AyaBiz® Locate Request Management

Software Solution: AyaBiz Locate Request Management

 
AUTOMATICALLY CAPTURE FOOTAGE INSPECTED OR TECH PATROLS IN AN HCA, IN REAL TIME, USING SATELLITE DATA. VISUALIZE WORK AREA DATA — WITH PIPELINE CORRIDOR AND HCA INFORMATION — ON DIGITAL MAPS TO ENSURE COMPLIANCE.
 
Third-party excavation damage is responsible for more significant pipeline incidents than any other cause. AyaBiz® Locate Request automates, manages, and optimizes locate request work area patrol operations.

AyaBiz Locate Request captures data electronically as field work is performed, improving data capture efficiency and ensuring compliance. Because it’s evidence-based, the focus can shift from whether the work has occurred to work quality and performance. It also reduces paperwork processing and eliminates lost documents.

AyaBiz Locate Request electronically supervises locate request activities —  from monitoring to patrolling —  and digitally display captured site information, with pipeline corridor and HCAs data on digital maps, to ensure compliance.

AyaBiz Locate Request comprises several key components, including

  • 24/7 Web access lets you route tickets to inspectors at home or in the field streamlining workflow and reducing costs. Inspectors can spend more time in the field close to the pipelines, reducing the risk of unrecorded excavations and pipeline incidents.
  • AyaBiz Locate Request Web Portal is the information and workflow portal to a geo-coded asset management database. This portal provides a view into pipeline infrastructure as it relates to locate request work areas. It displays standby or drive patrols in a particular work area, along a transmission pipeline or an HCA corridor.
  • Using the AyaBiz Locate Request Web Portal, supervisors can quickly review inspector field-work details (such as risk level, ticket number, work type, adjacent line, contractor, and location information), complete with excavation monitoring and observation reports and site photos.
  • AyaBiz Locate Request Dashboard offers supervisors the ability to review field work statistics and technician performance metrics. Supervisors can track total footage inspected in region or time frame, time spent within 50 feet of a line in an HCA corridor, the last time a tech patrolled a pipeline in an HCA, or the time spent monitoring excavation sites.
  • AyaBiz Locate Request Mobile captures time and GPS-based locate request work- area data (such as walking or driving patrols) along with photos, field notes, and detailed reporting to optimize mobile workforce performance and field compliance.
  • AyaBiz GPS-Tagged Database stores GPS- tagged Locate Request Tickets enabling simple search functions that reduce audit preparation time and costs. The AyaBiz business intelligence layer automates locate request compliance data analysis and streamlines field supervisory processes.
