Laguna Hills, CA - August 19, 2009: Spatial Wave, Incorporated has worked with Underground Service Alert North (USA North) to implement Spatial Wave, Inc.’s Field Mapplet/Underground Service Alert (FM/USA). FM/USA provides full support USA North’s Tickets for utility locating throughout Central/Northern California and Nevada. The USA North process is also known as "one-call" or "call before you dig". Field Mapplet/USA is Spatial Wave, Inc.’s systematic management of the one call ticket workflow. It provides for rule based filtering of tickets which eliminates unnecessary locates and optimizes locator assignment.
Field Mapplet/USA receives USA North’s tickets from the Corporate Center in Concord, California and utilizes spatially enabled rules, allocating tickets into queues and determining proximity to the utility organization’s facilities. The organizations locators connect to their queue to download new tickets and upload completed tickets. Locators can then view ticket information, optimize routing, enter actions and comments and are able to quickly zoom to the ticket location and view detailed street or facility maps on their GPS enabled tablet PC. All ticket information is stored in a database for archival, querying and reporting.
Field Mapplet/USA provides the utility agency with a single application framework to manage USA North tickets from origination to archive. Improvements in the efficiency of USA North workflow will support the demands on the locators within the organization.
