Intergraph Corp. said that it has implemented more than 60 successful migrations from FRAMME to G/Technology, which integrates geofacilities management with operational support and service delivery applications. G/Technology is built as an open, standards-compliant, spatially enabled data management system.

Organizations that have implemented G/Technology include:

  • Central Vermont Public Service CVPS, the largest electric company in Vermont, serves more than 158,000 customers in 152 communities.
  • HNG Midt-Nord HNG distributes natural gas in the Greater Copenhagen (Denmark) area. In Central and North Jutland, natural gas is distributed by Naturgas Midt-Nord, a municipally owned partnership.
  • KPN KPN provides telephone, Internet and television services to personal customers in The Netherlands. It provides a range of services, from voice, Internet and data services to full-managed outsourced ICT solutions, in The Netherlands and internationally, as well as mobile services in The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and western Europe. KPN serves 6 million wireline voice subscribers, 8.7 million mobile customers, 2.3 million Internet customers and 0.3 million TV-customers in the Netherlands as well as 15.6 million mobile customers in Germany and Belgium.

“G/Technology is built on Intergraph’s knowledge of utilities and communications company best practices, addressing the needs for cost containment, process improvement, systems integration, customer base retention, and new service opportunities. Adoption of G/Technology continues to gain momentum, confirming that leading organizations aspire to a truly open, standards-based technology with strong emphasis on integration,” said Jay Stinson, vice president, Intergraph Utilities & Communications. “Intergraph designed the suite with an emphasis on configurability, return on investment, and role-based permissions, allowing organizations to benefit from the collective best practices of their industry peers.”

G/Technology delivers fast data access, lower cost of ownership, and easier administration while speeding reporting, eliminating connectivity errors, and reducing time to update maps, compared to FRAMME. Spatial reporting is exponentially faster in G/Technology: A project requiring three days to produce with FRAMME takes approximately 30 minutes with G/Technology, including reporting or mapping consumers within a certain distance along a conductor. As a benefit of designing new jobs in G/Technology, regulatory reporting of new assets becomes more accurate and easier.
