PPS Quality Control & Quality Assurance
PPS maintains a multi-layer approach to Quality: 1) Personal Accountability of each technician, 2) Project-level Quality Control performed by supervisory personnel, and 3) Company-wide Quality Assurance.
PPS Storm Response
Our company was founded to provide the utility industry with technical services and support all major aspects of your operations. Damages caused by storms and other natural disasters are an inevitable part of operating a utility system. Our personnel have responded to assist contract, utility, and more technically outfitted PPS crews to investigate trouble calls and report back to open work orders, perform pipeline investigations and wash out surveys, flag for tree-trimming and electric crews, and distribute emergency relief supplies to customers.
PPS Data Management
High efficiency and accuracy is directly tied to the effective use of technology in today’s fast paced work environment. PPS has found that utilizing custom software for use with Tablet and other handheld devices can deliver the results necessary to manage, track, schedule, and report field information in batch or real-time basis; this is critical step to success of any large-scale program. As an integral part of being fully turnkey, our team links to client systems and feeds information to our field technicians to document the inspection in a fully paperless system. The software reduces human error by utilizing data validation and eliminates double-data entry on the client’s side by sending the information digitally back to the client’s systems. Additionally, clients can gain access to our web-based Utility Management System or UMS which tracks program progress by type and geographic, stores historical inspection information including pictures, and provides mapping overlays of the location.
PPS uses the ‘universal soldier approach’ to completing repairs either on an in-line or return trip program.
