Utility firm doubles mobile GIS capabilities

Redlands, California, USA—Truckee Donner Public Utility District, that serves 12,000 electric meters and 11,500 water meters in Northern California, has more than doubled its number of field crew equipped with mobile GIS technology. The development takes place as a result of unlimited licenses provided in ESRI’s Small Utility Enterprise License Agreement (SU-ELA) programme.

Through the SU-ELA programme, the utility is assured unlimited deployments to desktop, server, and mobile devices of ESRI’s ArcGIS platform, along with maintenance and support for products. Other benefits include staff training for a reduced cost and complimentary passes to ESRI’s International User Conference.

With information accessible via mobile GIS devices rather than a paper map, Truckee Donner staff is able to make better decisions. Additionally, having accurate data on demand has improved the utility’s response time and customer service.

At the heart of the SU-ELA programme is ESRI’s ArcGIS software, an open, scalable, and interoperable platform that provides a complete system to create, serve, and use geographic information.
