Truth Matters in the Pole Business

by: Alex Fitch

Decision making and verification can be a complex process around a utility pole. The truth is often hard to find in a world where analog and manual work practices are the norm. Yet, there is real value in seeking it. Without a doubt, a true record provides the ability to make the right decisions more often.As put by Jaime Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase, “Most decisions are not binary, and there are usually better answers waiting to be found if you do the analysis and involve the right people.” Keep in mind that Dimon has been on Time’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world four separate times. He knows a thing or two about making good decisions.

“There are usually better answers waiting to be found if you do the analysis and involve the right people.”

IKE brings the power of pole-specific technology and processes together with a team of dedicated pole experts. The goal is to provide better answers to the question of what is true about a utility pole. Anyone using the IKE solution is granting people the power to make better decisions that are based in truth.

The IKE Record

The IKE Record is truth. It is a digital twin of a pole that shows without doubt what is on the pole. The IKE record verifies every piece of data you could need to know about it. From clearances to make-ready-engineering assessments and to pole loading, the truth of the IKE Record leaves no room for doubt. It is this truth that has led to IKE’s adoption at the world’s largest communication company as well as countless other communications companies, utilities, and service providers.

By understanding why people have come to place so much trust in the IKE Record, you will quickly uncover the secrets of IKE Analyze. Our back end analysis takes the verification and quality control processes that are either a headache for most or simply ignored, and places it in the hands of qualified and objective analysts. In 2019, that means our in-house team of expert pole analysts.

With IKE Analyze, once data has been collected in the field, it is simply uploaded to IKE Analyze. So begins the process of creating an IKE Record that is true to what is in the real world. Pole data from each individual pole is scrutinized and checked for quality via separate processes before any deliverable is returned to a customer. That is three separate sets of eyes that agree what they are seeing is true. With tens of thousands of poles under their belts, our analysts are some of the most qualified in the industry to quickly assess pole information and arrive at the truth.
