IPEG Corporation Announces the Launch of New UTTO® Cloud-Based Locate Technology

Latest innovation in pipe and cable locating announced at CGA 811 Excavation Safety Conference & Expo in Orlando, Florida

ORLANDO, Fla. -- IPEG Corporation of Naples, Florida announced its latest innovation, "UTTO" at the CGA 811 Excavation Safety Conference & Expo in Orlando, Florida.

UTTO is the next generation of "locate" technology and delivers patented cloud-based mobile locating technologies that are revolutionizing the Plant Protection and Buried Asset Management industry by connecting the locate device, field worker and the damage prevention process.

No longer will utility companies need to repeatedly send technicians into the field without prior knowledge of precisely where their underground assets reside. With UTTO's cloud-based platform, mobile tablet app and networked locator device, all the locate and position data that was being lost and thrown away is seamlessly captured and stored without changing field technicians work practice or procedures.

Alan Haddy, President of IPEG Corp said "We believe this new technology will revolutionize the locate industry. Since the first underground pipes and cables were laid, utility companies and skilled field technicians have had to search repeatedly to find their assets. Now, they can map and relocate those assets with the support of our cloud-based technology saving time, money and a reduction in mislocates."

In tandem with the unveiling of the new technology platform, IPEG announced it closed its first deal with a major telecommunication company. "After four years of innovation, we are delighted to have an early adopter onboard and know they will be seeing a quick return on their investment," said Mr. Haddy.

Specifically developed for the locate industry, UTTO (derived from Greek "beneath") delivers a simple user experience by integrating positioning, mobile and cloud technologies with sophisticated back-end systems and patented complex algorithms.

By locating the target using advanced, customized GPS technology and cloud-connected satellite updates for super fast fixes, UTTO maps underground assets to within one meter and is compatible with existing locate devices.
