Case Studies

Amey UK

For each road maintenance job or emergency call out carried out by one of its teams, Amey UK has to produce Safe Dig Packs, giving details of utility supplies in the area. Previously this was a laborious manual process. Now, using NDL's awi integration toolkit, it has automated the process of how these are produced, which has resulted in a cost saving of £240,000 a year. This has also enabled a more timely response to emergency repair requests and has improved management information.

Balfour Beatty

Accurate mapping information is critical when digging holes to maintain utility supplies. Balfour Beatty Utility Solutions has selected awiSX from NDL to automate the collection and provision of safe-dig map packs for its teams in the field, drawing on information from a variety of mapping applications. This has slashed the time it takes to produce the packs, cut production costs and significantly improved the accuracy of this vital information.
