Watch Out for WWETT POSM
POSM Software will be present and mingling at the 2019 WWETT Show, the largest water and wastewater industry convention in the country, Feb 21-23 at the Indiana Convention Center located in the heart of downtown Indianapolis. If you can’t find us wandering the floor, you might find POSM Software staff at the Rausch USA booth (No. 2416) on and off throughout the weekend. The techs at Rausch USA will be demonstrating our POSM Pro with the NEW Rausch Panomorph PureView SD and RCA 4.0 Full HD cameras (details below). You can interact with our software as it simulates an actual inspection.
POSM 10X Runs Best on Windows 10
Amazing how time flies when you’re taking care of business. Take those old Windows 7 computers still running last year’s version of POSM. Sure, if your POSM tech support agreement is current, all the upgrades are free and readily available, but the process takes a few hours, so you put it off. First a few days, then a few weeks, which turn into months.
And now… you can’t put if off any longer.
The Workstation Starting Point
It’s interesting for us here at POSM to observe. New prospects contact our Tech Support through this link to test our POSM Pro inspection software FREE for 60 days.
When those prospects become new partners (usually before the 60 days are up), 90% of all our clients consider their options and choose POSM Professional, our fully loaded program.
Almost all contractors and City workers grasp that Pro comes fully loaded with all the features and options they’ll need now, plus functions they may need later, depending on where their business growth takes them.
But when those same new partners consider our library database storage options, the opposite happens. Not all the time, not even the majority of the time. But often enough.
Rausch USA recently announced the release of their PureView SD Camera, the latest version of the Panamorph camera, a product developed in partnership with POSM Software.
Watch for more details from us about how this camera works together with POSM Software to give your inspections greatly enhanced accuracy in a unique panoramic "Pipe unwrapping 360° perspective" coming soon! In the meantime, click here to read the announcement by Rausch USA on their website.
POSM a Vital Partner in Hydromax USA's Coast-to-Coast Success
Established in 2003, Hydromax USA (HUSA) specializes in detailed, thorough investigations to report on the condition of water and waste pipe infrastructure from coast to coast across the United States.
Gabe Stewart of HUSA explained how POSM Software is a valuable partner to the company. Gabe joined HUSA as a data analyst in 2006. Now a Data Analyst Manager, he witnesses firsthand how HUSA and POSM Software work together to provide the detailed, accurate services their clients have come to expect.

POSM’s NASSCO-certified compatibility is a big reason HUSA uses POSM Pro on their large fleet of field data collection trucks with POSM Server for inspection analysis and library storage.. HUSA’s engineers operate a mixed group of inspection robots manufactured by CUES and Rausch, but POSM keeps everything speaking the same language. “The crews collect the [closed-circuit TV inspection] data and send it to our office. A data analyst reviews the information. We store all our inspection data in POSM.” Gabe explained that being NASSCO-certified “makes POSM inter-operative with other platforms, so the inspection data is ‘software agnostic.” We can all share a singular format that will run on any NASSCO-Certified software.”
Pipeline Services Company "Champion"s POSM Software
Champion (CCSI) is a nationwide pipeline company that specializes in inspection, repair, and cleaning services. Champion is comprised of four divisions - Industrial Cleaning, HVAC Duct Cleaning, Sewer Cleaning and Crossbore inspections. Its corporate office is in Cincinnati, OH with a satellite office in California.
According to Lincoln Stephenson, VP of Operations and Business Development, Champion has experienced steady growth since its inception in 1982, with a surge in the early 2000s when they added Crossbore inspections to their offerings. Today, crossbore inspections represent the majority of Champion’s business.
Lincoln says POSM had a lot to do with that.

PipeCheck Founder Credits POSM's "Beyond Out-of-the Box" Service
Brian Gipson started PipeCheck, LLC in Bowling Green, KY, in 2009 with Rausch inspection equipment and POSM Software. He’s never thought twice about that decision. He chose Rausch for the superior performance and laser profiling capabilities vital to his work, and POSM because “Bob [Katter, founder of POSM] had done the important research with Rausch, and he was the only one who offered a fully integrated package that worked seamlessly with it.”
