIS databases to ensure accurate location and prevent unnecessary damage.
6. Near-Real Time Reporting
When it comes to utility construction management, every second counts. CartoPac’s gas utility software offers near-real time capture and reporting to identify errors and inconsistencies immediately. Once an inconsistency has been found, it can be resolved quickly with minimal impact to your schedule, budget, and workflow.
7. High-Fidelity Data Analysis & Visualization
Through CartoPac Reports, you can review KPIs, construction progress, and completed work summaries. With GIS integration, you’ll see location-specific data to inform your next steps. From broad data visualization to inspection workflows for mains, valves, fittings, and work requests, there are data-supported features for every member of the team.
