Think Power Solutions Provide Innovative Electric Utilities Solutions Using Esri Technology
July 7, 2015—Think Power Solutions, service and product provider to power, energy and critical infrastructure industries is releasing its new software platform Think Power ONE. The new platform provides Utilities with SaaS based, mobile-ready tools and analytics to manage project documents, collect data from the field, view project progress, and gain business intelligence through secure, real-time project dashboards. Think Power Solutions built the product using the ArcGIS Platform and have partnered with Esri, the global leader in geographic information system (GIS) modeling and mapping technology. The two are teaming up to provide innovative technology solutions to Electric Utilities that will help them solve today’s toughest challenges. The software product, Think Power ONE, delivers a suite of software, analytic, business intelligence, and documentation tools. The offering of Think Power ONE suite includes Think Power Docs (Docs), Think Power Logs (Logs), Unified Construction Management (UCM) and Unified Asset Management (UAM).
“Think Power Solutions has gotten it right! Think Power ONE with its data collection, documentation, and business intelligence tools has provided the complete software solution needed for Utilities. The field staff use it, the project managers and engineers like it, and management get valuable real-time insights from it” said Jim Woodard, Transmission Manager with Xcel Energy.
“Think Power Solutions with their Think Power ONE platform has combined innovative technology with superb inspection services delivery to exceed our schedule, cost, and quality expectations in the completion of lattice tower inspections” said Jeff Dupart with the High Voltage Power Delivery group at CenterPoint Energy.
“Our partnership with Think Power Solutions has been very productive and has led us to implement several new data-driven best practices in our projects. Think Power ONE helps us in all aspects of our project management, documentation management, and benchmarking activities.” said Nathan Robason with Transmission Construction at Xcel Energy.
“Esri is excited to partner with Think Power Solutions. By combining Esri GIS with their innovative approach to asset and project management, they will deliver significant value to our customers. Their solutions will help utilities ensure they have accurate and up to date information about their assets and improve communication and collaboration with field workers.” said Dave Twichell, Electric and Gas Industry Specialist at Esri.
“Some of the key challenges in the Utility industry include – aged assets, documentation management, inadequate geospatial and visual representation of assets with real-time project management tools, project planning and integrated execution in complex and broken work-flows in multi-stakeholder operations – all leading to process inefficiencies, project planning and management and operational challenges. Additionally, significant changes looming on the Utility industry in the form of FERC Order 1000 and large workforce retirement will require dramatically improved benchmarking of activities and efficiency in operations. Think Power ONE addresses these key challenges. It helps Utilities interpret data and provide actionable intelligence to drive process improvement and better project management,” said Hari Vasudevan, Co-founder of Think Power Solutions. He added “We are thrilled to be able to give our clients access to Esri’s suite of products and combine it with our data collection, documentation management, and business intelligence suite through the Think Power ONE platform”.
