DBYD teams with Deloitte and Esri

Deloitte Consulting and Esri Australia will help deliver Dial Before You Dig’s (DBYD) next generation referral service.

This week, DBYD announced the news which will see the company collaborate with Esri on the new referral service and with Deloitte in the development of the digital platform that will operate it.

Self-managed kiosks for reporting and information uploads will be delivered in the first phase of the project, followed by enhanced data integration capabilities, map-based search functions, an improved user interface and various other features.

Esri will leverage its geospatial information service technology for the new service, while Deloitte will develop the digital platform using Microsoft Azure software.

DBYD CEO Stuart Burdack said the company was pleased to be collaborating with these businesses to enhance the protection of $388 billion worth of underground utility assets around Australia.

“For more than two decades DBYD has remained one of Australia’s most relevant and respected services prioritising worker safety and the protection of critical underground infrastructure, above all else,” he said.

“Our vision of ‘zero harm, zero damage’ sits at the heart of our decision to pave a new, innovative path forward for the DBYD service.”

The new referral service will be built and tested over the next year before coming online in the second half of 2021.
