“VEG-WORKS” powered by StakeOut®

Halter Tree Service Inc. has helped develop this new technology. It is helping utilities to streamline the entire work order process from job initiation to close out. When implemented into your utility, the effects are powerful. It enables workplanners to track the status of various jobs more accurately and identify special conditions (such as “flaggers needed”) during assessment.

Some of the features this software is capable of include:

· Show work graphically on real world (geo-referenced) backgrounds
· Indicate start and stop points for mowing or side-trimming
· Group related work orders to reduce costs
· Capture tamper-proof digital signatures
· Generate cost estimates
· Automatically generate and populate property owner permission forms
· Capture the time and work completed by field crews

Here is how the process starts!!!:

· With mapping data information provided from the utility, the powell program has the capability to take Auto-Cad
layer technology and convert it to ESRI (shape file) technology for various information onto a map format. Being
G.I.S. referenced, the progam is loaded with the first layer of background maps (road maps, county line maps)
next layer is the utility power-line or gas-line maps. Followed by county to county parcel mapping. Parcel mapping
allows work-planners to know who legally owns the property of where work is to be performed. Next is our
equipment that has GPS will appear on same map as roads, powerlines, parcel maps. Halter Tree Service workplanners
has access to information that can provide amazing results!!

Some of the benefits for your utility could include:

· Work planners can give maps with detailed instructions to the crews allowing
for the tree crews to quickly find the work locations and complete the
tree work. In addition to locating trees to be removed or trimmed, starting
and stopping points for mowing and side trimming can be graphically captured
on a map. Thus improving efficiency!!!
