Remote asset monitoring for utility companies

Osperity’s cloud-based solution enables utility companies to inspect and monitor their remote locations and assets from anywhere with any connected device – outside of corporate IT

Utility companies own massive infrastructure networks, including poles, conductors, remote transformers and substations. They are considered critical infrastructure, which must be monitored, inspected and maintained. A lot of manpower, time, money and other resources are consumed to ensure safety, security and uptime of critical infrastructure.

In a post-COVID world where a reduced on-site workforce is quickly becoming the norm, AI is enhancing human jobs. With Osperity, utility companies can increase productivity through virtual asset inspections, improve
HS&E compliance with automated safety monitoring, as well as greatly strengthen security, accountability and operational efficiencies through proactive activity detection and exception-based alerting.

According to Forbes:
Utilities’ CIOs, CISOs and IT leaders need to consider how they can integrate AI and video analytics into their enterprise security strategy today. Using video cameras as sensors, every threat surface a Utility business has can be monitored 24/7 and, when combined with software, secured to every endpoint.
