Hexagon to unite GIS solutions for Huntsville Utilities

G/Technology to serve as foundation for advanced utility operations

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., August 11, 2020

Hexagon’s Safety & Infrastructure division today announced Huntsville Utilities, one of the largest municipal electric providers in the southeastern U.S., has chosen Hexagon’s geographic information system (GIS) Intergraph G/Technology® as the foundation for building and managing its electric, gas, water and fiber assets.

Huntsville Utilities will leverage G/Technology to consolidate its multiple existing GIS solutions into one definitive source of reliable, location-based information regarding the facility network and connectivity. This will provide real-time data for the operations, engineering and accounting teams who rely on this data to provide safe, reliable service to customers.

“Huntsville Utilities was looking for a GIS system to provide a single source of information for our physical assets to eliminate system overlap,” said Wes Kelley, CEO of Huntsville Utilities. “Hexagon’s G/Technology will serve as that single trusted foundation upon which we will build all our solutions, from outage management and tree trimming to preventive maintenance plans.”

Users will also be able to design and maintain asset information in Hexagon’s G/Technology network model with enterprisewide access from both the web and mobile devices.

“We’re honored Huntsville Utilities selected Hexagon’s GIS solutions,” said Steven Cost, president of Hexagon’s Safety & Infrastructure division. “We are proud to be part of Huntsville Utilities’ path forward not only as a technology provider, but also as a partner in the development of our local community in Madison County, Alabama.”

Hexagon’s Safety & Infrastructure division has pioneered the development and application of location-based systems for electric, communications, water and gas companies for decades. The company supports hundreds of utilities and communications customers around the world with solutions for network engineering, network operations and other business functions.
