Important Announcement – Removal of Non-Member asset owners from the service

Important Announcement – Removal of Non-Member asset owners from the service.

Commencing 1st February 2018 there will be a change to the way you are informed of ‘non-member’ utilities and asset owners on the caller confirmation sheet. Any asset owner name with the status ‘not notified’ is now an associate member of beforeUdig which notifies only you of their presence and you will need to contact them directly for further information. These associate members will be indicated as shown in the below example.

You will no longer be informed of any asset owners whom are not a member of the beforeUdig service, the enquiry confirmation will not provide details of those asset owners so it is your responsibility to identify and contact directly any asset owners not listed here. A list of asset owners that we have identified but have chosen not to join the beforeUdig service is listed below. There will be no change to the way that you or the beforeUdig member asset owners are notified of your intention to perform works near their assets. Should you have any questions regarding this change please contact 0800 B4UDIG (248 344).

Rotorua Lakes Council improve accessibility of information

As long-time members of beforeUdig Rotorua Lakes Council were challenged with a manually laborious response process to its incoming enquiries, tasked with supplying multiple sets of plans to provide asset information. The time consuming process required dedicated staff attention to ensure responses went out in a reasonably accepted timeframe.

Rotorua adopted an automated process with the use of PelicanCorp’s TicketAccess solution to efficiently deliver and maintain consistent detailed information to those conducting works near their underground assets, focussing on dependable service delivery and the avoidance of contractor damage.

By transforming and automating the response to beforeUdig enquiries TicketAccess has successfully eliminated the manual processes for Rotorua. By delivering a single asset plan pack within minutes, Rotorua have achieved improved accessibility to council information and ensuring a safer work environment. In addition, Rotorua have also incorporated a second line of defence in ensuring the safety of those working within areas where geothermal activity is present.
