KorTerra, Inc. Creates New Smartphone App for Safe Digging
MINNEAPOLIS --(Business Wire)--
A new smartphone app has been developed by KorTerra, Inc., a damage
prevention software and one call center solutions company, to provide
safe digging and important call before you dig information. KorTerra's
new damage prevention app is currently being used by Minnesota's call
before you dig center, Gopher State One Call. The app is available for
download in the Apple
App Store and Google
Play for Apple (News - Alert) or Android smartphone or tablet devices. This
additional avenue of communication to one call centers, such as Gopher
State One Call, allows anyone who is planing to dig a quick and easy
way to provide information about a dig project directly from their
smartphone. With the app, users can also receive further information
about their dig project, such as when the dig site has been marked with
paint or flags, and what the colors of the paint and flags mean.
Providing dig information to one call centers not only helps keep people
safe and prevents damage to underground utilities, it is also the law in
all 50 states. The new app gives anyone who is planning to dig an easy
way to follow state laws by providing safe digging information, as well
as links to submit their dig information online, from their smartphone.
"KorTerra is proud to have created an app which will be useful to
individuals across the damage prevention industry, while promoting safe
digging," said Chris Stendal, president of KorTerra.
