Electric System Inspection Software
Streamlining Inspection and Maintenance of Electric Systems!

ESI is a GIS/GPS based application that maximizes the value of field inspections and performs outstanding work management capabilities. ESI gets your company up and running quickly on a flexible system that delivers a key component of reliability centered maintenance (RCM) at a fraction of the cost of more costly maintenance and inspection systems.

Electric System Inspection - ESI

maximize the value of powerline inspections 

ESI enhances the process of inspecting and maintaining electric systems. ESI is specifically designed to assist with the management of conditions observed during aerial, ground, and climb & shake inspection patrols of electric systems.

Through the use of system priority codes, ESI helps ensure that maintenance efforts are focused on addressing observed inspection conditions. These priority codes are assigned to each observation through ESI’s inspection menu system. The customizable inspection menus can have different branches and different priority codes for each observation. With the proper use of the priority system, ESI helps ensure that maintenance efforts are focused on addressing observed conditions that directly affect safety, system reliability, and timeliness of cost-effective repairs. Conversely, using ESI helps you avoid spending money prematurely to repair items that should wait until more cost effective to do so.

Aerial Inspections

Because ESI is designed for the rigors of flight it stands apart from other field inspection systems. ESI is built for speed and accuracy so performing aerial inspections and adding observations is quick and easy.

ESI's unique inspection menus and push button driven interface enables rapid and accurate observation input which greatly reduces the potential for mistakes and maximizes the value of critical, costly aerial inspection time.

ESI Mobile provides the inspector with many of the same capabilities of our standard ESI product but from smaller computing platforms.

When you are in areas that are hard to get to (patrolling by ATV, horseback, foot, climb & shake, etc.) and you can't tote a laptop with you or if your storage space is limited, ESI Mobile is your perfect companion. 

Work Order Management

ESI captures field repair status and updates inspection records, ntegrates with 3rd Party Work Management Systems.

ESI can be used as a standalone inspection/work management tool or can interface with 3rd party work management systems.

ESI assists your field inspectors in recording valuable data while out in the field, and lets them focus on the job at hand, rather than wrestling with their computers.

Integrated Report Designer
The Integrated Report Designer allows you to generate transmission line inspection reports quickly and efficiently.

The report designer provides the user with all the tools for designing a report's appearance, along with the ability of simultaneous previewing. The designer's interface meets up-to-date requirements. It contains several toolbars, which can be docked wherever you want.
