A Geographic Information System (GIS) is critical to any utility’s business. A successful GIS will store and map a vast amount of information about the utility’s electric, gas, and water systems, as well as outside plants. It can be a simple cloud-based solution or a multi-faceted solution combining software pieces from several vendors. At either end of the spectrum, our goal is to provide a current-state assessment, implementation strategy, conduct vendor interviews, and offer final recommendations that align with these objectives and your organization size.
For maximum value, your GIS should become an integrated application at the utility. Many business processes or systems are impacted by and dependent upon a reliable GIS, including field design or staking, outage management systems (OMS), outage management prediction, line personnel maps, system planning, electric system modeling, inventory systems, asset accounting, and others.
