GIS: The Right Solution for Your Utility
Smart infrastructure management
GIS technology makes it easier for utilities to prioritize construction and maintenance, comply with regulations, analyze risk and integrity, and save time and money. From inventory development and streamlined field data collection, to systems integration with operation and maintenance software, we help engineers, dispatchers, accountants, and field crews optimize utility operations. No matter your utility’s previous experience with GIS, we will work with you to develop and implement a logical plan that leverages your existing geospatial assets, tools, and data.
What We Do
- Asset Management
- Field Inspections and Maintenance
- Systems Integration
- Workflow Optimization
- GIS Program Development
- Collaboration and Engagement
Strategic management of utility assets is crucial. Our GIS and asset management expertise can help you integrate your disparate information sources into a common, operational picture. This allows you to maximize the capabilities, lifespan, and performance of your assets while simultaneously minimizing operating costs.
Field Inspections and Maintenance
Pen and paper—often the norm for field inspection and maintenance crews—are inefficient, and don’t provide a way to integrate information with GIS and other asset management systems. By leveraging a combination of mobile maps and electronic field forms, your utility can access and report on critical asset information on the fly, optimizing workflows and ultimately saving time and money.
Systems integration provides a more complete picture of your utility, improves staff workflows, and minimizes data duplication, resulting in increased efficiency and better reporting. We offer services that integrate your systems, helping you to connect disparate data sources; enhance and enrich your records; and provide opportunities for improved data access.
When your workflow is more efficient, your organization is more effective. From inspection results that are available on the fly to automating daily reports, we can help set up workflow tools to maximize your productivity. You’ll be empowering your staff with the information they need—when and where they need it.
GIS Program Development
Spend more time focused on your work, and less time trying to figure out GIS software. Whether you need a little or a lot of GIS assistance, we can provide tools, templates, and training for staff; on-call resources for any of your mapping or data needs; or assistance developing an implementation strategy for ramping up or creating your GIS program.
Collaboration and Engagement
Maps are powerful communication tools. Modern online mapping platforms and applications make it efficient and inexpensive to deploy tools that improve access to information, and also facilitate collaboration. Be it data migration and systems integration, web app configuration, or mobile workforce deployment, we will ensure you’re getting the most out of your technology.
