DBYD Australia visits New Zealand

PelicanCorp NZ Ltd recently hosted NSW/ACT Dial Before You Dig board members whom were on a fact finding mission to see how the industry operates within NZ. Electrix Ltd whom are the maintenance contractor for Vector Gas were kind enough to demonstrate the catastrophe that may occur should a damaged medium pressure gas pipe ignite. The resulting ignition saw flames shooting out the side of the pipe for up to 5 metres, anyone within the proximity would have experienced severe burns.

beforeUdig Members Seminar 2015

beforeUdig Members Seminar 2015

One of our ongoing commitments to our Members is to organise regular meetings with our beforeUdig service Members.
During September we ran seminars; on topics that covered 1) new market initiatives in ticket automation; 2) permitting processes and 3) works co-ordination. This was a great opportunity to discuss the Members suggestions and feedback on the service with other users and key PelicanCorp staff.
We are aiming at running such meetings twice a year and our next beforeUdig Member Conference will take place in March 2016. The email will be sent out with more details regarding our upcoming member meetup closer to the date.
If you have any suggestions our would like to ask our members forum any questions send Contact Phil Cornforth with an email outling your query.

PelicanCorp customer wins 2016 GITA ANZ DBYD High Performance Award!

For the past 10 years, The Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) have been awarding the Dial Before You Dig High Performance Award to recognise high performance results by member companies to DBYD enquiries.

Introduced in 2007, the award is made on the basis of results from a competition conducted anonymously by GITA which compares the responses of a member company to a set of enquiries.

The PelicanCorp TicketAccess automation solution has been paramount in providing high quality and quick speed responses to DBYD enquiries, and during it’s time 7 of the GITA High Performance Award winners have been utilising TicketAccess.

These responses are judged on the basis of speed of response, quality of response, availability, accuracy and quality of material provided to the enquirer. The assessment involved DBYD responses from companies that are GITA members and also part of the national DBYD system (which includes most of the major utilities in Australia).

A big congratulations to this year’s winner Unity Water, and to runners up - Western Power and ActewAGL, also both users of the PelicanCorp solution.
