AMX and Intergraph combine for utility management offering

18 August 2009

AMX International, complete enterprise solutions provider, has joined forces with Intergraph, integrating its geographic information system (GIS), outage management, design and mobile workforce management (MWFM) technology. AMX hopes the integrated business offering will provide utilities with a complete, end-to-end suite of technologies for managing day-to-day operations.

The combined offering is designed to maximise productivity and eliminate integration issues. Additional optional components for the pre-integrated solution include e-billing, business intelligence, cashiering, customer self-service and call centre software.

‘Utilities of all sizes are currently under increased pressure to deliver more energy while working more efficiently and cutting costs,’ said Jay Stinson, vice president of Utilities & Communications at Intergraph. ‘By combining our key strengths, Intergraph and AMX International are providing utilities with a turnkey solution for operating their businesses as successfully as possible. We foresee this solution being especially effective for smaller utilities that do not have the resources for lengthy, costly integration projects.’

‘Location-based technologies have fast become critical for the successful operation of utilities of all sizes,’ said Jay Price, president of AMX International. ‘Intergraph’s powerful, open technologies, support for industry standards and vast experience in the utilities sector make the company an obvious choice for completing our utilities management portfolio.’

The solution provides one common user interface across all departments, one point of system communications and work assignments, common, flexible workflows and quick, easy Web access to a variety of key information.

Intergraph geospatial software is claimed to improve data quality and accuracy to enable utilities to more efficiently manage and track thousands of power lines, poles, pipes and other assets while reducing costs. Utilities around the world rely on Intergraph for comprehensive utilities outage, asset and field force management to ensure efficient operation, unified monitoring and control and fast service restoration of distribution networks.
