Laser-Scan announced that it has taken over the Utilities delivery business of Ewan Optimal Solutions (EOS). On June 3rd Ewan Group and Laser-Scan agreed a deal whereby Laser-Scan assumed the responsibility for delivering Ewan Optimal Solutions Utility contracts in the United Kingdom. EOS had earlier made a strategic decision to embed Radius Topology in a new web browser based GIS application being developed for Northern Ireland Water Service.
EOS and Laser-Scan have worked together to build this solution since 2003. The application combines both above and below ground asset information and is delivered on top of an Oracle9i database and uses MapInfo technologies.
Laser-Scan is not new to the Utility vertical market sector. It was the original British Gas Digital Records software support supplier and delivered water utility applications to both Wessex Water and Bristol Waterworks. The new generation of applications are built around third party front-end tools and Oracle relational databases complemented by Radius Topology toolsets.
