Southern Company recently adopted a new technology that streamlines field-based data collection and inspection processes: Fulcrum. This internal-only webinar was created to share context and discuss the potential uses of this technology to digitize processes that had previously been cumbersome, as well as to provide lessons learned about adoption.

This webinar will be a conversational, "fireside chat" style discussion with Southern Company employees Ondra Lee and Chandler Merrill, who have used Fulcrum in a wide variety of situations. YOUR QUESTIONS ARE ENCOURAGED! Some specific topics we'll cover include:

  • Specific processes and tasks that were digitized
  • How the digitization process improved them
  • Challenges they faced while digitizing processes
  • How they encouraged adoption among hesitant workers
  • Field data collection and inspection projects that are appropriate for Fulcrum
