Improving utility field ops with location-based data

As a utility, almost everything you do happens outside an office, in areas that are remote, without readily-available landmarks, or outside of the reach of mobile networks – or all three. Despite these challenges, you’ve got to keep track of your people, your equipment, and their statuses. The question is, how?

Join Jake Freivald, VP of Fulcrum, for this free webinar to discover how location-based data can help you keep up with your people and assets in the field. Utility field operations supervisors and directors will learn that:

-Ditching pen and paper field inspections (and making the switch to digital) is key to getting real-time insights from your people and assets in the field.

-Preloaded location data with visual and spatial cues not only ensures your staff are in the right place, but also that your assets, whether machinery, electrical or fiber cables, or any other component of your utility platform, are where they should be – even without an available mobile network

- Inspection data complete with natively collected geolocation details provide incredible insight into operations on the ground that readily available in real-time, and able to be further analyzed and shared with stakeholders from VPs to government agencies.

Trust, but verify – preventing utility inspection fraud

Speaker: Jake Freivald, Fulcrum VP Product Marketing

Late in 2021, Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) faced a nightmare scenario: a former contract worker was alleged to have falsified as many as 3,000 electric system inspection reports. While PG&E scrambles to perform the missing inspections of areas of high risk for fire, it also is fielding serious questions about the supervision of its workers and contractors, and how the issue could have gone on for so long undetected. Unfortunately, PG&E is not alone in the problem of falsified inspection reports, leaving other utilities wondering if it could happen to them.


The short answer is yes. And the more workers you have in the field - and the less staff you have dedicated to supervising them - the more likely inspection fraud will occur. That is, unless you take concrete steps to prevent it.


Utility field supervisors and project managers attending this webinar will learn how implementing a digital field inspection management platform can help to prevent field worker inspection fraud as well as how to uncover misdeeds early, keeping your inspection data reliable (and your utility not liable).

Don’t Let Rework Devastate Your Deadlines: How digital quality inspections can recover losses in construction remediation

Speaker:  Jake Freivald, Fulcrum VP Product Marketing

Construction rework can have devastating effects on your deadlines and profits. Of course, some measure of rework in construction is expected — despite your best efforts — and is built into project budgets and timelines. But that doesn’t make it any less painful. So, what happens when you’ve gone over the job specs, plans, scope of work, and kept a watchful eye on workers, material and work product, only to find out some remediation is still necessary?

Digital quality inspections in construction can make the difference in the time and money lost in chasing rework. This technology can gather data to uncover causes, dodge defects and define a game plan to not only recover losses, but also boost your bottom line by providing:

- An early warning system to get quality updates and prevent overlooked defects
- A data-driven analysis of what went wrong and how to fix it
- Open lines of communication to contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and other stakeholders

A Data-Driven Approach to Mitigate Safety and Quality Risk in Construction

Speakers: Fulcrum VP Jake Freivald

Experts point to the growing importance of data-driven management in construction safety. We should be able to use the increasingly available amount of construction safety-related data to improve safety decisions and protocols. But when our safety inspection data is dispersed among hard drives, filing cabinets, and Construction Management Systems, it becomes extremely difficult to assemble, process, and analyze this data. Our safety program remains outside the domain of modern analysis techniques, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML).

By using consistent digital inspection processes, we can make our data more available for modern analysis, which helps us deliver insights and knowledge that address the human and financial risks of the construction environment. Digitization, then, is the first step in more effectively mitigating construction safety and quality risk across all of our projects and clients.

Learning Objectives:

- Learn how to adapt quality control, safety, and data collection processes to meet requirements of different clients and contractors

- Obtain on-site safety and quality control sign-off from all parties

- Capture information from any source, including visual inspections, nondestructive testing, drones, and more

- Demonstrate your improved safety posture for a lower EMR and a better company brand

Learn how to leverage technology to give rookie inspectors the benefit of a veteran's experience, even when they're working alone

Speaker: Fulcrum VP Jake Freivald

You’re in a tough spot when it comes to getting inexperienced inspectors onboarded. Learning by Zoom is hard, and you still need to minimize contact between novices and experienced mentors.

Throw in some changes — like new equipment or regulations — and you’ve got real issues with the consistency and quality of inspection results, as well as the productivity of your team.

But there’s hope. Clear, precise instructions delivered at the point of inspection smooth out your onboarding process, arming a rookie with the experience of a 20-year veteran. Building digital checklists as part of a complete mobile app provides opportunities for better supervision, mentoring, and results quickly — in a safe environment.

This webinar will show you:

- How detailed checklists shortcut the learning curve and ensure high quality work from novice inspectors

- How digitizing checklists can prevent information overload — while still capturing the details

- How inspectors and supervisors gain opportunities for mentorship and guidance in real-time when they use mobile apps

Lessons learned from digital transformation of inspections

Speaker: Fulcrum VP Jake Freivald
Every buzzword represents an idea that may not be as good as its implementation. How do we gain the benefits implied by the name "digital transformation" -- dramatic improvements in performance, agility, and business intelligence that result from putting digital technology at the heart of our business processes -- with as few hiccups as possible along the way?

Lessons learned from digital transformation practitioners can help. For instance, they can:

Help us see what specific benefits we're likely to gain, rather than platitudes about "better safety" or "lower cost", which helps us set realistic expectations for executives.

Help us understand the difficulties that arise from personal or corporate-culture objections to our transformation efforts.

Help us communicate to keep every part of our organization aligned, nurture employees who might be reluctant to make changes, and demonstrate success.

This webinar would include lessons learned from our customers (though we won't always be able to name them) that could help safety professionals manage the digital transformation of inspections within their organizations.

Streamline Your OSHA and Safety Reporting by Going Digital

Speaker: Fulcrum VP Jake Freivald

Inspection documentation needs to be assembled accurately, completely, and very quickly when OSHA comes knocking. Digitally managing inspections reshapes the old paper-and-filing cabinet process by ensuring that anyone who needs it — OSHA or other stakeholders — can access all of the information they need at all times.

Organizations that digitize safety inspections, procedures, and data collection also see improvements in their ability to demonstrate the ROI of their safety programs, to share metrics that encourage a culture of safety, and to use their supervisors to oversee a larger number of safety officers.
