Height sticks and measuring wheels are antiquated tools for pole data collection. Advances in measurement technology now exist that allow for improved productivity in both the field and the office. Part of the equation is the smartphone in every inspector’s pocket. It is always ideal when you can utilize hardware that everyone already owns and knows how to use.
When you link a smartphone or tablet with a laser rangefinder for pole inspections and joint-use pole audits, companies can save time, reduce costs and increase the accuracy of the data collected.
