Peer Utility Group

Peer Utility Group (PUG)

What is PUG?

The Peer Utility Group (PUG) functions as an industry technical resource center with the intent of finding solutions to common problems through the assistance of forums, webinars, staff support, and an annual conference.
The PUG was a result of a roundtable discussion hosted by SBS at Autodesk University. These discussions allowed utilities to exchange ideas and to give one another input about projects and the use of AutoCAD® based design applications (such as AUD) in end-to-end utility workflows and integrations with enterprise systems, GIS, and field solutions. The utilities recognized the benefits of such informal discussions and requested that a group be formed.
Since then, the PUG continually grows in numbers, offering more access to information by connecting you with experienced individuals able to provide direction for your project.
Best of all, it’s free. Join today!
