Precision Pipeline Solutions, LLC (PPS) partners with utilities to compliment and act as an extension of internal staff to complete high volumes of regulatory compliance inspections, recurring testing and surveys, meter reading, collection, in-situ repairs, and other support services. Our staff are experienced utility personnel, trained to meet your needs in a highly effective manner.
Active Service Offering
During training, our personnel are equipped with the technical utility knowledge, navigation, and customer service skills required to successfully complete the inspection or route in a highly efficient manner. We cross-train employees to be able to deliver a fully turnkey product while on your footprint.
The PPS Advantage is that our technicians can seamlessly integrate with our more technical business units for meter exchanges, large scale repairs, ERT / AMR installations, coatings and other value-add services. Our survey and inspection services are complimented by our technical expertise in pressure control, coatings, meter exchange and construction; we’re not just here to complete a unit, but ensure the continued regulatory compliance of your infrastructure.
At PPS, we live a safety culture that believes every injury or accident is preventable. Personnel act in adherence to our culture and wear PPE according to a Health & Safety Plan which is created by PPS and approved by the client. Our fleet is deployed to reflect and uphold the image of the utility client we are serving as well as give customers a sense of ease when we enter their property.
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 employs a workforce vested in continued learning and development. As such, our training programs are centered around the concept that education never stops. We utilize hands-on mock training facilities at our headquarters and mentorship in-field to develop employees and allow for the scalability to grow quickly while maintaining the high level of safety, quality and trust which has become our branding in this industry.
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 on the Android platform for use with Tablet 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.
PPS Turnkey Program Management
While the primary goal of many of the inspection services we perform is regulatory compliance, we strive to provide distinct value-add services which enhance the benefit of the service and increase your bottom line. The way we conduct business is to understand the complete extent of the process and look for ways to streamline the project on both the contractor and utility sides of the house. Our technicians, supervisors, and management team take personal accountability of your program and that ownership shows in the teamwork and end result of our delivered product.
