Inc.’s Global Utility Tracking Systems ("GUTS") provides utility,
pipeline, locating, and construction companies with global technology in
monitoring, patrolling and protecting facilities any where in the world.
With over 20 years’ experience in construction, excavation, and
aviation, GUTS not only has an integrated suite of software and hardware
applications for anyone receiving tickets from a one call center but
also provides companies with GPS solutions to accurately document and
track their utilities, as required by governmental agencies, in a fast
growing and ever-changing environment. Our PC/Windows-based ICU Ticket
Management Program with the Vista One Call Mapping can efficiently
handle the job of receiving 50 or 200,000 tickets, map the tickets, and
at the same time display an utility’s overlay.
|Kuhagen, Inc. is a first line dealer for
Inter*Comm USA (ICU) Ticket Management program and the Vista One Call Mapping software. We
are also authorized dealers for Garmin International (GPS products), Whitestar Corporation
(digital cartography), Mobile Office Vehicle, Inc. (office/vehicle supplies) and Ingram
Micro Systems (computer components). Kuhagen, Inc. is also an end-user supplier for Future
Tech Systems, Inc. (notebook computer components) and supplies custom built computers with
automated back-up systems, disaster recovery, and uninterrupted power supplies for
continuous one call ticket reception.
|We provide utility companies with various types
of Global Positioning System (GPS) units for their field vehicles and patrol aircraft to
accurately locate facilities using longitude and latitude coordinates. Proven advantages
of using GPS units are that it saves man-hours in locating a facility and most
importantly, reduces response time by emergency teams. We can also provide the accuracy of
real time differential on the GPS units to locate stationary objects and moving mobile
vehicles to an accuracy of better than one meter. Our more sophisticated GPS unit has the
capabilities of storing longitude and latitude coordinates and downloading that data into
a computer system.
|We enable utility companies to build a flexible
and shareable system on a company wide and worldwide basis by linking GPS units to
computers using a specialized mapping software. Then, they can create and print customized
overlays detailing all of their facilities. The software has the unique ability to display
your companys current paper drawings, plats, blueprints, and as-builts, in addition
to NAD 27, NAD 83, and WGS 84 Tiger road/street mapping. The benefits users
have received from using our system are increased office and field productivity,
compliance with Federal and State regulators, and reduced overhead.
|Generally, we provide sales, installation,
training, rental of hardware, custom applications, and technical support for software. In
addition to customizing computer and GPS hardware and software for smaller companies,
users can share and input data, link to a common database, and allow company
standardization on a worldwide basis. Our company offers specialized packages, i.e. GPS
units, computer hardware, software, etc., which can be easily tailored to individual
company need and budget, with an eye for future expansion.
|As the future unfolds, we are working closely
with the One Call System, a state-wide program (where applicable) requiring notification
to utility companies of impending encroachments. Standardizing an integrated system
between the utility companies and the One Call system will create uniformity in the
processing of data and tracking of facilities throughout the United States. Coupled with
this view to expand services, Global Utility Tracking Systems' priority continues to be to
work with utility/One Call companies to provide to its users the highest performance, best
quality, and most robust and reliable service possible for improved monitoring,
patrolling, and protection of facilities with the highest level of integrity.
