Innovyze and Cartegraph Connect to Power Smart Enterprise Asset Management
Broomfield, Colo., July 21, 2015 — Expanding the boundaries of smart water network innovation, Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for smart wet infrastructure, today announced seamless data exchange between the company’s InfoMaster and Cartegraph (Dubuque, IA). Creating a new frontier in decision analytics for water and wastewater utilities, this new reciprocal data interoperability leverages the strengths of both technologies to bring high-performance network modeling and decision analytics, comprehensive operations and work order management, and effective collaboration to users, helping to optimize the management of enterprise assets.
“The need for asset performance modeling and decision analytics, coupled with comprehensive work and asset management has never been more pressing,” said Cartegraph Director of Strategic Initiatives Pete Engstrom. “By using InfoMaster and Cartegraph in concert, water and wastewater utilities can now reliably evaluate the condition and performance of their assets, determine when they be repaired and when they should be replaced, identify the most cost-effective way to maintain them well into the future, plan future spending, and continue to best serve their customers.”
A powerful and advanced analytical asset management tool, InfoMaster uses state-of-the-art mathematical models to predict when a water or sewer pipe will fail, helping utilities determine the most cost-effective solution for avoiding or correcting the problem. In this way, users can ensure the best distribution of dollars spent on replacement and repair of underground pipes. This proactive “fix before break” approach can help utilities extend the useful life of their assets and improve their performance at maximum savings. Cartegraph, a comprehensive enterprise-wide work and asset management solution, helps utilities effectively manage day-to-day work, assets, resources, and requests. Used together, these complementary solutions offer powerful new ways to maximize productivity, improve system performance, reduce operational down times and maintenance costs, minimize inefficiencies, and enable better and faster decision making.
“Reciprocal data capabilities with Cartegraph and InfoMaster go far beyond the capabilities of a simple integration,” said J. Erick Heath, P.E., Vice President and Director of Innovyze Americas Operations. “Having the crucial ability to exchange data with leading CMMS software enables water and wastewater utilities to use information and analytics in new ways to drive higher productivity and quality while managing costs and increasing operational flexibility.”
