“After 30 years in the utility locating and mapping profession I finally have an easy to use technology built into my locator devices to provide insight into the quality, accountability and best practices for the on-site locate work. UTTO provides my supervisors and managers full insight into the locate work on site to ensure the work is performed in conformance with the locator training, best practices and customer expectations on all projects. The UTTO technology will revolutionize the way we locate, map and track our projects in the Utility damage prevention, Asset management, subsurface utility mapping and GIS projects.”

– Michael Twohig, VAC Group Pty. Ltd (Advanced Locate and Survey Division)

“UTTO has been a great partner with New York 811, responsive to our needs with what the application can do for us. With UTTO New York 811 has the opportunity to capture data from excavator site visits to damage data across our whole service area. With this opportunity New York 811 can more closely monitor damage trends and deficiencies that may be related to increase damages and areas of the region that New York 811 may not be educating and marketing the safe digging message. For tracking purposes UTTO has been instrumental in field compliance and accountability, a tool that proves invaluable.”
