Hexagon’s geographic information system has been chosen by Huntsville Utilities to consolidate the utility’s GIS solutions into one. The new GIS will serve as the foundation for building and managing Huntsville Utilities’ electric, gas, water and fiber infrastructure.
Huntsville Utilities has partnered with Hexagon for three decades to provide utility services to Huntsville and Madison County. With Hexagon’s GIS solutions providing a single source of location-based information, Huntsville Utilities will have real-time data for the operations, engineering and accounting teams to help provide service to the more than 330,000 customers.
Huntsville Business Journal quoted Wes Kelley, CEO of Huntsville Utilities as saying that where they go and what they do in the next 20 years is based on foundational decisions such as their GIS core. With Hexagon’s solution, they have a single source of information for their physical assets, a trusted platform upon which they will build all their solutions.
Applications of the new GIS system include outage management workflows, preventive maintenance strategies and more. Users of the new system will be able to design and maintain information about the utility’s assets via the web and mobile devices, which extend the solution into the field to make critical decisions.
Steven Cost, president of Hexagon’s Safety & Infrastructure Division said that they’re honored that Huntsville Utilities selected Hexagon’s GIS solutions. They are proud to be part of Huntsville Utilities’ path forward, not only as a technology provider, but also as a partner in the development of their local community.
