In this Energy Central on-demand webcast, sponsored by Trimble, we'll take a closer look at end-to-end utility vegetation management (UVM) processes, workflows, technologies and benefits. We'll also introduce Trimble Vegetation Manager, an end-to-end vegetation management solution that gives utilities the tools to standardize and leverage LiDAR data, implement a vegetation program and report on compliance status. This innovative new technology can significantly reduce your vegetation management operational costs, exposure to risk and simplify managing your work process.

View this on-demand webcast and discover how to:
• Reduce OPEX by up to 10%
• Reduce insurance costs on high exposure networks
• Protect regulated income and objectively justify costs to the regulator
• Demonstrate compliance and maximize incentives
• Minimize major outages and mitigate the impact of wildfire/storms
• Reduce risk and exposure to litigation

Key functionality of Trimble Vegetation Manager:
• A single system that works across the entire UVM work cycle
• Enabling work identification, prioritization, planning, execution and reporting
• An industry-first, providing the tools for utilities to standardize and leverage  LiDAR data in-house
