USA North 811 Teams with PelicanCorp to Bring Industry Leading Technology to California and Nevada
PelicanCorp Software Boosts USA North 811 Capabilities for Improved Underground Utility Safety
Irvine, California – August 11, 2021 PelicanCorp today announces its partnership with Underground Service Alert of Northern California and Nevada (USA North 811) to create an industry leading notification service.
PelicanCorp’s advanced 6th generation notification center software, NotificationAccess, will enable USA North 811 to provide an intuitive and streamlined process while more efficiently handling rising ticket volumes.
“We’re excited to announce this new direction for USA North on 811 Day. Our partnership with PelicanCorp significantly improves our ability to implement leading technologies that will enhance the user experience for excavators and our member facility operators in California and Nevada,” said James Wingate, Executive Director of USA North 811.
August 11 (8/11) serves as a convenient reminder for residents and excavation professionals alike to contact 811 before doing any digging work, no matter the size of the job. 811 notification centers across America provide the platform, process, and required information to have underground utility lines located and marked to protect them from damage that could occur during excavation.
“We've been collaborating with USA North 811 for a number of years and enjoy seeing their success in the damage prevention industry,” said Duane Rodgers, CEO, PelicanCorp. “We're very excited to assist them with their new initiative and believe that leveraging our technology is critical to the success of any damage prevention organization.”
Hosted by PelicanCorp in a high-availability cloud environment, the NotificationAccess solution manages all notification tickets from any location, at any time, by leveraging advanced web and mobile-based technologies. NotificationAccess is built using a unique mapping platform, enabling the most accurate dig site location capture on the market.
