DDS Designer

DDS Designer, a complementary software solution for our Distribution Design Studio

  • DDS Designer allows you to design your overhead and underground distribution lines in the field safely, efficiently and accurately with GPS/GNSS collection, eliminating double data entry and paper.
  • No more carrying bulky survey equipment or walking through brush with a measuring tape to stake your job.
  • Utility Designers have the flexibility to start their design in the field, or export their Distribution Design Studio office design to their mobile device to confirm accurate work point locations.
  • Materials can be added in the field or back at the office – it’s up to you.
  • DDS Designer helps you speed up the time it takes to get your next project out of your head and into the hands of the construction crew, so you can focus on serving your customers well.

Design your job safely and accurately in the field. DDS Designer is compatible with phones and tablets. With or without an internet connection.
