UExcavate is an Automated Locates Organizer. UExcavate automatically turns your One Call requests into projects and locates automatically get attached to the project until all the locates have been received. Every project carries a status: Ready to Dig, About to Expire, Expired, Site Meet Required, awaiting locates. Based on these statuses, we're able to automate the merging of all locates and permits on a project into a single PDF and auto email it to person in the field. This makes it easy to print all documents at once and/or view them as a single PDF on a tablet or IPad. Other features you can do in UExcavate Includes attaching permits and any other documentation into the dig package, pull relocate/remark valid locates forward to the next project, delete pages from within PDFs and determine the expiry date of all your projects.

Currently, you may be using Excel, Dropbox, Adobe Acrobat, and your email to manage locates. There is an incredible amount of manual entry to this process and a risk for human error. UExcavate takes care of all of that so you can be reviewing your entire locate program at a click of a button. Clear focus Locating company delays, managing locates about to expire, and ensuring projects only go out with a full locate and permit package. You will ensure Safe Digging Practices are being followed.
