We recently sponsored a dp-PRO webinar featuring Southwest Gas where the gas utility company shared their successful damage prevention efforts for below-ground critical assets.
Before partnering with Irth Solutions, Southwest Gas was doing tremendous work to reduce damage to their critical infrastructure and build strong, strategic partnerships with local excavators. However, their biggest roadblock was they lacked the ability to tie all their efforts together.
After implementing UtiliSphere’s ticket management system and Risk Scoring technology SmartScore, they’ve not only built better relationships with excavators — and gotten to them before digging began — but they’ve also had significant damage reduction.
Alex Murray, administrator of damage prevention, and Dennis Bott, administrator of damage prevention, from Southwest Gas provide examples and step-by-step instructions on how they turned a partnership with Irth Solutions into a success for their company.
