Intergraph G/Technology Selected By The Gas Company in Hawaii


Geofacilities Management System to Make Critical Gas Infrastructure Data Available Enterprisewide

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Jan. 9, 2006 – Intergraph today announced The Gas Company, Hawaii, has selected Intergraph’s G/Technology™ to manage its geofacilities data network, including full gas infrastructure data integration at all levels of systems, applications and views. G/Technology’s gas-specific solutionware will seamlessly manage The Gas Company’s planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance functions, simplifying projects and processes.

The contract includes migrating existing gas network data from the company’s legacy proprietary commercial GIS into a G/Technology-based geofacilities management system. G/Technology’s commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) architecture mitigates implementation risk, while its open architecture will facilitate enterprise data access by facility designers, Web users and employees involved in compliance, cathodic protection and marketing, providing them with the enterprise information they need to better perform tasks and increase customer service levels.

“The open architecture of the G/Technology solution suite and its flexibility in allowing configuration adjustments as well as Intergraph’s proven commitment to the Hawaii market were contributing factors in our selection,” said Jim Yates, president, The Gas Company. “Intergraph’s solution gives employees the power to make decisions that improve productivity and increase customer satisfaction.”

Jay Stinson, vice president and general manager, Intergraph Utilities and Communications, said, “The selection of G/Technology by The Gas Company represents the culmination of many years of involvement and investment in the Hawaiian utilities and communications market. G/Technology’s gas-specific solutionware gives enterprise users access to the latest, most accurate information from the facility model – saving time and increasing productivity.”
