Key statistics

Gas supplier in Oregon
2 million customers

Requirements

Having access to real-time data to be able to accurately dispatch the nearest crew to a job site is paramount so they can perform their work and analysis.  

Results

Implementation of IQGeo software has simplified portfolio of apps, reduced technical debt and eliminated paper processes.

IQGeo has the agility that we were looking for as well as the leadership in this space and I think those two factors sealed the deal for us.

Key statistics

Gas and electric company
302,000 electric customers

Requirements

During emergency situations it is vital to get crews and damage assessors to understand what has happened, report back and enable timely restoration.

Results

Enabled real-time decision making, improved restoration times while meeting regulatory requirements.

As a utility, the ability to have communications with an organization that listens and develops and tests with you is amazing.

Jeffrey Cito, Project Manager – Operations ECMC, Central Hudson

Key statistics

Fiber infrastructure provider

Focused on rural communities

22 counties across the United Kingdom

Requirements

Eliminate paper processes with a field mobile deployment and digitize the data to be able to maintain the infrastructure in years to come. 

Results

Created one source of truth, access to real time as-built data and improved collaboration between office, field teams and contractors.

Offline support, validating designs and version control were causing us major headaches. Thanks to IQGeo, these are now problems of the past.

Gordon Perry, Technical Director, Gigaclear

Key statistics

Electric cooperative
Over 30,000 members
Washington, United States

Requirements

Develop a meter deployment tool to initially deploy 33,000 electric meters and to create a digital twin, so the electrical system out in the field can be replicated back into ADMS and outage management systems.  

Results

Provided field crews with a modern platform, using single log on with access to real-time data on an easy to use system, while saving time on meter installation.

As an electric cooperative, we’re committed to technology advancements that improve service for our members, safety, system reliability and employee relations. IQGeo helps us to tick a lot of these customer satisfaction boxes.

Key statistics

Largest electric utility in Japan

Provides energy to population of
44 million

4th largest electric utility globally

Requirements

Following Typhoon Faxai there was 934,000 electricity outages. TEPCO Power Grid was required to have daily press meetings to keep everyone informed of progress, but the lack of accurate and current information made it almost hard to forecast recovery timing. They quickly needed a new solution that would enable TEPCO to respond efficiently and effectively to this situation, and future severe weather conditions.

Results

IQGeo’s geospatial Platform made it easy for TEPCO to visualize accurate damaged location and accelerate collaboration with key decision-makers, while sharing vital information to citizen and governments. The supervisory ministry asked for a detailed report in just a month and the IQGeo Platform enabled the team to do this quickly and efficiently.

Without IQGeo, it would take double the time to grasp the total damage for extreme weather events.

Key statistics

Public utility company

105,600 electric customers

82,700 natural gas customers

Requirements

Automate survey tracking and sought a solution to replace the antiquated process of highlighting maps of survey areas or “From/To Street Lists”. Although widely used by utilities, this system does not offer definitive proof that the exercise was satisfied.

Results

Achieved key operational goals, including; improve leak management, increase the amount of collective data on new installation, and the ability to respond to field observations more quickly.

After adopting the IQGeo Inspection & Survey product, Unitil has increased operational efficiencies and has been able to produce verifiable, traceable and complete audit records in support of mobile leak survey activities.

Stacey Kilroy, Sr. Integrity Management and Pipeline Safety Coordinator, Unitil

Key statistics

Requirements

Web and mobile GIS platform to support critical operational processes with groups such as cable plant locates, field techs and construction. Provide teams with up-to-date, accurate information and enable operations teams to meet business, deployment and regulatory requirements.

Results

Significantly reduced the average time it takes to locate cables from minutes to just seconds.  Positive adoption, with users praising the solution’s performance, usability and integration with Google.

We’ve been very impressed with IQGeo, the team has worked incredibly quickly and been able to cater for our specific business and technical requirements.

Nelson Gillette, Director IS, TELUS

Results

Temas have instant “self-serving” access to up-to-date information about the fiber network and assignments, which has delivered dramatic improvements in productivity, response times and customer service. 

Users love the IQGeo tool and have been amazed at the incredible performance. One big area of improvement is that IQGeo has reduced the time to understand and identify a network issue. This directly impacts our KPI’s and metrics in a very positive way.
