Broomfield, Colorado USA, July 26, 2011 — Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for wet infrastructure, today announced that the City of Oklahoma City, OK, has elected to adopt Innovyze’s industry-leading InfoWater MSX Executive Suite, InfoWater UDF Suite and CapPlan ArcGIS-centric (Esri Redlands, CA) software to support its comprehensive capital improvement program. The decision speaks to Innovyze’s market-leading momentum in advanced geospatial infrastructure modeling and management solutions in North America.
Oklahoma City, “The Heartland City,” has a population of more than 550,000 on 622 square miles — one of the largest cities in land area in the country. The city will use Innovyze programs to develop accurate, comprehensive models of its water supply and distribution systems. These models will aid the enterprise in optimizing its capital improvement plans to provide maximum benefit for the lowest cost. They will help determine cost-effective system operational and management strategies that best accommodate rapid community growth and continue to ensure a safe, stable water supply.
“We needed to find a complete GIS-centric solution for both water network analysis and asset performance modeling — two critical keys to business advantage and success,” said Larry Hare, P.E., CIP Design Manager, Water Utility Department for the City. “The new applications suite will help us improve productivity, realize many efficiencies in a short time, and pass these benefits on to our customers through better designs, maintenance plans and quality standards.”
Developed and supported by industry experts and with direct support to geodatabases, the innovative network and asset performance modeling technology of the Innovyze geospatial water software family addresses every facet of utility infrastructure management, operation, and protection — delivering the highest rate of return in the industry. Engineers and GIS professionals can easily analyze and simulate various conditions; accurately assess multi-source, multi-quality systems,; pinpoint system deficiencies; and determine the most cost-effective physical and operational improvements to achieve optimum performance and regulatory compliance while enhancing community relations.
“There is a geospatial revolution sweeping our industry,” said Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., Hon.D.WRE, F.ASCE, President and COO of Innovyze. “The changing technological dynamics of the global waterworks industry – from basic interoperable to true GIS-centric solutions – are spurring a search for new ways to achieve a competitive advantage and meet critical business goals.
