Henkels& McCoy more than double productivity for Joint Attachment Pole Assessments with ikeGPS

“ikeSolutions Poles delivered a return on investment before completion of the first project.”Brad Mayo, Project Manager.

HOUSTON, TX – October 24, 2012 -- Henkels & McCoy (H&M) has been conducting a joint attachment pole audit and detailed equipment condition review for the City of Riverside, California. The first phase of the joint attachment audit, for 3,000 poles, needed to be completed within 26 weeks. H&M realized that to get this initial phase completed on time they needed to collect data faster, and their existing combination of equipment - an inventory map, GPS, laser rangefinder, measuring tape and digital camera, would not get the job done.

H&M purchased ikeSolutions Poles.  This mobile GIS solution enables all pole attachment measurements to be made from a single ikeGPS photograph.ikeSolutions Poles not only enables fast, accurate and safe measurements, it also provides a digital, photo-verifiable record for each pole and the related joint attachments. Pictures and associated data are captured together and are therefore viewed and managed from one source. Data is entered using customizable forms that are easily created and deployed with drag and drop workflow software. Additionally, since all the data is digitally recorded, there is no risk of transcription errors.

Previously H&M were able collect data for about 20 poles per day. Using ikeSolutions Poles this increased to 45 poles per day. This in turn reduced their time to complete the 3,000 pole project from over 30 weeks to less than 14 weeks. Faster project completion means additional project work can be scheduled and revenue is increased.

Brad Mayo, Project Manager, further commented“The photos are used to conduct fast and accurate measurements, and provide photo-verifiable evidence. We also now carry less equipment around in the field.”
