CAD/GPS/GIS Data Integration & Public Relations

Presented by
Beehive IndustriesNutriJect

The Iowa Rural Water Association invites you to join us for a free workshop co-sponsored by BeeHive Industries and Nutri-Ject.

BeeHive Industries will present on CAD, GPS, GIS, video inspection data integration and infrastructure management. The presentation will focus on various datasets that many organizations will have in some format or another and how that information can be utilized to kick-start an asset and infrastructure management program. They will walk through data sources, data collection techniques, data conversion techniques, and utilizing the data for proactive maintenance of a system.

The presentation will illustrate the benefits of using technology to track issues from a service request or work order through to completion and use the information for annual reporting. Technology can be used by management or office personnel to document a task and assign it to field staff, track its progress, and report back to the appropriate party as necessary.

Nutri-Ject will present on the importance of water and wastewater systems having an active public relations plan.
