Imperial Irrigation District Signs ELA with TC Technology

Carlsbad, CA, – April 26, 2011 – Imperial Irrigation District (IID) signed an enterprise license agreement (ELA) with TC Technology to gain unlimited access to GO! Sync Mobile GIS. The initial implementation benefits the electric department of IID.

IID provides electric power to more than 145,000 customers in the Imperial Valley and parts of Riverside and San Diego counties. As the sixth largest utility in California, IID controls more than 1,100 megawatts of energy derived from a diverse resource portfolio that includes its own generation, and long- and short-term power purchases. As a consumer-owned utility, IID Energy works to efficiently and effectively meet customers’ demands at the best possible rates to help maintain the area’s low cost-of-living.

To enhance field operations, IID is equipping personnel in the electric department with GO! Sync Mobile GIS. Immediate goals include improved overall quality of GIS data, inspection procedures, and automation of the underground service alert (USA) process. Armed with intuitive sketching capability, workers make field notes of observed anomalies. Technicians use the notations to match GIS with field observations improving the quality of GIS data.

With GPS and the Inspection Extension, IID uses field-friendly forms to collect maintenance, compliance, and safety information that is automatically uploaded into GIS. Once stored in the enterprise GIS, follow-up, analysis, and reporting of inspection results are streamlined.

With the Ticket Integration Extension, underground locators with laptops automatically receive USA tickets sent from the state’s call center. Color-coded tickets are available in an electronic format, displayed on a map, and worked using intuitive forms. As status is updated, the tickets are automatically synchronized with an enterprise database, which is used for storage, analysis and reporting. The result is an automated workflow that leverages GIS and eliminates troublesome paper.

GO! Sync is the cost-effective mobile GIS solution perfectly suited for organizations of any size invested in Esri software. Boasting a suite of standard ready-to-deploy tools, GO! Sync Mobile GIS makes enterprise deployment straightforward with a flexible, centrally managed application framework that allows for simple integration with popular work management and asset management solutions.

Sync is the Mobile GIS Standard.
