Due to Federal Legislation, pipeline owners and operators must verify their pipeline’s Maximum Allowable Operating Pressure (MAOP). This unique verification process can provide a challenge to the pipeline company. 3SG satisfies the essential component of making a permanent and structured digital record of pertinent pipeline records. At 3SG, we maintain imaging assets that are specifically designed to capture high quality images from a variety of pipeline alignment maps or as-builts. Our data capture process eases the implementation of a structured document management system tailored to the operator’s work flows, existing storage structures and organizational philosophies. Using our vast knowledge of document management, we can assure traceable, verifiable, complete, and reliable results for our clients.
Reduce costs with Automated Systems
Delivering energy to consumers is critical, and so is working efficiently to save time and money. 3SG works with utility companies to streamline workflow by helping them transition from a paper-intensive to a paperless environment, with as little disruption to work procedures as possible.
Although 3SG has created many solutions for utility companies, the most beneficial industry-specific solutions include the following: Meter/Service Line Cards, MAOP documents, Purchasing and Fleet Cards, GIS integration, consolidation of billing services, and contract management.
Meter/Service Line Cards
Utility companies may have thousands or even millions of meter cards that are difficult for workers to access. Typically these cards are still in paper format, are stored in various locations, and have multiple renditions. We understand what an inconvenience this can be and we understand you have industry regulatory mandates; therefore, we have used our industry expertise to develop a complete solution.
Our solution is capable of taking millions and more of these handwritten cards, and converting them to digital images for easy access from the field. By implementing this solution, utility companies automatically save time, money and space, and they increase operational efficiency. By allowing meter cards to be accessible online for workers in the field, they no longer have to report to headquarters to get their job done. They have up-to-date documents on hand and can make any necessary changes at the point of service. This makes utility companies more efficient by saving personnel time, money, and reducing document storage.
Purchasing & Fleet Card Solutions
Automatically audit all purchasing and fleet card expenses based on business rules, and establish an easy method for supervisor to approve expenses for each card. Our solution allows for approvers to skip the purchases that will automatically get approved, allowing them to only focus on the purchases that did not match the company’s set regulations. Not only is this process more efficient now, but it also eases the responsibilities associated with auditing.
