Understanding PZM Alerts

PZM Alerts will help manage your utility inspection and maintenance program for you! By analyzing important data and empowering employees, PZM puts the most important tasks to schedule and repair in Alerts. Employees can check in with the Alerts every day, and know what to do next.

PZM Alerts Help:

  • Inspectors view any inspections are coming due.
  • Crew members identify what deficiencies to repair next.
  • Engineers visualize any problem areas on the system to fix next.
  • Managers free-up time for higher value work.

Your electrical equipment inspections should never become routine. A cursory look over of your equipment where inspectors pencil whip an inspection form, then file the form away never to be heard from again, are relics of the past.

Your inspection program can add so much more value than what we typically find in the electrical utility industry. PZM prides itself on providing comprehensive, equipment-specific inspection questions, but we don't stop there.

PZM Alerts are designed specifically to help utilities keep inspections up-to-date, and alert managers and techs to highly impactful deficiencies in their system.

The Alerts feature in PZM analyzes important data and generates custom-built reports that deliver quality information that is actionable and can be used to dramatically improve your electrical system.

We designed our Alerts feature to provide all users, at all levels of the organization with the most important, real-time, actionable information. PZM Alerts will quickly become your first stop each week to plan your work.
