Waltham, Maryland, USA – 11 May 2006 – Impress Software, a provider of packaged integration applications, announced the availability of Impress for GIS 2.0, featuring the new Maintenance and Operations Module. With this new release, organizations can more effectively streamline their field service operations through the integration of SAP with ESRI’s ArcGIS or Miner & Miner’s ArcFM.
The new Maintenance and Operations module enables access to SAP asset and work management data and processes from a GIS front end. GIS users can now create work orders and notifications, update status information, and assign orders to features on the map. In addition, they can analyze SAP work order information with a ‘point-and-click’ search using multiple user-defined criteria. This information can be rendered on the map and color-coded for spatial analysis and at-a-glance viewing to improve decision-making.
