ITS’s Vegetation Management System (VMS) is a comprehensive Distribution and Transmission line vegetation management system that works as a stand-alone GIS database with feeds to and from your internal GIS system.
VMS has 3 primary modules: Planning, Production and Audit. The planning module is used by the utility or the vegetation contractor to plan the work for a given line or circuit. This data is then fed to the production module, which is used to manage and track the actual work. Not only does the production module track the work, but also provides tools to reconcile billing and generate timesheets for the vegetation contractor. The Audit module provides a methodology and process to identify and correct shortcomings in the work performed.
VMS uses a combination of Web and Windows 8 tablet technology to create a smooth field and management process for both the field contactor and the utility.
