From collection to construction, this integration puts pole-loading models at your fingertips, and seamlessly improves your workflows. 

With the launch of broadband and 5G networks onto aging infrastructure and the impacts from increasing weather events, pole analysis tools and processes also need to be updated to meet the needs of the industry today.  The arduous task of hands-on acquisition of measurements, and then manually inputting up to a 100 data points poses physical challenges and transposition errors. On top of that, there are issues that the industry faces when trying to manage, analyze, and then make verified decisions to take action on their distribution assets.

SPIDA Software and NV5 Geospatial have partnered to develop a first-of-its-kind pole management integration that is faster, safer, has greater accuracy, more consistent results, and delivers a seamless workflow from a single source of truth.
