According to the Department of Energy, power outages cost the U.S. economy $150 billion annually.
It’s a staggering number, and one of the reasons utilities are so focused on asset uptime. But the journey from plant to plug is a turbulent one, filled with expensive infrastructure and constant maintenance. Even when electricity is ready for consumer use, transformers are needed to bring voltages down to safe levels.
For the crews tasked with inspecting, testing, and certifying each transformer, manually driven processes make it difficult to keep up with the volume of work. If something goes wrong, it can mean anything from lost revenue to widespread blackouts.
Zinier helps field teams avoid outages by automating routine tasks, providing real-time visibility into the status of each crew, and increasing back-office efficiency with just-in-time scheduling and automatic work verification.
