Ticket Risk Assessment

When dealing with valuable infrastructure, it is essential that we are able to quickly assess the risk of every ticket received. To address this damage prevention and regulatory need of utility providers, USIC has deployed a Ticket Risk Assessment solution that automatically evaluates job risk and projects the probability of a damage occurring with each ticket.
