- Faster, more accurate inspections are enabled through the application’s guided assessment
- Online/offline allows inspections to continue without the need for connectivity to GIS or WMS systems
- Materials and inspection forms for repair are captured and sent automatically to WMS
- Easy prioritization for infrastructure repairs, including calculation of customers
affected by possible equipment issues in a particular geographic area
