Impress Software has announced the availability of Impress for GIS 2.0, featuring the new Maintenance and Operations Module. With this new release, organizations can streamline their field service operations through the integration of SAP with ESRI's ArcGIS or Miner & Miner's ArcFM.
The Maintenance and Operations Module enables access to SAP asset and work management data and processes from a GIS front end. GIS users can now create work orders and notifications, update status information, and assign orders to features on the map. In addition, they can analyze SAP work order information with a "point-and-click" search using multiple user-defined criteria. This information can be rendered on the map and color-coded for spatial analysis and at-a-glance viewing to improve decision-making.
"Companies are looking for ways to decrease the inefficiencies of their field service organizations," said Warren Utt, CEO of Impress Software. "By putting asset information and maintenance processes at the fingertips of the GIS user, Impress for GIS 2.0 enables these companies to increase the productivity of field operations while simultaneously improving the service they deliver to their customers."
The Maintenance and Operations Module complements the existing Asset Data Management Module, which automatically synchronizes asset-related information to ensure both GIS and SAP systems remain up-to-date and accurate. In addition, the Asset Data Management Module allows GIS users to access and manipulate data, including processes to simultaneously update attributes for multiple assets.
