Patch Your Staffing Gaps with Geospatial Analytics

Do more with less using geospatial analytics.

  • Problem: Staffing shortages leave your monitoring short-handed.
  • Solution: Leverage your observations with geospatial analytics.
  • Benefit: Fewer incidents, less headache, better bottom line.

A few years ago, I started paying a company to remove snow from my driveway and sidewalks. It is a luxury that affords my young family more quality time together during the long winters in North Dakota. The owner of the snow removal company called me yesterday because one of his employees had run into my garage with a new, larger snowblower they had just put into service. He apologized for the damage and promised to repair the damage when the weather warms this spring.

In passing, he mentioned that he was struggling to find employees to provide reliable service, given today’s very competitive job market. His solution was to buy a larger unit to move more snow with less staffing. Does this sound familiar? Is your company being pressed to provide the same services with fewer personnel? If so, what solutions are being considered by your company? Let geospatial analytics help you leverage your lean workforce.

Satelytics believes that geospatial analytics can benefit industries facing the challenge of monitoring large asset areas. The number of examples and success stories of the programs being implemented by our customers is growing dramatically and now extends to the stresses of today’s challenging labor market. Here’s how we can help:

High-resolution satellite data with spatial resolution down to the square foot is commercially available right now from various vendors. This data, coupled with science-backed analytics and machine learning algorithms processing on the cloud, facilitates timely alerts to conditions outside the norm. Satelytics’ customers utilize our results, which are available a few hours after satellite overpass, to remotely monitor their infrastructure for encroachments and human activities in their ROWs, vegetation management including speciation, trees in the electric corridor, water quality, land movements, methane measurements (flow rate, concentration, and source), and more, from a single set of data.

We don’t charge user licenses. Our objective is to drive value to as many different user groups within our customer’s organizations as possible, making us sticky by addressing your many problems. With satellite data, each alert is tied back to a latitude and longitude, directing field personnel only to areas needing their immediate attention.

Results are used for compliance, environmental, and remediation reporting, with project data easily accessible on the cloud and stored in perpetuity. Many customers pass the data results to their internal software platforms to build inventory and direct work orders. Once the data has been purchased, the opportunities to put it to work are limitless.

Once a satellite monitoring program has been established, routine infrastructure monitoring becomes proactive, allowing customers to avoid negative consequences and drive operational efficiency for their teams.

Are your precious employees being spread thin? Could these solutions help you better manage the areas under your control? Reach out to us today to see and hear how our customers are doing more with geospatial data analytics.
