Are you wasting valuable time rummaging through hard drives, DVDs, and VHS tapes to find the information you need from your sewer inspection data?

If you answer “yes” to the following four questions you’re definitely not storing your sewer inspection data in the cloud.

In fact, you’re still working like it’s 1999. And that’s no way to work. Not in 2019.

So, take the test and find out if you’re still using a 20th-century workflow.

Are you ready?

Does this scenario sound familiar?

You need to find the video of a damaged segment of pipe in order to target that location for a spot repair. So, you spend hours digging through old school media like DVDs, hard drives, and VHS tapes to find it.

That’s if you find it. You hope that you’ll find it. You know it’s there…somewhere. Maybe you just need to ask someone else to help you find it. It will turn up, hopefully.

How about this scenario? Familiar?

You send a contractor out to do a sewer inspection. The contractor completes the inspection, leaves the site, travels back to the office, pulls the video from the camera, copies it onto a flash drive (or DVD), and puts it in the mail to you.

Several hours later – maybe even the next day – you receive the flash drive containing the video. As soon as you look at it you let out a big sigh because you know it needs to be re-done. The quality is poor. So, you send the contractor back out again.

The contractor goes through the same routine, copies the video onto a flash drive (or DVD) and puts it in the mail to you again.  If you’re lucky, you receive the new video that same day. If not, the next day.

You’ve now waited two days to see an inspection video.

  1. Are you using a patchwork of legacy software?

Keeping track of permissions and user abilities is difficult. Your contractors need access to certain data while your engineering department needs access to other data.

You assign user abilities and permissions on a “need to know” basis and it isn’t easy keeping track of them all. In fact, people are getting access to things they’re not supposed to see or don’t need to see.

You start to wonder if there’s a better way to work, in 2019.

  1. Are you having trouble uploading sewer inspection videos?

Uploading sewer inspection videos to the internal office server isn’t easy. In fact, only the more tech-savvy employees can do it themselves. Everyone else needs to ask for help.

If you answered ‘yes’ to these questions it means your spending more time reacting to emergencies and less time making preventative maintenance decisions.

You’re still working like it’s 1999.
