The InfraMarker System 3.0 from Berntsen International provides an integrated infrastructure marking and verification solution, including a suite of above- and belowground RFID marking products that enable precision locating in the field.

“It’s a faster and more reliable way of locating underground assets,” says Mike Klonsinski, director of business development for Berntsen International. “There’s always a tremendous amount of money and time wasted today in trying to relocate where you want to be.”

An updated mobile application improves marking, mapping and management of utility lines.

“We’ve tied it to a whole data collection and management system, so now a field locator can use a smartphone to see all the pictures, the past activity and documents associated with that asset while they’re actually out there locating,” Klonsinski says. “Changes are updated in real time, so anybody who wants to track how maintenance activity is progressing can just tap in from the office.”

The upgraded application incorporates submeter GPS marking, supports addition of pictures, video and other media, and includes activity time stamping for audit and management compliance.

“I think the biggest thing is it’s much easier and more intuitive to use in the field,” Klonsinski says. “We’ve improved the audit trail, we’ve added a better permissions feature, and we’ve improved the exporting capabilities, so it’s much easier to integrate all of that data into anybody’s back-end GIS system.”

The InfraMarker 3.0 mobile app is available for a free trial on the Google Play store. Berntsen International plans to release an iOS version in the near future. 800/518-0934;
