Intergraph Corporation has recently announced Progress Energy has selected Intergraph’s G/Technology(TM) to upgrade and merge disparate AM/FM/GIS systems within its two electric utilities, Progress Energy Florida and Progress Energy Carolinas. Progress Energy will upgrade its existing FRAMME-based AM/FM/GIS applications combining them into a common G/Technology network model for all of Progress Energy.
The centralized system will improve data access for Progress Energy employees such as project planners, designers, GIS operators, inspectors and maintenance teams in the field. Progress Energy will use G/Technology as the core enabling technology of a comprehensive Geospatial Resource Management (GRM) system that streamlines service delivery workflows. The GRM system will enable Progress Energy to respond to outages more quickly, to better manage incoming and existing data, and more efficiently capture, design, and analyze network asset information for enhanced customer service and reduced operating and administrative costs.
Using Intergraph’s G/Technology as a foundation, the centralized system will enable Progress Energy to streamline day-to-day work processes, integrate key corporate systems and serve as a platform for ongoing application extensions, maintenance and upgrades. The upgrade to Intergraph’s G/Technology will enable Progress Energy to meet their objectives to increase productivity, minimize data errors and reduce restoration time for customers.
