ECI's technology services consist of comprehensive work measurement and remote data collection systems.
ECI has developed eWPS, a software solution that enables the remote collection, transfer, access and management of data using Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs), existing IT infrastructure and the Internet. It is compatible with a wide range of maintenance functions including work planning, QA audits, hazard tree identification, tree-caused outage interruption investigation, GIS/GPS, and many more.

ECI has provided a line clearance work measurement system to utilities for more than 20 years. TRES is a comprehensive information management software package that provides the data necessary to effectively manage line clearance operations. It combines vegetation maintenance records with a reliable work measurement system that identifies opportunities for efficiency improvement and helps maximize return on investment. TRES is offered as a Window-based software for your computer system or through ECI's service bureau. It is fully customized to each client.
Let ECI's Tree Reliability Improvement Program (TRIP) help you identify unique tree-caused outage conditions and trends on your system, and target limited hazard tree resources to make significant long-term improvements. Our system builds on several years of research into tree failure conditions, allowing you to gather post-outage information, and input it into a comprehensive database using a purpose-built PDA application. As you populate the database with information about tree-caused outage conditions on your system, you can then sort and query the data to identify problem species and recognize common failure conditions for your system. This information can be combined with ECI's experience to help you develop an effective hazard tree prioritization and scheduling model that is right for you.
On implementing a new and improved vegetation management program: “We would not be where we are now without the help of ECI.”
