Next Generation Geocentric Modeling Software To Help City of Billings Leverage True Enterprise-Wide Geospatial Hydraulic Modeling and Optimize Capital Projects
Broomfield, Colorado USA, November 23, 2005 – MWH Soft, a leading global provider of environmental and water resources applications software, today announced that the City of Billings, Montana, has chosen MWH Soft InfoWater and InfoSWMM ArcGIS-centric (ESRI, Redlands, CA) technology as the geospatial infrastructure modeling and management solution for its water distribution and sewer collection systems. The selection is the latest confirmation of MWH Soft’s market-leading momentum in advanced geospatial hydraulic infrastructure modeling solutions in North America.
Incorporated in 1882, the City of Billings is in Yellowstone County, the most populous county in Montana. The largest city in the state, its estimated population is 97,253. The city operates and maintains over 400 miles of water lines, 136 miles of storm drain pipes, and over 400 miles of sanitary sewer mains. Billings plans to leverage the power of InfoWater and InfoSWMM for its enterprise-wide GIS-integrated infrastructure modeling and management programs, used to support its comprehensive water and wastewater master planning effort and optimize capital improvement projects.
Built atop ArcGIS with native geodatabase support, InfoWater and InfoSWMM offer a single comprehensive, GIS-centric solution for analyzing and managing the most complex water distribution and sewer collections systems. A seamlessly integrated geospatial framework applies GIS intelligence to engineering-accurate information, coupled with the most advanced numerical computation, genetic algorithm optimization and object-component geospatial technologies in the marketplace. The result is a centralized, multi-function system that enables world-record performance, scalability, reliability, functionality and flexibility within the powerful ArcGIS environment, completely eliminating the need for inefficient, unreliable data synchronization, synching schemes, or middlelink interfaces required by other software. These factors and more translate to increased productivity, reduced costs, greater efficiency, and improved designs – giving water and wastewater utilities a clear competitive advantage.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the City of Billings’ progressive vision for enterprise-wide ArcGIS-centric infrastructure modeling and management,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D, President and COO of MWH Soft. “Our high-performance hydraulic infrastructure management and optimization solution gives the city unsurpassed power to maximize its geospatial data by integrating the enterprise with state-of-the-art water and sewer geoengineering applications. These advanced tools will facilitate seamless workflows, speed quality designs, reduce errors, decrease costs, and help Billings meet stringent water quality regulations and respond more quickly to customers’ needs.”
Top utilities are consistently choosing powerful MWH Soft geospatial technology for its unmatched GIS integration and optimization capabilities, enterprise data access and sharing, ease of use, flexibility, and superior functionality. “The City of Billings is at the forefront of GIS technology,” said J. Erick Heath, PE, Vice President of Sales and Client Relations at MWH Soft. “We are excited that they chose to standardize on MWH Soft industry-leading software as they expand their enterprise to world-class modeling performance to ensure better decision making and more economical operations.”
