Collecting data from sewer system inspections can be a complicated, tedious process, often including multiple software programs and pieces of hardware. Using the equipment can be complicated and time consuming. Trio-Vision faces those issues head-on with AssetDMS.

Utilizing an operator-friendly, intuitive touch-screen interface, AssetDMS makes collecting and analyzing pipe survey data second nature. The data collection process is simple and highly streamlined, with built-in user prompts that ensure critical information is captured accurately. Compatible with a wide range of manufacturers’ CCTV systems, it allows for import/export from any certified Pipeline Assessment and Certification Program (PACP)/Lateral Assessment and Certification Program (LACP)/Manhole Assessment and Certification Program (MACP) database. PACP reference photos are included to eliminate the need to memorize all the codes and rules.

“The entire system was developed with the end user always in mind,” says Hildemar Sanchez, software sales and support and electronic engineer with Trio-Vision. “It is made simple and quick to use, minimizing data entry time and maximizing accuracy.” 

A comprehensive and extensive reporting suite provides easy-to-understand analysis reports to help technicians make well-informed and accurate decisions regarding the health and rehabilitation requirements of underground infrastructure systems. The data collection process was developed specifically to enable the user in the field to collect data without having to manage multiple screens and complex database software programs. Utilizing the touch-screen interface is second nature, especially for young, technology-savvy technicians.

Users can select their choice of video-recording formats, and a continuous digital video recording is made of the inspection view as it appears on the TV monitor. This becomes a permanent record of defects found. The digital video encoding includes both sound and video. These images or video clips can be easily launched for viewing during inspection report review. Depending on the nature of the project, video logging and image capture are available. These may be entered in video surveys either in real time or later, from previously recorded inspections.

“The system is the result of 30 years of industry field knowledge combined with 24 years of software development and process reengineering,” Sanchez says. “Users have found it very easy to use, and it doesn’t require the tech to memorize any NASSCO regulations to generate a fully compliant inspection. That minimum training time is key.” 800-443-3761;
