ROCHESTER, NY: Bergmann Associates announces version 2.0 for Dig-Smart; a GIS-based commercial software product designed to manage and process One-Call Tickets in the ArcGIS 8.3 environment.
Dig-Smart 2.0 is a GIS-based, commercial product that was designed to helps utility companies process and locate excavation requests received from State One-Call Centers - usually a Not-For-Profit agency committed to protecting buried or underground assets (i.e. Dig-Safely NY). Depending upon the utility size (geographic) and the population serviced, utility companies with underground assets can receive anywhere from a few thousand to a few hundred thousand One-Call tickets annually.
As an extension to ESRI's ArcGIS 8.3, Dig-Smart 2.0 can receive and process incoming work order requests (a.k.a. Tickets) directly into the ArcMap environment. These tickets are automatically processed by Dig-Smart's engine and a distance-based search is performed to determine if utilities are present near the requested site.
Using Dig-Smart has proven to save utility companies thousands of dollars each year investigating One-Call ticket requests. Because Dig-Smart was developed as an extension to ArcGIS, no proprietary software additions are required to process the tickets. Users can investigate, validate, email, fax, report and archive One-Call tickets right from their familiar GIS desktop application.
Due to the presence of underground or buried utilities, Dig-Smart can be applied to a wide variety of industries including Gas and Electric, Pipeline, Water, Sewer and Stormwater, Fiber, Cable and Telecom and Transportation for signalized intersections.
