UTTO presents with Chevron at the 2023 Irth User Summit

<p>UTTO co-presented with Chevron at the Irth 2023 User Summit. The presentation covered how UTTO, Chevron and Irth have collaborated to integrate UTTO’s locate, mapping and digital service solutions with Irth’s ticket system so Chevron’s field workforce can leverage UTTO’s industry leading Locate Assurance platform to obtain on-site locate and mapping risk and performance data.</p> <p>This process occurs BEFORE the ticket is closed with automatic quality assessment of captured mapping datasets. This ensures any data sent from the field to the Chevron GIS team for legacy map layer updates and corrections is automatically pre-qualified and meets Chevron’s high quality and best practice standards.</p> <p>For more information, please contact:</p> <p>Jeanne Zagursky – jeanne@utto.com</p> <p> </p>
