Joshua Kerby has worked as an engineer for AIMS Companies for over 10 years. Joshua knows a lot about pipeline maintenance, particularly in one area where he brings a great deal of expertise. “I’ve specialized in crossbore inspections for over a decade. Without a doubt, crossbore inspection and repair is my bread and butter.” He added that his co-worker, Dave Alonzo is another crossbore expert in AIMS Company. David was co-featured in part one.

A crossbore is a tricky pipeline incident in which a sewer line had accidentally intersected with another underground utility (gas, communication, electric, etc). The integrity of the pipeline needs to be determined and repaired as fast and as safely as possible. The inspection and repair of a crossbore event is a highly specialized engineering service that AIMS provides. Among its apps within its core program, POSM Software includes an industry-leading tool to assist with crossbore inspection. “I recommend POSM Crossbore Tools,” said Joshua. “I’ve never used anything else like it.” 

Among its features, Crossbore Tools:

  • Assist in the most thorough and accurate mapping possible.
  • Make it easy to document all observations and actions taken.
  • Provide accountability of your actions in a convenient, portable way.

These tools, combined with best practices, should help minimize potential issues in handling crossbores. You can read much more about POSM’s Crossbore Tools here.

Joshua said, “Bob (Katter, co-founder and programming lead within POSM) has done a lot to create custom fields specifically for crossbore. The customization is the best part of the Crossbore Tools. I’ve known Bob for a long time. He works with many municipalities–gas and power companies–that all specialize in crossbore projects, so the Tools can be specifically catered to each project. The customization is key, because no two crossbore projects are the same.

"...customization is key, because no two crossbore projects are the same."

Joshua was full of praises for POSM’s tech support, especially when it comes to crossbore projects. “Crossbores are a fairly serious issue. We’re running 30-40 trucks on crossbore issues alone and it I can’t get ahold of anyone to trouble-shoot an issue  immediately, then I’m stuck. It’s always a time sensitive thing. POSM Tech Support is second to none. I never have an issue with getting tech support when we need it. Other software companies just don’t provide that level of support. Not even close. I don’t think anyone who has used other software could argue that point.”

If your company specializes in crossbore detection, investigation, and repair, you owe it to yourself to try out POSM’s Crossbore Tools, and find out why Joshua Kerby of AIMS Companies says he’s never used anything else like it.
