Technology is a critical component of the damage prevention industry and has the potential to be a primary driver in greater efficiency and improved safety outcomes. The pace of advancements is accelerating as the technologies become more accurate and powerful while costs and the physical bulk of platforms decline.
The real challenges lie in overcoming barriers to adoption and finding ways to integrate the technologies into the damage prevention ecosystem. The Technology Committee’s role is to spread the word about the technologies. In this report we’ve attempted to demonstrate the possibilities that technology advancements can produce, while being clear-eyed about the barriers to adoption.
