Don’t do any more work until you read this.
The following information will change the way you think about the way you manage your job site – forever.
Today’s field service environment is getting faster and faster. The need to stay on time and under budget is critical to stay ahead of the competition.
Feeling the pressure from these different factors, some companies are starting to take shortcuts that could cause serious issues in the future. If you’re one of these companies, STOP.
- There are a lot of underground structures that are unable to be located because they haven’t been documented anywhere.
- A single damage to a major utility could mean losing your business forever. Sure, insurance can cover a lot of these types of incidents – but what happens when your insurance company drops you?
- As underground utility locating companies consolidate, the quality of the marks on the ground gets worse every single day.
- A single lawsuit can wipe out everything you have worked so hard to achieve.
- Your clients are going to require you to prove proper locating and documentation.
You could get lucky and succeed in cutting corners with little consequences, or it could just be a matter of time until you end up in court for devastating property damage or even injuries to human life (fatal or otherwise). When faced with the possibility of such a potentially horrific aftermath, it becomes clear that no gain is worth the risk.
In short, shortcuts can be quick roads to disaster in the construction business. Now that you know why let us help you document your sites simply, efficiently and with speed.
Leave Paperwork in the Past.
There’s no reason to tie up your business with loads of unnecessary paperwork (and that’s especially so in an industry with so much responsibility). Papers can get lost, damaged or disappear… handwriting can be partially or completely illegible. Don’t let paperwork be the deciding factor in the event of an incident or complaint.

You can also generate custom reports in seconds.
