Fast, simple work order creation is a key component of efficient sewer inspection workflows. WinCan makes it easy to create work orders on the fly from anywhere with our cloud-based inspection platform.
When Sewermatics hit the market in 2021, it changed the way inspection teams thought about condition assessment and coding. Suddenly, utilities could offload thousands of inspections for processing through WinCan’s AI engine, and results started turning major workflow backlogs into safely stored, ready-to-use sewer data. Entering 2023, Sewermatics AI scanning has come to WinCan’s cloud environment to deliver a sewer inspection experience that both expedites workflows and alleviates workloads.
Geneva, Switzerland — capital of the Genève canton and the second most populated city in the country — is an iconic municipality situated on the southwestern border with France. It's here at the foot of the Alps that V. Guimet Fils SA works to provide maintenance and sanitation services to improve community health and protect the local environment. With more than 100 employees and 40 rapid intervention vehicles on standby, the Guimet Fils SA team boasts 24-hour service, conducting inspections and rehabilitation projects for the entire canton, an area of over 100 square miles (280 km2).
There are lots of opportunities for important sewer data to fall through the cracks in the journey from collection to analysis. If data is stored, transferred and shared in physical formats such as paper, it is at greater risk of loss than data stored in secure, digital environments. Digital data storage offers much more reliable containers for sewer data than physical methods. Not to mention, inspection software with NASSCO-certified coding modules helps ensure outgoing data aligns with the proper condition assessment standard. These and other factors can impact the accuracy, completeness and usability of your data.
Innovation in the wastewater industry is thriving. Sewer teams have begun to adopt technologies like AI and HD video capture to propel everyday workflows. Federal funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is enabling utilities across the country to address aging infrastructure. And sewer inspection teams of every size are transitioning to cloud-based data solutions that keep them connected and tracking projects more efficiently. The infrastructure world is changing fast, and 2023 is setting the stage for shifts in technology and workflow efficiency.
Collaboration brings professionals together to employ unique skills and experience for the good of the project at hand. In sewer inspection, collaboration is essential to keeping wastewater utilities, contractors and broader municipal departments connected and moving toward safer systems with cleaner communities.
When your sewer team works closely with other municipal departments, it’s essential to have clear pathways from your inspection database to your asset database. WinCan’s integration with Cartegraph’s municipal asset management platform enables wastewater utilities to work closely with broader infrastructure teams to ensure that the city’s data is accurate, up-to-date and ready for analysis. Designed to help communities sync their sewer data and streamline their asset management workflows, Cartegraph is a natural companion for WinCan’s sewer inspection management capabilities. Our integration delivers a fast, complete data transfer that supports more flexible workflows and helps you get the most out of both solutions.
Good data is ready for analysis when you are. Sewers are essential infrastructure, and prompt, actionable inspection results help keep our communities safe, healthy and clean. In today’s world, that means seamless, bidirectional data transfer that keeps databases updated in real time, with results rippling throughout the system to enable data-driven maintenance decisions.
WinCan recently received the Solution Alignment Award at the 2022 Esri Infrastructure Management and GIS (IMGIS) Conference held in Palm Springs, California. The award was presented to WinCan for demonstrating innovative and creative ways to solve complex problems with Esri’s ArcGIS software.
Wastewater project managers are often responsible for overseeing progress on many different sewer maintenance tasks. Keeping track of crew members, vehicles, and inspection equipment is only half the job. Those resources also need to be effectively allocated to ensure the job gets done. Not only does work order tracking create accountability for your team, it also allows managers to make more informed decisions about budgets and scheduling. WinCan Web delivers all the tools necessary for managers to monitor job progress and oversee everyday operations effectively .
