Innovyze InfoMaster Connects with WinCan Automated Data Import to Power Smart Wastewater Asset Management
Broomfield, Colo., Sept. 29, 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 the addition of automated data import from WinCan software (CD Lab AG, Murten, Switzerland) to InfoMaster, its industry-leading GIS-centric analytical asset management software. Creating a new frontier in decision analytics for wastewater utilities, this data exchange leverages the strengths of both technologies to bring powerful, combined modeling-oriented and collection-oriented prioritization to users, helping them optimize enterprise sewer asset management.
“The need to combine modeling-oriented prioritization with collection-oriented prioritization for effectively managing and sustaining wastewater infrastructure has never been more pressing,” said Mike Russin, Business Manager for Pipeline Analytics (The WinCan Subsidiary for North and South America). “By using InfoMaster andWinCan VX in concert, wastewater utilities can now reliably complete and document inspection of their sewer assets, evaluate their condition and performance, determine when they should be repaired or replaced, and identify the most cost-effective way to maintain them well into the future.”
Raj Patil, Strategic Business Development Manager for Pipeline Analytics added, “WinCan’s ability to validate the inspection data using industry standard ratings leads to accurate analysis and better decisions. Clean data yields clear results. We are excited about the increased value this relationship will bring to infrastructure management organizations.”
A powerful and highly 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. WinCan VX, a comprehensive software for inspection and management of sewer networks, offers the core functionality utilities need to collect, organize, analyze, securely publish and share pipe inspection data and generate inspection reports using standard or user-defined templates. The software’s measurement tools help quantify defects, and sophisticated search capabilities filter observations by any combination of criteria, enabling sewer asset managers to create a sound, fact-based foundation for informed and defensible maintenance decisions.
Used together, these complementary solutions offer powerful new ways to optimize pipeline inspection, improve sewer system performance, reduce operational down times and maintenance costs, minimize inefficiencies, and enable better and faster decision making.
“Automated importing of WinCan data to InfoMaster goes 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 import data from leading pipe inspection software enables utilities to use information and analytics in new ways to drive higher productivity and quality while managing costs and increasing operational flexibility.”
