McCormick Systems software for transmission and distribution contractors

August 22, 2010 | By Anthony Capkun

Saying it is filling a need in the market, McCormick Systems has produced software specifically for transmission & distribution (T&D) contractors. “While a construction project for a typical electrical contractor consists of buying and installing lighting, switchgear, wire and cable—and everything from UPS units to wirenuts—line contractors are dedicated to digging holes, planting poles and hanging high-voltage cable on them (or rehabilitating, renovation, and/or maintaining existing power lines),” says McCormick. The company goes on to say that line contractors use a lot of equipment, and many different types of trucks. “Sometimes they rent, sometimes they lease them, sometimes they own. That information has to be in our program, and it is.”
