Now recognized by the most widely used sewer system assessment program in
North America, CTZoom's CTSpec Sewer provides standardized data to meet
TERREBONNE, QC, Sept. 15 /CNW Telbec/ - CTZoom Technologies Inc.
("CTZoom") has become the first Canadian vendor to provide sewer system
assessment software that complies with the requirements of the Pipe Assessment
Certification Program (PACP), the standard for engineers, inspection firms and
municipal managers looking to compile, analyze, compare and manage CCTV
inspection data. The database in CTZoom's leading-edge CTSpec Sewer solution
has been PACP-certified by the U.S.-based National Association of Sewer
Services Companies (NASSCO).
With PACP protocols now integrated into CTSpec Sewer software, Canadian
municipalities that deal with inspection firms using PACP-certified tools can
keep a close eye on their sewer systems in a time- and cost-effective manner.
Equipped with a consistent set of analysis criteria, codes and classifications
for asset breakdowns and defects used in PACP-certified systems throughout
North America, CTSpec Sewer can enable municipalities across the continent to
easily benchmark the performance of their systems and make enlightened
decisions about the management of their rehabilitation and preventive
While it has been working toward PACP certification in the
English-speaking markets in Canada and the United States, CTZoom has also sat
on the ad hoc committee formed by the Centre for Expertise and Research on
Infrastructures in Urban Areas (CERIU) to earn the right to grant PACP
certification in French on a Quebec-wide basis.
The PACP certification of CTSpec Sewer software comes on the heels of the
Company's accreditation to train analysts and field operators in NASSCO
protocols. CTZoom is the first manufacturing firm in Canada qualified to
provide this type of training. The PACP certification program, which to date
has been completed by thousands of users, was founded in 2001 by NASSCO.
