Peer Utility Group (PUG)

About PUG

The Peer Utility Group (PUG) is a collaborative forum for professionals and organizations to explore using or moving to intelligent design workflows.

Some focus areas are:

  • Improve network infrastructure design with configurable workflows.
  • Streamline integrations with enterprise systems, GIS, and field applications.
  • Expanding collaboration and data exchange between infrastructure and service providers.
  • Share best practices and design knowledge with a community facing common challenges.

Born from a desire to learn from each other, for over 10 years, PUG has been instrumental in fostering open collaboration amongst organizations, enabling them to exchange tips, address challenges, and amplify the impact of intelligent solutions. PUG members convene annually to showcase achievements, brainstorm solutions to common challenges, and inspire breakthroughs.
